Here's what I have done:

I bought a 10lb bag of profile, mixed in 55 oz of laterite, and covered with 2" of fine natural gravel (not coated). making a total of about 3.5" of substrate in my 33 gallon. I have odno lighting combined with a Glo-Mat II, for a total of about :shock: 180 watts. In the tank I have Vals, Corkscrew Vals, penny wort, hygrophilia Diff. a few swords, some crypts and Sunset Hygro...also running 2 diy co2 bottles.
fish include:

5 corrys
3 angels
6 rummy nose
6 neons (soon to be replaced by cardinals)
4 ottos
1 algea eater
1 clown pleco

also planning to add some harliquin rasboras...

Any thoughts?

Yes I have some input... 3 Angels in a 33g is excessive and will lead to problems down the road. Other then that all sounds fine.

Vals and Swords, that is going to be a very crowded tank for the angels, never mind the size of it.


Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

I breed angels so am aware of how big they get. these ones are still small and am waiting for them to grow a bit and hopefully get a pair out of the 3 (koi's)

Yes, the vals are rather big, but I keep cutting out the runners and trimming the leaves when they get too tall and shade the other plants...the Swords are quite small...(Echinodorus parviflorus 'Tropica')

Picked up a 48 gallon today so will most likely be transfering everything over next weekend...the Vals should like the extra hight, and I know the angels will.
