Sorry about that. I was actually messing with the camera setting when i took those pics (also using no flash). Although my water is a bit yellow so the pics aren't that off to what it really looked like with just the 20watt florescent bulb. It always was more of a glow than a very bright light after the drift wood started turning my water into a 'mellow yellow' color.

tank looks really nice.

Although, I have to laugh, I had the same olmec head in my tank as well. Just removed it and the rest of the mayan stuff (and all fake plants) to replace it with real.

Silly PetsCo. They draw in you in for their plastic stuff.

LOL, i know what you mean. Its a good thing i decided on those first few live plants to really get me going in the right direction (got me to searching the net for more info). If it wasn't for sites like this with so much helpful information i would still be stuck with a few half dead plants and a bubbling treasure chest.

here's an old pic from when i first put them in my tank. The color has really started to come out over time and the fins have a really nice red outline.

update...




I took out one piece of the rainbow rock and some old plants. I spreadout the remaining plants and put a couple clippings of bacopa and rotala to see if they will grow well and form a better cover on the right side of the tank. Can't really see them to well in the pic but they are all planted behind the remaining piece of rainbow rock in the tank.





Here's a pic of my new filter for the 29 gal. Ehiem 2215 canister filter.


All the water in the tank is being filtered at almost 23 times and hour. Overkill.

Its been a while since i have updated so here's a semi recent pic after the tank was moved to a new location.



Plants are just starting to settle in an fill out again. Will update when it looks a little better since I'm still not to happy with the new look.

Unfortunetly the new location is next to a semi bright window so I'm starting to experience a bit of algae growth on the side closest to the window. I guess sooner or later i would have to get some experience with algae control in this tank.

I don't recommend stacking your lava/rainbow rocks on top of one another. One little push, and a fish could be crushed.
