Kiran, your spec is looking AWESOME. Take out that drop checker and it'll look even cleaner. @1bps you're not going to kill anything....so I don't think you have to worry...unless you come home and see your bubble counter going crazy.

Yeah, it was quite interesting getting it trimmed that way. I always do love scapes leading to one corner and the shape of this tank lends well to it. Fish should be here today -- will post pics. Also, this tank has been set up since August (my bday present) but I just rescaped it to look like this a week or two ago. Since I added the Fluval Ebi light on Saturday, some of my red plants are turning, well, red

I got rid of the neons I had in it last night (brought them to LFS) to make room for the endlers that Somewhatshocked gave to me for just the price of shipping!

New pics now that the new fish are in -- unfortunately I could not get any pics of them, they're just too fast. And skittish, having just been put in their new home.










I'm thinking about getting some Downoi for the right side of the tank, what do you guys think?

Yeah I know, sorry. Assumed it would fix it for me, but I'm too lazy to do it myself now. It's a good pic though
