Thanks Tom. You know I said the same exact thing when I went to exotic yesterday. I looked at their 55g tanks, and I was like...damn mine is much bigger (haha thats what she said ). I actually went home and had to re-measure my tank to make sure it was a 55g LOL.

accordztech Tank cleared up, and I bought 4 more ottos and 2 spotted nerite snails. So now I have 10 ottos and 4 nerites. Its like a circus watching them lol. My RCS are finally comming out to play. But I try to watch this tank for a hour a day to see if there are still strays of my wild shrimp. There are a few, have to catch them boogers in the act =).

Amanos from my nano are in as well. One jumped out of my net and I had to catch him under my bed...what an idiot.





Im trying to decide here, maybe you guys can help me out.

I was thinking of putting glosso in the foreground (light green) and some starugene sp 49 in the background (dark green). What do you think??

!shadow! dude you did exactly what I had in mind and came out great on this pic


A bit more blyxa around the bottom would add a nice touch or even some hairgrass pieces here and there would add a nice touch.

Grifter Nice tank , corys look like Julii ( well they look the same as mine fun little critters to watch )
12-15-2011 06:49 AM
accordztech So can anyone name this corydora?


Updated pics of my tank, Sorry its blurry but it was also dirty looking. Ill get better pics soon. I found a way to make the javafern look better and not just THROWN in there. I left out quite a bit (sitting on the right hand side temporary) and made it look much nicer. Also you cant see, but I seeded the ground with some glosso from my other tank. I will probably move the Blyxa back into the wood and find a more attractive way to have my sponge filters in.



I been lazy to take out my power heads also lol.

HAH I havent even got around to that yet. Ill hopefully have time tomorrow to do so.

But I HATE DIATOMS! Got my light on low and co2 turned down. Waiting a few days and going to go higher and higher till the stupid diatoms goes away. Its so annoying. I think I need maybe 300 more shrimp to clean it up lol

Give me a day or 2 and ill see what I can use and what I don't need. If you had any midground plants or Capet plants I would like to know. Anubias petite I was thinking in the trunk areas.
