|hydrophyte||Yeah they are a good design. I have another one in another tank that has been going non-stop for three years.|

I added three planters with Cyperus. This will look good when these new plants have had some time to fill in with new leaves.
I also got around to installing this mini Koralia that was sitting in its box for a while. I like the look of the tank with more flow. An extra powerhead can also help a lot with filtration by keeping particles of crud up in suspension.

|hydrophyte||I decided to add Cyperus again. I'll have new pictures in a couple of hours here when the water clears again.|

Here are a couple shots to show the plants better.
That Ruellia 'Katie' is a really handy plant.

Here's a quick shot. It needs to grow in some more. I wanted to have some Cyperus in there to represent an African papyrus swamp, but I ended up with these other plants. These species all do pretty well in high pH and hard water, although the aluminum plant looks little chlorotic because it's probably not getting enough iron.

|hydrophyte||I am cleaning up this tank again. It has all of the same fish, but new plants. I will try to get a picture tomorrow after the water has cleared up again.|

I like the "Pembe" a lot too. Unfortunately, it looks as though the pair has broken up. I had read that this can happen after a large water change, so I was trying to do water changes at only about 10% of the water volume. I did such a water change a couple of weeks ago and just a few minutes later I saw the male fish chasing the female fish around the tank. He hasn't been beating up on her too bad, but she hides over in a top corner. I hope that they might be able to re-bond sometime.
Yeah the Lke Inle danios are not a Tanganyika fish, but they seem to work real well in there and they fill up the top part of the water area.

Wow, what a lovely tank!! I am really falling fast & hard for all the amazing riptariums I've been seeing on here. This one has gotta be a fav. I've always had a soft spot for the Lake Tanganyika Cichlids. "Pembe"s always being one of my favs!
The plants are all starting to fill in very nicely too! Love the different textures, and height of the layout.
The Danios add soooo much! Looks great, all around love this tank!

I haven't been back here in a while. I was very busy with some stuff.
I have a quick update for this tank. I got it all replanted and the plants have had a couple of weeks to start to grow in. They look pretty good.
Here you can see the new Lake Inle danios. These seem like a real good "stand in" choice as a shoaling species for a Tanganyika setup. They look real good with the julies and the Synodontis.

I just pulled all of the existing plants out. I just left them in their planters and put them in the container pond that I have outside.
Here is what I am going to replant with...

That tank looked really good indeed.
