So I need some opinions, what would you guys think of some Anubias nana 'narrow leaf' or nana 'petite' among the larger rock structure?

Believe it or not a Nikon D5100 with the stock lens. No macro lens, the only lens I own is the one that came with the camera. I was surprised by how good they came out as well, especially since I dont really know what I'm doing. That was pretty much as large as I could get them though without it being unable to focus or needing to be cropped. Shots were taken in manual mode with auto-focus on the lens.

And I will pm you, that's one of the mosses I was looking for! Mini xmas was first choice, xmas was second

Looks awesome. Not so crazy about the dry start with the helferi in there though. That stuff is so finicky, I am not sure it will transition well. But hey, you continue to amaze me with what you pull off in that tank, so go for it!

An BTW, 1982 called, they want their wallpaper back.

Silly Glenn! Yeah I wouldn't try a dry start with Cyperus either, which is why I didn't . If I did, somehow I managed to create CO2 bubbles that fail to disperse in our atmosphere and deserve a noble prize in chemistry and physics! And thanks a bunch for the kind words




Taken a few hours ago , tank was filled with water on the 13th of this month

Ammonia is already on the decline. Growth is strikingly fast, the Cyperus already has new roots that are over 5" long. Time to start pondering fauna.

I was thinking either 50-60 Rasbora brigittae, or 30-40 Harlequins. Leaning towards the Boraras, and it wouldn't even be a contest if they weren't so damn small. Clean up crew will consist of 10-20 Amanos and 4-5 Ottos.



Or

boraras for sure.
i used to have b. maculatus and loved them. preffer b. brigittae and b. merah color though, but my LFS didnt have any.
they school tightly, and they are smaller so you can get more. with schooling fish, the more you get the better they all look. with 25 i saw nice schooling, with 50 you should have some very nice behavior from them.

Just hit up my LFS, they had 1 Borara. Even smaller than I expected them to be, had them place an order for 60. Look who showed up in my tank, buggers are doing a real good job de-planting! 10 Amanos and 4 ottos, the Amanos are actually significantly larger than the ottos! They kicked up a couple melted stems of HC that didn't make it through the melt phase and transition from emmersed to immersed. They're also tossing and turning the Aquasoil like it's their job, the front dirt line is no longer perfect. They're a bit too big, had I known I would have waited another week... I just hope they don't do too much damage. I'm feeding them as much as I can so they take it easy. I need a macro lens. One week FTS coming tomorrow.

They like the cave, at one point there were 6 of them packed in there!

Thanks. Yeah when I saw them lined up in the cave like that I had to get some pictures.

Well, I'm having a little too much fun with the new Nikon, not sure how much longer I can go without a macro lens Looks like I'll be shelling out some cash soon!
Feeding the amanos to keep them from destroying everything worked, they're now chilling in hiding instead of romping around scavenging for something to gobble on.
