Thank youLooks great! Well done!!
Yeah that has gotten more exaggerated as the ferns have grown out, really ought to do that soon!I like it was well!
May I offer a suggestion.....move the light closer to front of aquarium and
It won’t show as big of a dark area in the front.
Good idea, yeah those rocks get knocked about quite a bit during WC and all that, will try to arrange them a bit more like that actually next time thanks for the input.Hi andrewss, tank is looking great!!
If I may also offer a suggestion.. I'm not sure if it was your intention, but the smaller detail rocks in the foreground are spaced too evenly apart. IMO this makes it look unnatural. If you bunch up some of the bigger rocks and smaller fragments, it should look more natural. An example is shown below, in the centermost sandy area:
So, not much of an update for the scape or plants (really really need to trim and spot treat algae). More on that later.
However last week, or was it the week before last... lol I had another GBR spawn, the first one in a while that survived the first night after laying. So my male became really aggro to everyone in the tank after this one and especially to the GBR female, he never let her come close to the nest. Anyway a few days later the fry started to swim a bit free and I called a local breeder over to take the fry home to grow them out since I dont really want to myself nor have the spare tank for that. To do so we had to net the male to get to the eggs and right when the female sees him out of the tank before we know it she darted to the nest and started eating the babies! She ate probably nearly half the fry before I could net her out.
Luckily there were still quite a few fry left, the breeder got like 50-75 or so fry in the end. Yesterday he sent me a little update, the are lookin good and newly placed in a 30L cube tank to grow out some more! Curious to see how they look in the next weeks!
