i'd replace the wisteria with a thicker or heavier plant that can fill in the space better. Something with a red hue might set things off nicely.

The photo on the web of Endler Liverbearers looked nice. How tiny are they?

I am not sure if I will ever add a fish to my vase/bowls experiments. I am still looking at them every day to see if the plants are alive or dead. I am glad that I put fast growing Rotala Rotundifloria Green in them. I am watching the color of the leaves and the healthy long shoots that were branching off the side. I think I may have seen one or two tiny leaves grow near the top.

Still waiting........

How could Seachem Excel kill a plant? Although I think I remember Seachem saying something about SLOWLY... increasing dosages......

Ask them why it happened. Rusty at Seachem is the best! Not only do they know the answers, but they even speak COMMON AMERICAN ENGLISH!! (For those of us that do not have college degrees in the natural sciences.)

John N. with the screw in flourescent bulbs which wattage do we count?
The actual electricity used or the equivalent # of watts that it is supposed to be as bright as?
(lumens I guess it is called).

Actual electricity used. So if it's 20w = 75w, you have 20 watts over your tank.

Jimbo;

Endler's are the same size a guppies. They'd probably work in your small setup, but they'll probably breed so fast you'll soon be terribly overcrowded again.

Cheers.
Jim

Here's some more recent photos of the tank. I've had some issues with Green Dust Algae, and decided to let it grow out for 4 weeks to have it complete it's life cycle, and never return.

So this is what it looked like as the glass started getting covered with green.

And this is what it looks like 4 weeks later.



Some additional thumbnails:



Enjoy!

Tank is looking very nice! Did the GDA just disappear or did you let if go for the 4 weeks and then wipe it off?

Thanks, I think the tank is looking better and better as I experiment with the different types of plants and how they look. Too bad the pictures don't show how great the tank looks with the different depths of plant layers and the substrate slope. The downoi is having a grand old time in the tank, starting with 3 or 4 stems to what I have now.

The Algae had to be wiped and scraped off with a credit card after 4 weeks. It wasn't too hard, and so far nothing has reappeared on the glass.
