29g Evolution

I didn't see an intro thread so I figured what better way to make an entrance then to show off my tank.

I've only been fish keeping for a few months but I'm proud of how far I've comme.

Here is the evolution of my 29g. What do you think?

First set up and still cloudy from the sand.

Jave Fern, Java Moss, Ludwigia, and Anubias

Moved the Jave Fern to the back

Added some river rocks, and moved the DW to try and add some height to the tank.

Moved the river rocks to look more natural

LOL, this was a mess. I had to take out everything in the tank to get all that moss out.


I quit being lazy and decided to tie down the anubias, java moss/fern. I added another piece of DW, some Anacharis and a black background. I also took out a large qty of rocks. This is what the tank currently looks like. I also upgraded the lighting from 14w to 64w.
What do you think?

Dang, 43 views and not one post. No love?

It might not be much but I've put a lot into it. Oh well....if it sucks it sucks.

Oh I hadn't seen the latest "do"! I really like watching tanks progress like this.

I'm not liking that one rock in the last pic that's on the right leaning up against the glass... it draws my eye in a distracting way?

I also still prefer groupings of 3s and 5s with rocks rather than just a single here and there...

The plants have been growing in nicely though- good work!

Oh don't take that personally. This forum has tons of "lurkers" who don't ever post, plus it's past "prime time" for most of the active members (9pm to midnight IME)

No worries, just looking for a sympathy compliment. You know I'm a attention whore.
