The UVS is overhead.







This is what the tank eats weekly


I am not an aquascaper and don't claim to be, but I do enjoy simply growing weeds underwater.

Wow, the tank looks awesome...vibrant colors! And the finnage on the A.cacu is stunning, did you get it locally?

I really like the look of your tank. What variety/species? of Tonina is that in the front left and is that Ponageton gayi in the back? Do you have any plans to fill in that area in the foreground? Just wondering even though I hardly notice it with how great everything looks around it.

Also, what a great idea for your aquascaping tools and cleaning stuff. Great way to reduce the clutter look.

Yes, very nice, one of the more colorful tanks I have seen. I don't agree with your statement saying you are not an aquascaper ; how could you improve on that layout? I would love to have such a tank in my living room.

By the way I have been reading some of your posts regarding dosing and would like to say thanks; you have helped me a lot.

Wow. A great look. I love the selection of plants you have in there.

And, I'm gonna have to steal the idea of adding some hooks into the front door of my cabinet. Looks like the same cabinet I have. I've never liked just stuffing my nets and such along the front floor of my stand. Good idea !

Tank looks great. Nice looking log you have there, also...might have to alter mine to look like that (yours is much easier to read ).

BTW, that's a great looking A. agassizzi. Is that a lone male you have or part of a trio/harem?

Nice! I like the E. stellata behind the driftwood. What's beginning to fill in on the foreground on the mid-right?

You're right, our tanks are machines!

Re-boot!

Hello bellisb925
Thank you, Your to kind Raul is correct that is Tonina/Belem.
The P.Gayi is a very nice weed, it turns a dark amber color and pearl's like mad, a stunning plant! the bare spot in front, isn't really completely bare, it is "suppose to be growing HC, but having a tough time keeping planted, it is so small, and my curious Yoyo loach's will not leave it alone, little booger's are alway's digging it up.
Thanks for the post.

Thank you jart, the plant's just grow so fast, it's a continuous thing, alway's changing, but that's ok too.
Your welcome, I am glad the post's concerning dosing has helped you, anything I can do to make things easier on another is alway's nice
Anything else I can do for you, just ask.

Yup, A.agassizzi is what my LFS owner told me, I got him when he was just a pup, he has really grown into a beautiful colorful species.
He said that it was an A.agassizzi Double Red.

Nice tank, the ram really stands out to me. Actually rams are like the first things I notice in planted tanks since i'm so deeply attached to them.

Since you asked, BSS are my initials. When I first started working for IBM 20+ years ago, my officemate signed everything with his initials. I thought it was cool, so I borrowed that idea also . Tomorrow, I will likely be looking for suitable hooks and possibly even a small, hanging basket to hold foods and premixed ferts, too!
