Ingenious! I love how that piece of driftwood with plants on it resembles a tree. I really like the depth you created with your aquascape, the mix of shade, driftwood and plants is excellent.

I must agree with that driftwood. It's pretty sick. It does have this nice eerie feeling to it. Lonely but not so lonely.

I was wondering the same thing. The plants look real nice and the driftwood sets it off. But is it the lighting or is there a little GW going on?

whats gw guys? I also have a problem, my tank only has 40lbs of normal gravel which sucks , and i just bought 4 bags of eco complete. So now i want to change it but i dont know what i should do, o alsoi dont have any other tanks that have cycled water in it.
i have 50 fish in the tank, do i take all the fish out?
could i run big hang on filters and leave the fish in?

GW = Greenwater algae. It's a unicellular algae that is suspended in the water coulmn and makes the water looks hazey with a green tint. It can be eliminated with a UV sterilizer, a diatom filter or a lot of daphina.

sNApple,

What T5's are those? I just put a new screw-in GE CF in my little tank, and all of my pictures look green like yours, but in person, there is no green tint. My other tanks are around 6500K color and show no green in the pictures.
