Might be the best incarnation yet Tom. It is really nice to see the elephant noses. I have to wonder if your lights are washing out the greens a bit.

Do you only keep a single elephant nose? What do you feed him/her?

Tank looks awesome by the way!

Reflective wash out, yes, I opted against so much red in the lighting in the past. I tried to balance with stronger blue, and 2 white bulbs(GE starcoat are by far the best white bulb available), but the red advantage is awesome.

I think it's a lot as to what you become conditioned and accustom to. I use to like 5000K bulbs, then 6500, then folks liked the 10,000K, then they went back to the red 9325's and then I'm back in the red end of things again.
I could not handle the URI red sun bulbs initially, they were too freaky, but now I use one in all the tanks.

I have 4 in here, this is the runt. The other 2 hide till you feed and another comes out every so often. At night they are all over the place.

I had more, but they picked on one runt and I'd to put him into the 180.
They eat mostly brine and crushed RCS I cull. they'd likely eat worms, but........I'd rather not.

I wish they'd eat RCS live.

They are hyper active fish, larger and high respiration rates and most people kill them in planted tanks.

Very nice. Did you change the bulbs again? It looks like there is purple and blue specials in there?

No, same for the last 3 weeks or so now.

The reflections on the wall, the outer bulbs are red already......but the bluer ones are more towards the middle. So you tend to see more red in the wall, I moved them to the outside in the past and put the reds up front and the blues in the back.

Nice look, but I'm not concerned about it, just getting max color without modifying any ferts. You can see it works. Hard to photoshop a video.

Amazing Tom. This is how they should judge planted tank contests. You can actually see the tanks as if you were standing in front of them in person and no way to add elements or bump up the colors for that dramatic impact. When a contest is judge this way is when it actually becomes more of an aquascaping contest and less of a photography competition.

I had no idea you had elephant nose in here...that's amazing. I thought they generally didn't do well with their own kind though, but I guess in a tank this size it doesn't matter?

I just had to ask, is that mini pellia growing near the top of the big stump? How hard was it to get to to stay there and what method did you use? Also, is that erio parkeri behind the Ludwigia red? How tall is it if I may, its hard for me to think of its real height as everything balances really nicely in this tank (but I want to know for my own purposes since its a plant I'm interested in :P)

This tank is the tank I think most tanks should strive to be.

That is eriocaulon compressum. Pretty cool plant that is fairly new to the hobby.
