That looks sweet as heck Kiran!...did I spell it right this time? I thought it was looking a bit messy for a while, but man this looks great after this last trim. Toss some Fire Reds in there. Cheap, looks great, pops against the green...and you won't be too bummed if they don't make it.

As long as you have a pic...you can always enter a competition later.

Thanks Howard! Yep, you got it! I too thought it was messy, which is why I contemplated the idea of tearing it down and restarting, but boy, am I glad that I kept it up!

I don't think that I'll go with PFRs, mostly because I keep them in all of my other tanks... I kind of want to toss it up and take advantage of the fact that I can house a new type of shrimp in this tank.

And good point on the photos for contests. Right now I'll be focusing on making the scape even better so I can get the best, most accurate photos of the tank in its prime as possible.

Very nice! If it were me, I'd get a school of 6 or so microrasporas for that tank, I bet they'd look amazing. Or maybe look for the perfect betta to compliment the tank... Maybe a wild-type betta?

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

I hate to say it, but I am realyl not a fan of that background. It's too flat for my liking, not enough depth.

Thank you! I'm still unsure of whether I'll even get fish for it, but microrasboras are a possibility

I think that some of that may be because I didn't take the filter out, and simply used iPhoto's repair tool to get rid of the filter intake after the fact... Lol . It made the colors really smooth and flat on the background.

Wow, thanks! Your tanks were an inspiration to me when I was just starting out a few years ago!
