Looks great, John!

Really nice job with the 55G. Most folks find them on the narrow side, but you have done a fantastic job making it look nice and deep!

Thanks Mike. Hopefully some time in the not to distant future I'll get a wider tank, as the 55 gallon's depth really limits alot you can do with it.

Very nice!!

May I ask you how you keep your Limnophilia so red? Is there a secret to it? Mine seems to be staying bright green.

I really don't think there is a trick to getting it red, I keep po4 levels at 2ppm consistently though.I also have it another tank with a lot less light and it has a red hint to it, but nowhere near as red as this tank.So I think high po4 combined with high light helps alot.
