cool, how do you get that white background look?
is there a white poster board back there or some light shining on it?

dafil 10-01-2011 02:40 PM

It is a white poster on the wall behind.Just for the picture.

Nice setup. What is the foreground plant. Also, did you consider scaping the substrate a little bit. I've always liked it when you have a bit of a slope to lead the eye to the central piece. Or maybe I'm just channeling my inner Amano.

Love the branches, do you think you'll put any moss on them?

dafil 10-02-2011 04:23 PM

foreground plant is HC.I finished the soil-can not scaping
Moss on branches-it is too trycky for me

The staurogyne and helferi are too big for the tank, and make it look dis-preportioned. Maybe over time it will grow smaller leaves if you increase the light wattage. The tank does have a natural feel though.

Looks great. What fauna do you plan on putting in there?

Looking good in the neighborhood. But seriously I really like the scape.

Didiplis and R.Indica can`t show their redish colour ,even after I go back to 23w.Since 2 weeks I am trying to keep NO3 under 10ppm-hope this will help

Nice looking tank! Everything about it looks good.

Wow, I love your tank. What did you use for the background? The bright yellow-orange makes the tank look really warm and homely!
