Psybuster's 29 Gal - Updated 10-05-05

After taking the advice of you guys and putting the koi in the pond. I have changed my tank around in a matter of 3 days. I'm trying for the jungle look, but not where it's all crazy and stuff. So it looks fairly organized at the moment, just need to wait for my new microswords to spread out. I have 4 Angels, 2 Cory Cats, and 1 Rainbow Shark. I want to add some cherry shrimp, that would make things a little more lively.



The Angels





The Rainbow Shark



The Cory Cats





Tell me your thoughts/suggestions.

yes it's red flourite, it has a black background, but it's just poster board that i taped on the backside of the aquarium tank.

Specs are:
29 Gallon Tank
100 watt fluroscent light
Hagen CO2 (Pressurized in the future)
Filstar XP2
HOB Filter

definitely more lively-- you'll get to watch the angel and shark's hunting habits, and shrimp escape tactics (which don't really work in a small, enclosed aquarium)

plants are looking really good I do think the colored gravel takes away from the plants it draws your eyes to it instead of the plants just my 2 cents
