Always helps to start with good subject matter, so you already got that going for you.

IMO, those pics came out very, very well. It's always more difficult when they are very small like that.

And that is a very good looking fish.....great markings and color.

One tip.....notice how you can see yourself holding the phone in the first pic. Helps to have no ambient light in the room other than tank light. It will reduce reflections like that.

Almost forgot.....plants are looking pretty darn healthy too! Good to have you back.

Thank you. It's good to be back. And thanks for the tip! I didn't even think about that or notice the reflection until you pointed it out, but makes sense. I'll remember to cut the lights next time.

Will do. Speeding time researching tank sizes, substrates, styles..... A lot to learn.

Tank is still coasting along pretty well.

It's the lowest maintenance setup I've kept. Moderate light and CO2, Osmocote balls under each plant grouping, occasional dose of Flourish Comprehensive, water change every other week with 50/50 RO-tap. That's about it.

Plants are doing OK considering. Some algae here and there, but no major issues.

Some pics from tonight.

Got some new plants from @burr740 today - Blyxa octandra, Hygrophila siamensis 53b, and Penthorum sedoides (all in the back left corner). Gorgeous plants. Really excited to see how they do. Otherwise not a whole lot going on with the tank aside from a few fish additions here and there. Cheers everyone.
