Shoot at night. Use a tripod, the back of a chair, or SOMETHING to hold your camera perfectly still and aligned with the vertical and horizontal centers of your tank. Turn off the flash and all lights in the room. Use the delay on your shutter release so you don't cause blur when pushing the button. If you're having difficulty focusing, try locking the focus on an object away from the tank equal to the distance between the lens and the back 1/3 or so of your tank. If you have different ambient light settings on your camera, play around with them to see if they capture better color. Good luck!

No before pics ? I love watching algae die.

Keep up the good work Warr. I think a crypt would look nice in front of all your big stems.

Stem plant do fit nicely in a 29-gallon tank. Besides crypts, you may want to consider java ferns, a compact sword or a lotus to get a broad leaf plant for contrast.

Love to see landscaping ideas with 29's. Keep'em coming.
