Thanks guys!

Unfortunately the Centromochlus reticulatus weren't shipped out yesterday due to bad weather conditions in Denver. They should be shipped out sometime today and will arrive tomorrow afternoon.

I like the wood bare too. I think it has enough personality on it's own. Tank looks really nice!

Here's an updated photo.
I've been getting some algae (diatoms, rhizoclonium, GSA, and BGA), which is strange because those are the exact types of algae that i got in my 60P when i was using the same buffered RO/DI water... but i've never had rhizoclonium nor BGA when using tap?! I don't get it.

Anyway, algae issues aside, the tank is doing pretty well. Right now i just have 2 otocinclus and 10 yellow shrimp in there. I hope to get a school of chili rasboras soon. I would also eventually like to get some Limnophila vietnam 'mini' to fill in the remaining gaps between the rocks and the background plants/driftwood.

Some staurogyne would look cool in the middle of the left or right sides of the tank. It'd be a good Segway ink the background from the foreground.

Beautiful tank! I say leave the wood bare.
Do you have those little cats yet? Those are probably the cutest fish I've ever seen! Now I want some. They look like they're smiling!

Thanks Jenny! Yeah i decided to keep the wood bare. I think it looks best that way. Thanks for your feedback.
Yup, i got them last Friday. I posted some info/pics on my 90G Riparium journal. Let me know what you think!

These really are awesome fish; they were worth every penny. But man, i had to pay a small fortune to get them shipped from Montreal to Phoenix!

What's the plant in the back? The red one... Is it the Colorata?

Yup, Rotala 'colorata'. Unfortunately it's not holding its color too well in my tank but it still looks nice.

Colorata didn't work out in my tank either for some reason, but I got some of the Mini Butterfly version, and it's doing great.
