b3, I adore your woods. You must have tons of them down there. What about me bringing some snow to trade?

This is really a Gallery for plants or finished tanks! I think this should be moved to the aquascaping or general forum...

Nice tank!

vicki: its not a particular brand...erm...just a simply glass tank with dimensions of 5ft x 18in x 18in. I have seen some jebo and eheim ones though...they are very nice...

jpmtotoro: thanks...

birgit: they're on their way...hehe..

Robert: Sorry for the post in the wrong forum... At the old AB site, i was told to post similar pics in there...



Update:
Here is the lastest pic of the tank. Its 1 day old... I only got half the e. tenellus i ordered so the foreground is a bit sparse.. I am also going to get some more plants for the darker areas under the driftwood branches on the right hand side. Thinking of crypts or various anubias.


*thanks james for hosting the pic for me...


Let me know what you think!

Agreed with the others: the tank's off to an awesome start. The trick will be in keeping the plant growth from overwhelming the aesthetics of the driftwood, which are masterfully positioned! I think crypts would look great under the branches, and specifically C. lutea would look nice in the central area underneath and in front of the arch. But this is your tank--I can only fantasize about having a nice, big tank and wicked cool pieces of driftwood to work with!

Thanks for the nice words guys..

Moe/2la: Great minds think alike...hehe...i am thinking about putting crypts there also. C. lutea would be perfect, but I am quite limited with the varieties that are available here.. I will try though...


Some notes:
There are two colour varities of E. stellata located in the background on the right hand side (green and purple). The colours of the purple plant have changed dramatically!!! Its a real deep purple/burgundy shade...totally different from what it was in my tank (MH lighting). The R. macranda that I bought from the lfs was also green initially, but i can now see new growth, and the colours are going to be awesome. I think its the NEC HG lights (it looks purple/blue) that I am now using...
