There we go! I was wondering when the tank shots would come in. That looks great! I really like the design of that stand. Very clean looking, espcially for using all 2x4s!

Are you planning on leaving a large open area with all the plants on your little driftwood island? Or will you fill in the right side also?
Not sure if I will add plants to the right side later but right now I like the look of the open area gives the fish a open spot to swim without going threw plants
That is one sexy scape! I really like that
Decide to put my anubis mother plant in the tank for now till I decide what to do with it

Well this morning we had a death my German blue ram , my yoyo loach wouldnt leave him alone and stressed him to much and took a big bite from him . He will be missed
Nice setup, I like your driftwood placement. Any plan to add co2?
Not planning on co2 I like to keep it simple , I have had good luck with growth with out it I do dose micros and macros and exell every once and a while
Well since my german blue ram died I am in need for a new kinda fish and suggestions for my tank layout what would be a good fish ?
Yeah let's see them! :D
