a few pics of my new 90 gal. MORE PICS ADDED

Ok, I posted a few pictures on my mac site of some of the progress I am attempting to make on my 90 gal startup. My signature has the components and as for my fauna, right now, I have 6 purple Danios <for cycling>, 8 otos, 2 small rubberlip plecos, 2 crystal red shrimp, one tiger and 2 amanos and about 50 Olive nerites that are multiplying so they went on a summer trip to my outdoor water feature, 4 neons <freebies for my oto order>3 green swordtails and my male Betta who the rules the roost. I have featherfin rainbows and red ones coming next week.
Anyway you can visit my very new site that I threw some pics on to view the slow and messy progress. i had my other knee operated on yesterday, so I have the scape on hold and half of my plants in containers as I took them out after cycling the tank. I will post more progress once I can walk again! Thanks for checking it out

I think it looks great so far. Nice chronology. Looks like you did a great job putting the moss and petite nana on the wood. I love petite nana on wood. It will be interesting to see how well it shows up in such a large tank.

I am dieing to see more pics of the wood in the tank and what your new scape looks like!

Thanks Robert.
I got a lot of my stuff from you ...lol
The Petite nana does get a little lost in there, so I an not sure if it will stay there or become fore to midground. The crystal reds love it up there though. I will change things around again soon so more pics will be posted for sure. I have a ridiculously high megapixel camera so it doesn't make sense to post it here, so I set up the mac site. I will let you/everyone know when I update more. Thanks for looking

I love that tank rimless I need to get one in a few months. Great looking setup looks like nothing can be done though with out the cats keeping a close eye on ya.

Great job Lynn. Those couple of pics of the tank jammed full of healthy plants looks like a terrific start! That is a killer piece of Manzanita! But I'm glad I don't have to listen to the Siamese ... LOL. I like the Matisse art too!

Beto...I took so many plants out as they all overgrew. I have them in buckets right now awaiting the chance to be either replanted or shipped out to friends, as I just had my other knee operated on , on Friday...so standing on a ladder planting is not in the cards for the next few days...lol. The manzanita seems to get lost in there, so I am trying to figure out a way to get it in there as more of a highlight. I am sure it will change several times before settling into what I deem acceptable.

Are you just trying to stir up trouble? Come on up to NYC...I will even pay to fly you up here, so I can treat you like a "slinky a la Rex" and humiliate you for being beat up by a girl.

Thanks Bob...and thanks for the plantlets. Luckily I had a chance to plant them one at a time the night before I got cut on.

Wow, that is amazing, and you must be incredibly talented. From the shot where the tank placement is, you can tell your home has a completely unique character. I think that your artwork and tank go together very well.

Enough off topic flattery I liked the shots of the growing plants, and that piece of manzanita is gorgeous. The riccia tunnel is neat, too. What are your thoughts about placement of the wood and tunnel? I will look forward to seeing it all together.

Speedy recovery on the knees. Sounds painful.

Funny....

Let see some more pictures of "your" aquarium....

chenaus, I suggest you stop accusing people of theft. Last thing you need is a gal from NYC on your case! Check that, second to last thing you need is a gal from NYC after you. Last thing you need is a gal from NJ after you!!!

I have them placed but I am not happy with it. I have the tunnel for them to swim through and it goes right into the "fingers" of the manzanita, but I am not happy with the flow. As soon as I can stand upright again <very painful>, I will change it around and post pics. Thanks Karla
