Whoops, that's what I get for trying to fast forward to the pictures, haha. Thanks! Do you find that the fish and shrimp have enough room? Do the pristella tetras school or shoal with the neons?

Lol, cheater.

THe fish and shrimp have plenty of room since the fish swim and the shrimp are usually on the bottom of on the wood or plants but they dont interfere with each other until its feeding time. The shrimp go crazy for my fish food.

all the fish school school except the neons, they usually hide on the bottom in the back. I am thinking about getting a few more so they will feel more protected in a school.

I removed the two stones I had in the middle to give me more real estate for planting.





Do you think I need to trim the Xmas Moss? Anyone?

Hey man thanks a lot for the compliment. Yes it has been a work in progress. I realized after awhile that I like a more of a jungle look than the simple Amano look with all low cut plants, I think its too boring like that or maybe I get bored fast, lol. Thanks for lurking. More to come.

I am selling some of my Red Ludwigia Sp. in the swap and shop for $2 each since you can see they are growing out of control and rapidly. If your interested in a few stems let me know.
