CL Yeah man I've been busy out of the country and in my fourth year of engineering. Still check my old subscribed threads though!

CL Stunning publication! That looks really sharp. I love it, Devin!

hydrophyte This tank is featured in an article in the current issue of AMAZONAS Magazine. I think it turned out pretty good. I tried to include some good specific information on growing the mangrove trees in a riparium setup.

Thanks so much. The C. ciliata was growing well for a while, but then it fizzled. I think that it got too shady for it.

hydrophyte Here's one of the quick shots that I got last week. I got the tank cleaned up pretty good, but I need to keep shooting.

I really like the plants in here a lot, especially the Pandanus.

hydrophyte Somebody wants a magazine article about this tank. I gotta get it cleaned up and photo-ready again.

I have had a hard time trying to get good pictures of the killis. They are pretty little fish, but they look pale and washed out against the aragonite sand. I think I'll just try to get a few good tank shots, and then do some studio photos for the fish in a smaller specimen tank against a black background. They will probably look better like that.

Out of curiosity, where did you get the Pandanus?
Yeah that would be great if you could watch out for diamond killis. I have read that they can be hard to find. Naked gobies would be cool too. I want to keep this tank set up for a while longer because I really like the plants and fish. I have stuff here I can send in trade.

I got the P. tectorius from a nursery in Hawaii. I have some P. utilis here and it is also a very easy plant and really cool. They grow well in the riparium planters and Pandanus also make great potted houseplants.

Here are a couple more shots with better views of the foliage.
