June's 56 column

Here is the start of my angel tank.

Ecocomplete, eheim 2217, 2x24" T5HO, eheim jager heater.

e. parviflorus, e ozelot, c.wendtii, bolbitis, L. sessiliflora, H. pinnatifida. I am adding e bleheri in the left back corner, and some jungle val in the right tomorrow. I also have some little crypts coming in a couple of weeks for around the rocks in the foreground.

There are 4 koi angels, 3 panda cories, a nerite and I just added 8 rummynose today. I plan on adding a few more rummynose, a couple more cories and a pair of GBRs. Maybe a couple of otos- the bolbitis could sure use a cleaning!

I love this forum! Plants in this tank from calfish64, Crispino Ramos and Gordon Richards, and manzanita from PC1. Panda cories and nerite from Rachel (msjinkzd). Angels from Angelsplus.



I have GOT to learn to take better tank pix. And not to feed them right before shooting. This is awful. It looks so much better in person, LOL!

Working on photog skillz. Finally got the vals although they are adjusting right now. And a baby amazon sword in the left back- I'm sure it will fill in over time, LOL! Also finally found some crypt. willisii that are perfect for the foreground- I ended up getting I think wendtii green geckos the first time I ordered some!

Without flash (colors are better but reflections are awful)



With flash. Seems to help with reflections.
