The two images that have less growth were taken in I beleive late Semptember, and the second set is from Dec 24. In both sets of images the Angelfish are defending eggs - the pair on the left is, the other pair have not yet done any laying, but do appear to be a pair. HC was originally planned for the foreground, but it failed to thrive, so I've just let it slowly fall out. I may replace it with Glosso in the new year.

Its got a bit too 'bushy' for my tastes. I liked seeing the rock in the earlier photos but they've disappeared. The plants look god and healthy though :o)

Viv, I know what you mean - I need to find a happy medium for the hygro - I want it tall enough to cover the pipes, but I would also like to see the rock formation. I'll try a more agressive pruning this week, and then see if I can get some more pics.
