I like the different shapes and colors of leaves, definately brings your attention in to the scape, and keeps your interest.

Working on setting up my 75G after a few year break thanks to a house flood.

thanks

all of my tanks are pretty low maintenance, the usual java ferns, moss and crypts. Sometimes, hornworts can be used as interesting feature other than nutrients sucker!

Very nice! The growth of the e. tenellus and ferns are especially impressive. Are these shots of the same tank at different times or different tanks completely?

Very wild, yet clean. Tough to pull off. Well done . Your rasboras are beauties.

These are shots of the same tank but at different tank, i have a itchy hands, rescaping every 2 or 3 months

The 1st tank was one of my beginner set up, it was terrible looking until the balansaes and ferns grew bigger. I had it for 4months.

Yup, entered the AGA 04. It was a good experience and nice to hear Amano commenting on my tanks!

^ That tank has so much depth, and the way the cardinals pop against the plants is amazing.

hi Thanks,

Amano is one of the 3 or 4 judges in AGA competition 04. I think he comments on all the tanks there.

Hey scalare altum, that's too much a flatter. I will be bloated! According to Amano's comments, its lousy!

I love the chocolate gouramis. Have you had good success with them? Beautiful tank!

thanks!

Chocolate gourami is a difficult fish to have! I had more then 10, but the pecking left 3 winners alive.

I've been trekking and bashing a little in Malaysia. Caught chocolate gouramis in so far 2 locations. Some even as small as 2cm. But of course, i didnt bring the baby home. I notice a different patterns in their anal fins compared to those i have. Probably due to locations.
