Updated pics from today (I added 50 tiger barbs a few minutes ago so most are hiding).

My favorite seat in the house. Fireplace in the back makes it even better.

Had a few minutes before heading out so here is a quick video of the tank. Water is a bit cloudy since I did a major water change earlier in the day. Plants are finally starting to grow ever since I lowered the light closer to the surface. I was having major melt issues for the first 2-3 weeks but new shoots are coming out all over the place. Tiger barbs are doing great! Just today I also added a few red and albino bristlenose plecos from a forum member here. Tank continues to be very low maintenance with no daily fertilization. A weekly 50% water change does the job and that takes less than 20 minutes. Lights are on from 1pm to 11pm coinciding with the co2. Next goal will the to put some type of emersed plants on top of the driftwood. At the moment a couple of leaves from my anubias nana petite are starting to come through the water on the driftwood.

Enjoy, let me know what you think. Be sure to set the video to High Definition before you watch it.

Thanks for the compliments all. A few more months and the tank will really start coming together.

Oh man awesome job!

Missed the thread until now, super nice work on the tank. Subscribed.

I only wish I was allowed to have one of these in my living room.

I like how your chair is positioned in the middle of the living room facing the tank and away from the TV :P
