My 38gal. Planted Tank....(UPDATED WITH PICS NEW SCAPE 5/25/08)

This my first attempt at ever having kept a planted tank. I have been in the hobby for many years and have even kept reef tanks for several Years. This is my 38gal. planted tank. It has been set up for 3 months now and it is going crazy.

38gal. Tetras Forest.

Wow! It's either the world's most outstanding case of beginner's luck or you've really done your homework. Keep up the good work.

What's your lighting/filtration/flora and fauna?

Thank all of you for the kind words and compliments on my tank. In answer to the question is this your first tank, No. But it is my first planted tank..LOL.

My fish and other inhabitants.
12 rummynose tetras, 12 neon tetras, 10 Harlequin Rasboras, 5 Round Bared Barbs, 4 Corie Cats, 4 Botia Striatas, 4 Ottocinclus, 2 SAE's, 7 Ammano Shrimp, 25 Red Cherry Shrimp.

Wow, nice work my friend! Lovely aquascaping, well chosen plants and good use of colour. Do you get any problems with the shrimps being eaten by the other fish?

I'm jealous.

"Over the beautifully shining green pasture and in the green forest, joyously sails fish... fish.
They support each other while playing leading parts by themselves.
The picturesque scenery calms down our hearts.
In the water is there a world."

Thank you. No I have not had any problems with the fish eating the shrimp. Most of the shrimp are just to big for the fish to care.
