Tank really looks great.

And regarding the pumpkins... the way those two photos are touching each other, I thought the wookie pumpkin was a giant projection on your ceiling. I didnt realize it was a different photo initially. Haha.

added 5 more rasbora H.
Shrimps are breeding like rabits
Plants are growing wild

I'm setting up another 10gallon tank for the kids. They are loving it and wanting to keep bigger fish.

Bigger fish = no shrimps =(

picture update soon to come....

Cool man! Very eye pleasing. I like scapes that use a lot of fine leaved stems and that's probably why I love yours. BTW, how is the UG doing. The glosso might soon over take the foreground. Not sure how glosso and UG fair at each other when grown together.

Patience is the name of the game.
