Craig's 60cm ADA tank

Hey All,

Its been a month now and the tank is doing well - except for my poor little downoi maybe my SAE's have been eating it? hmmm

I have now got lots of different mosses - Xmas, peacock, weeping and two types of fissidens - growing on the wood.

Anyway, no more talking, heres the pics

Full tank shot - notice the freshly trimmed hedges of rotala green


Rotala Macranda "green"

Oh ok, I got some HC in my tank.
Not sure how it's going to go though.

I love the new look! Just gotta wait for the HC to spread

I think that the middle front piece of rock is a little too bright, or is it just the camera?

Wow...stunning. And Harlequins are my favorite fish by far. Between you and Roybot I could just stare at these 60-P's all day...if only I had an eye like that! Could you direct me to the particulars of the tank/setup?

I was about to say how bad the hardscape looked (but good plant growth), but then saw the driftwood replaced with the stones - MUCH nicer looking!

Heres some new pics after 30 days.

The rocks have been eaten by the blyxa and rotala green, but in real life you can see them well






Attempt at editing the pic - didnt turn out too good
