As I have said before, I really like the look of the substrate in that tank. Plecos are nice. What's the tall grasslike plant in the 3rd pic?

Looks alright to me, too much stem and root plants. Don't like the substrate much, IMO eco-complete would look better. Java fern seems to be looking good.

I love the substrate in this tank, its very natural looking. Eco looks like something from outer space.

Your fish look nice and healthy too.

Thanks guys. Well eco-complete is extreamly hard to source here. Plus I'm a cheap person! So I went the cheap way. I love the substrate!!!

Thanks guys,

Joel

Tanks looks good to me. I love that second shot of the pleco. Is that a 'Golden Nugget'? How big does that guy get?

Nope they don't and that is a GN pleco. I think it only reaches 5" or so.

I like the look, but i agree too many long stem plants. The substrate is superb too. One of my favorites. Pea gravel.

The rubbernose pleco is looking good too.
