Oops, I forgot to put in the filter... lol... It's a 500gph Odyssea Canister Filter. I know everyone seems to have a bad taste left in their mouths over Odyssea products, but mine seem to be performing very nicely!!!

Here's a few pics of some fish. My favorite angel, the rams ( which had only been in there for 2 days when these were taken... so their color is still a bit faded from being stressed), and one of the hard to photograph roselines. =)

Get some moss going on that wood already! With some moss that wood would seriously look cool.

Bummer. Any plans to start it up again in the next few months? It looked like you were off to a great start.
