That is coming along. I look forward to seeing it a little more grown in. Why don't you like the flying fox? I have never had one but they seem so cute.

yeah, it's coming along. That's a month's growth. I'm afraid the light levels are too low but the rotala behind the big rock cropping is growing sideways so I'm thinking that's good enough.

As for the flying fox, don't get them. They are a terror. You can't have more than one in a tank. The dominant one will harass the weaker one and will attack almost any fish in its territory. It plays nice with the botia though, not sure why.

Even though it's cute, it hides most of the time.

Very nice, the low angle rocks look very natural!
This will be another nice tank to follow along as it matures.

Those rocks are amazing. Did you collect them locally, too?

I got lucky with the rocks. I visited a few local landscaping rock shops and found these rocks.

That tank is going to look really good once it fills in. The rock formation looks like a mountain range.

update on this tank.
I've added fish.
Stock List:
7 danio sp. Burma/TW02 (1 got his eyeball sucked out, gruesome but alive)
6 r. hengeli
6 DANIO Species "Northern Glowlight"
3 d. choperae
6 Puntius shalynius (not sure what it is really. Maybe I have all females)
5 botia histrionica
1 flying fox
2 rubber lip pleco
1 cherry barb
1 rummy nose tetra

They're not colorful fish by any mean but most are schoolers and stay together.




this is where all of the bigger fish spend the day. They come out when the lights are off. And they are not friendly to the hair grass if you can see.

I love everything about it except the two cords in the middle. It takes away from the wicked hardscape. Just an opinion. Feel free to ignore me, mistergreen.

oh I agree... when this has grown in the way I want it, I'll remove all the junk and take a picture of it. But in the meanwhile, they're there for the sake of function.

That's looking great--what a cool fish picture.

I can't remember is that Echinodorus quadricostatus? It looks like it. I have some of that and it is my new favorite low-tech plant.

Function over form is the most important when it comes to fish health. Just had to rib you a bit.
