Looking nice! I like the open area. Good example of concave layout!

I REALLY LIKE it.

Personally I woul dlet it sit for a while before I did anything else. Let it grow in some and see how you like it. I really like the balance it has right now and I don't think you really need to put anything in the open rear are. Good or bad the poster really gives it a great sense of depth.

That's beautiful....

I really really really like your use of rocks in that aquascape. I'm not usually one for the "rock stream" look, but the hairgrass in front obscures the line enough to make it very natural looking. Great job.

This is a non-plant related question, but I am curious as to what the fish is in the second pictture from the original post. He/She looks very nice in a planted environment.

Welcome Kherman! Glad to have you.

I beleive the fish you are referring to is a Boesemans Rainbowfish. They have some awesome color if you get them from the right breeder.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I am now doing a search for more info on these fish. I have volumes 1-3 of Baensch at home, so I'll look more into them when I get home. Is there any good online source for rainbowfish you are aware of?

And thanks for the warm wlcome

The best I am currently aware of is RareFishAtLAX on aquabid. I have gotten my fish from an associated dealer and they were awesome. They are all related to the Rainbow Study Group which guarantees great quality and purity. Many of their species are very rare and make great collections.
