Video of my 180 Gallon Cardinal tank
 
I added it in my journal, this is my first youtube upload.
Sorry, the sound was cranked up to the highest setting, listen to some Louis Armstrong jazz or something.

I love it! its one thing to see your amazing pictures, but the fish reacting to their surroundings and your movements adds a whole new dimension.

thanks for sharing!

Awesome video! And very nice choice of background music. BTW Satchmo is very cool, lol!

I'll try and do a few more in the coming weeks and improve upon them.

Nice tank bro.. I like the idea of going with only one type of fish species, it makes things look more natural and peaceful looking with the combination of plants rather than several random fish.

Plants look green and lush... good attack with the tree effect with the plant up top too. :proud:

That's a very peaceful video and I could watch that tank all day, the music selection helped too.

Title made me miss my Cardinals. Watched video. Music made me sad about missing my Cardinals.

Beautiful fish, manzi, and plants. Thanks for posting.

"Longing for Cardinals" perhaps?

Moonlight sonata is also a bass part adapted by Stu Hamm, that's why I chose it.

Something about the way they school, mixed with their color of course. I've tried other "schooling" fish but none seem to compare. The above comment about them shifting with your movement nails it.

Looks great Tom! I rarely see anyone use a madagascar lace plant in scapes anymore. What's the temperature average in that tank?

I love how you left the wood exposed to show off it's character and not covered in moss. Who made the tank?

Glasscages, I was none too pleased about the glass edge work and awful cuts.
It's made well and will last/not leak etc, but that's about all I can say for their workmanship.

I'll sell the tank/stand combo for 900$ when I move.
Keeping everything else though.
