|phorty||Fellow CHicagoan checking in. How is this tank doing? I'm currently setting up a 75 with a school of blue angels...|

|zenche||hrm. that is a very interesting observation. I think i will give that a shot.|

Y'know, a journal on a minimalist tank is a challenge. It's like a painting - some artists fill with every detail, some capture a brief essence. I like to discover why an individual choses one over the other, or any of the points inbetween - style is an extension of our inner beings, and I think that is so interesting.
Perhaps part of the journal could include what you are saying/experiencing with your scape.

lol re: evil twin.
i'll probably start a journal this weekend.
it's kind humorous though..with a minimalistic style...there's less "content" to go into a journal, lol.
was also interesting to note just how much light is bounced back from having light colored PFS substrate vs. black. it makes for quite a visible difference. can see if comparing the shot above to that from 11.13.

You'd BETTER give us a journal - we all have to suffer through winter, too! lol
Both set-ups have a great beauty - you have a natural talent for scaping. Because one was light and one is dark, I will forever think of them as the tank and it evil twin - lol
The darkness accents the color of the angels nicely. Because you didn't black out the background, the dramatic shapes of the driftwood really stand out...lovely!

Looks good man. I am more partial to the black substrate though.
And do not deny us a journal with lots of pics!

well folks, to those who were following along, it is with sadness that i'm updating this to say Hanzomori is no more. While I LOVED the look, it simply wasn't going to be sustainable and maintainable in the long run. the wood was breaking down much faster than I anticipated and the white PFS was a pita to keep clean.
did a 180 on the tank yesterday, after picking up stuff at our chicago fish swap (GCCA). still waiting for a large plant package from Gordon, which should get here Wednesday. Not sure if I'm going to keep a formal journal on the new scape...but this is how the tank looks now:

thanks. that jar thingy looks pretty cool. i might not try it with this spawn, but might get one for the next spawn.
my biggest concern is my inability to raise fresh bbs for them right now.

|150EH||Go to Angels Plus and look through their website, they have some great breeding jars and informative videos too, those could stack up some cash or credit even at your LFS.|

what kind of trap did you set up?
as I observe the wood, i don't think this is going to work. they are already showing signs of deterioration...not sure if it's fungi or rot, but seeing how it's not even been a month, I think I'm going to need to come up with an alternative plan.
