I REALLY like your background! Very creative! I had never thought about doing something like that.

Really nice plant arrangement too. Good job!

Your Crypts look fantastic. Must be that substrate additive. Are you also dosing the water column?

No dosing, just the mineralized soil kits from Ken under the flourite.

Thanks for the comment AzFishKid, I'm really happy with how its turning out.
At first when I could not get the CO2 up and running I thought trouble was around the corner but with 1/2 the T5's off things are stable and even the plants that are more demanding are growing well.

My computer is back up and running at full speed sooo,,, The latest wahoo at my house! (well in this aquarium anyway )
My Colorado F1 blacks have started pairing. I have a few bruised fish as these teenagers are really just figuring it out. The other eight are all finding the corners tonight but not sure why all the hostility.





And one full tank shot because its been awhile

The slate background looks good, I'm surprised that would work. Great tank, plants look very healthy.

I really miss my friend I've left Tim's post as the last one to this tread while updating the others as time allowed. Great of heart and a low tech king,R.I.P. I will always remember and miss Tim.

Time to update the thread.
(Terrible pictures but a tank full of life.)

Fully awful full tank shot. The DD blacks still dominate this tank. As bad as I am with a camera taking pictures of black fish is impossible. When I do get a good shot they look awful.

The fry were pulled to keep peace in the 110g.

I have 2 10g tanks full of baby plecs

Beautiful! Do you have any problems with the plecos and plants/substrate? Like digging, uprooting, eating leaves?

None but I keep them fed and happy. They, four adult females and two males munch up an entire zucchini every week (by the slice). Three small (about 4") clown loaches help out eating the veggies too.

Would you mind posting pics of your sump? I have a 100G myself and I'm thinking of taking it from Rena XP3 to a under tank sump. Your thoughts on your sump so far?

Quickest to clean, easiest to deal with filter system in my house PERIOD no complaints. There are some photos in this thread along with a build thread where I gathered information during the conversion. Mine was originally a trickle filter.
