Your welcome. What plants do you have in there?
I have no idea about the plants' names, to be honest.

i used to have a bunch more that i bought from a lfs, but ALL of them melted/died due to lack of skill on my part. so what's left are the 'easy' plants i guess.. the tank has 2 8w cfl. no co2. no ferts (or very little fert dosing - i have a bottle of liquid fert that i squirt in there maybe once a month). minimum care. i don't even do weekly WC anymore.



nice setup! I always like the "peppered" look on white sand
thanks! those peppers are ada substrates that was 'carried' by the snails. i can spot 2 types of snails in the tank - originates from plant hitchhikings.

thanks for checking out my tank, FORREST3320.

Here's a photo I took from the top,back.

My fish are afraid of my shadow whenever I go over to them, they'd hide
behind the bushes.

I really like the rocks with the sand. what kind of rocks are those? when the plants in the middle grow taller, your fish will probably feel a little more comfortable around you with the extra places to hide. I've had that issue with a shoal of carinal tetras. takes time but they should adjust.
Thanks Fat Guy. I have no idea what kind of rocks these are as well. I found them at my hometown's waterfall area.

Do you think it will look better if the plants at the middle grow taller? I was only planning to have them half-tank high. At the moment I am still trimming them real low and replanting that space - it is not fully planted yet.

Its a good setup.

Thanks Rony11, and cheers for the plant ID. it is a bit messy at our lfs, all plants, and fish don't even have any name labels.

i like your rockscape. are you using a mixed substrate? fluval stratum + PFS substrate perhaps?


- thefisherman
Thanks thefisherman. No mixed substrate. It is just Amazonia ADA Substrate. That's all. The tank has undergone several rescapes (it's been about 1 year old now).

Thanks all for checking out my tank! :)

Some of those tetras look like neons to me. The red doesn't go the whole length of the body like cardinals. Or do you have neons as well?

Yes, you are right TheKribKeeper.

There are actually a mixture of green neons (just 2 i think), neons, and cardinals, and rummynose, plus a few guppies.
