This is a very nice read. I'm going to be getting a 135g and am planning on doing some large SA cichlids. I want to get a nice piece of driftwood and have been scouting out the local areas.

Nice. Interesting background/foreground mix with the focus. I think a little bit of editing and cropping will make this even better!

As Snow said you can go with a T8 fixture from a hardware store. I've found spectrum is just as important (if not more important) than intensity. Most of the plants you mentioned are low/medium light...

Thanks guys. I'll see if I can even get the tank. I haven't heard back from my friend.

Nice shots Aqua. If your 'crappy' camera has a video setting you could use that to film your rainbowfish. Then search it for a frame you like and pull that out. It's a good way to image quick fish.

A rubber band around the wood attaching a rock works well if the shape of the wood allows it. Then after a month or two the wood should be fully soaked and you can remove the band.

Thumbs up First Spawn! Apistogramma Viejita Sp. "Red Neck"
