Scape looks great. What kind of light is that? What filter are you using?

The light is an AquaticLife 30" model with 2 bulbs, a GE 6500K Starcoat and an AquaticLife 10,000k (did not come with lamp)

Filter is a SunSun filter, I forget what the GPH is but it's alot, the water current is strong.

Update, nothing new. Just letting the plants grow in and fill out before I do the next trim.

Wow what a gorgeous tank! No critiques other than more red! I see your plants grow sideways like mine do as well with the AL T5 fixture - I wish they made bigger bulbs so the plants didn't have to grow sideways to get to the light.

I thinnk the colorata is starting to turn more and more red! Fingers crossed!

More pictures! The black neons are actually very pretty, they have a bright red patch above their eyes and their horizontal white stripe is very very bright! Also their dorsal fins have turned a shade of red and their bottom fins are yellow! Very cool! The next ones are my sparkling gouramis that I THINK is a pair, not positive, if someone can sex them that'd be great! Hydrocotle grew in really fast now that it's gotten established!

Trim trim trim trim time!~ The back left hand corner is still lagging but it's coming.

BTW the colorata was bright red before I trimmed it! I should've taken a pic but I forgot! Next time!

I'm going to be bringing home a Digital SLR next week so I will try to have everything set to have some "professional" pictures done. :P

How're you liking that light? I think I'll be using the same one. Does it seem like enough or to much?

And what'd you use for substrate?

Your tank looks wonderful! I love the balance and the choice of fish you selected.

I have kind of an old question, but curious if you had ever added ferts to the spray water during the dry start? If so, do you remember what and how much you added?
