This tank came together fast, everything looks great so far. You got a great selection of plants from everyone.
Thanks, yea planted tank members pretty much rock! These are mostly Tom Barr plants so thats why they are so beautiful
Any concerns about the fireplace below? how hot does the tank get?
What cam are you using? those pic's are so crisp!
Not too many problems with the fireplace, I think it's pretty well insulated on top of it, its a gas fireplace so I can always flip it off with a flip of the switch.
I bought the camera at the same place that Shakespeare bought his pen. I just turn it on and it takes amazing photos for me! Haha, its a D300 though, these were taken with either my 50mm f1.8 or my tokina 11-16mm f2.8.
if this tank was a woman, it would probably be a young version of megan fox.
Best comment ever
Wonderful. The pictures, plants and scaping are all simply gorgeous. The P stellata is so luxurious. This is definitely a favorite tank of mine now.
Yea its a cool plant, it hope both stems start to grow since I decapitated it a few days ago.
looks fantastic! you are pretty good at taking pictures too~
Thanks, I'd hope so otherwise I would have tons of angry brides following me around.

Very cool, I'm sure there are a lot better tanks to go off of. I can't really use a canister because of the physical location of the tank. The HOB filters are working awesome though, since I have dual ones I get really good circulation, and I run them pretty low so they don't stir up the service at all (the main complaint against HOB's). I found out about the clearance center here
. It's easy to just buy some nice plants, stick them in a tank for a few days and see how beautiful it is. It's another thing to see the tank looking this good a month from now
