Wingsdlc Great use of rocks and plants. I like the single style planting scheme. This gives me hope and ideas for my new 40G breeder.

my past tanks were unsuccessful LOADS of plants that I love in the beginning, then end up overgrown and out of control. I'm planning a 100 or 125 6' for the basement and am thinking of going with a limited variety. I think it looks more natural as well.

i really like your tank and will be using it as reference!

Thanks, I think I will add 4 more fish to the tank and call it complete. I have already lost track unfortunately but I believe there are 14 fish currently. I don't have a huge amount of hiding spots so I want to overstock to limit the aggression. I am also heavily over filtering to account for the large number of fish.

marioman72 yea a faster lens will help a lot with the lighting problems, a tripod is always good help too! then u dont have to put up the iso to super highs and keep the images super sharp.

2in10 Good to hear on the roseate bulb. An UVL Actinic White also is good. It has nice red and blue spectrum to bring out fish colors and plant colors. The plants also seem to appriciate some blue spectrum.

Thanks for the tip! I will give it a try, although I feel like I have tried every combination of parameters haha. I am trying to get the fastest shutter speed possible but it seems that I am limited to about 1/500s at f/3.5 and iso 3200. I think that this is the limiting factor with this lens...

The ghost shots are fun to do I must say. I have done a bunch of them so far. It is nice to finally have a higher quality.more versatile camera.

Thanks guys! I definitely have decided to keep the white sand. I am really liking the colors in this tank. It is in my dining room and I find myself just staring at it while my family and I are eating...its kinda annoying my wife

I added a T8 light strip with a Roseate bulb and I find it makes a big difference from how I had it. The fish pop even more and the extra light helps with taking pics. I am obsessed with taking pics...
