This tank has been up and down and still fighting a war with some algae, but I went down on Christmas morning and the sun was coming in the window at the right angle and I was able to snap a few pics of it.

Looks great man! Can't wait to see a lighted tank shot, those rocks are going to be a nice contrast with all the green.

That's pretty cool--looks like the sun shining through from between mountaintops.

MrJG...I will try and post some lighted tank shots this week

Thx hydrophyte....what is really neat about this is that this tank sits in my basement and the sun was shining in thru a casement window right into this tank hitting those rocks just right. I was glad I went down when I did to see it and get those shots.

I also have 12 new Threadfin Rainbows in this tank. Before I even started to set this tank up, those are the fish I wanted for this tank and I love them!

Dang! Great shots! The grass looks fantastic, and the stems look great.
The MTS seems to be working pretty good

No need to be envious if you saw it right now. I am having a problem with the water being cloudy and I even have Purigen in the filter. It may just need a water change.

Yep...I am an Ohioian! I don't think there are too many people on this forum from Ohio. I know of a few, but I just don't think the planted tank hobby is as big here in Ohio as it is elsewhere. My LFS don't even sell live plants or even have a tank setup with one. If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know and thx for the kind words.

Wow! I can't believe it has been since January that I updated this journal. The tank has been thru alot of problems but I believe has balanced out. I ran into a bout with green water algae for about a month, and after doing about a 3 day blackout and just letting it run it's course, it cleared up finally. Then, my cat knocked my T5 light into the water and so I have been using T8 bulbs but have not seen any bad form that. I am battling some hair algae in my grass but so far I have been keeping that under control. Well enough of the talking, here are some pics...







Also....if anyone is thinking that the SAE is out of place in this tank....he is! I will be switching him to my 90 gal this week. When I got him he was tiny, so he has been growing out in this tank and he is now ready to move!

Nice tank man, I like how that carpet really makes it look like a field or something, very nice.
P.S. I also really like the color on those rocks.

Nice tank! Love the carpet!

Planted tanks aren't popular in Ohio? LOL

Thx! I hope it will look a whole lot better once the HM fills in behind the rocks. It has taken it seems like forever to get the belem to fill in.

I am starting to see more people from Ohio on these sites. I hope the planted tanks will become more popular around here. I am just trying to fill the quota for about 3 people!
