Good work!

the depth in the end came out fantastic. the varying rock sizes also add to this effect in combo with the blyxa.

marioman72 New quick update!

got tooka couple pics yesterday before i got rid of my angel fish. i traded them in to the LFS after getting sick of them :/ as everyone said they r just to big. they never paired so i figured i got to males or something of the sort. ether way they r gone now for something more interesting soon to come. not sure what that is quite yet but we will see on monday!

my kribs have formed a fantastic pair! i called them the married couple of the tank because of their personality haha. they have made their own cave and they live together in this little dwelling while the females pregnant defending and clean it constantly. quite cool to see

other wise the plants and everything are doing fantastic. i took out all of the DHG because it was getting to messy and now have only blyxa with a few things of hyrdocotyle here and there. the stem plant in the back is just their for now until i can find a place for it somewhere in one of my tanks. had no were to put it except in that back corner

well anyways tuns of pictures time!

thanks! yea i agree they make everything a lot smaller but in hope of breeding this is my largest tank haha i would love to set up another tank for just these guys but i have no more room in my fish room hahah.

Very sad to hear about the losses due to the power outages caused by the nor'easter.
yea it sucks but im over it now. glad it could be of inspiration! maybe in the future ill have another tank to take these guys out and have thier own space haha. but if they dont breed with in the next few months they r getting booted for more rummys hahah

flow is a big part in this tank and getting the upwards feel is very important.
