riverbrewer Here's a quick video of a recent rescape of my tank. I am still not 100% satisfied w/ the foreground and am still contemplating where to move the crypts that are hogging up the foreground space. I think I might move them to the right side in front of the barclaya. What would you do?

speedie408 Looks great my friend. Makes me miss my roselines. I swear, once I quit shrimp I'm going to do it big with planted tanks. Really do miss my collectoritis days.

Keep up the good work!

Riverbrewers 75G "Roselines and A New Beginning"

The Roselines seem totally fine in the 75g right now. They zip all over the tank but will still most likely get a bigger home in due time. I would eventually like to get a 220 up and running for them.

Green_Flash Hi, do you think Roselines can spend their entire life in a 48 x 18 tank? I really like them but heard they can get huge and not sure what the minimum tank size is.

I like that laser Cory too!

riverbrewer Thanks! The substrate is a mixture of black fluorite, dark fluorite, and generic pea gravel. I was a little leery of mixing in the pea gravel, but am now glad that I decided to take the plunge. It gives the overall substrate look a nice contrast with the darker fluorite.

RobMc I really like your substrate, looks fantastic. Gotta love a fully flora'd tank in 2 months - grats.
