I think your tank looks great. I think you should keep the background. It really pops out the colors of the plants. Thats just me though. And I have a background on my reef tank all my friends give me crap about.

How do you like the stand? I was looking at the same one last night at Target for my 4 gallon Finnex.

BTW, great looking tank.

The stand is perfect for this tank. And I'm sure it'd be great for anything smaller as well. It's pretty cheap too, granted you have to drill your own holes for it, I'd say that's a small price to pay haha.
And thanks for the kind words about the tank. I'm dealing with a green water bout, but it seems to be in recession at the moment! *fingers crossed!*

Taking another chance and adding some guys to this tank. As of late everything has been steady. Been going so for a couple weeks now. Cleanup crew consists of a pair of Otos.
I got rid of a lot of the R. wallichii and as much as I love the plant I'm still considering getting rid of it altogether. I'm going to try to get a 40 breeder going sometime soon, I think it would be much more fitting in a bigger tank like that. The Hydrocoytle is spreading well, if the stems get to high I just snip them off. I still love how that meshes with the UG in here, it's tough to convey in pictures how well it looks and the actual contrast there is between the greens of the two. That being said, the UG is actually getting on my nerves. It's growing TOO well. And the worst part is that from the one time I trimmed it, I'm STILL finding leaves floating. Even after I've thought I got all of them, I'll wake up and find a ton of them floating against the sides of the glass. Quite a pain haha. Here are a few pictures I took tonight, hope you enjoy!


Great addition to any tank

Almost done with the rescape! As you can tell, I didn't end up using the Ohko Stones I ordered, and went ahead and used the ones I originally used in this tank. I've got three plants in here so far, and need one to complete it! The plant list is as follows:
Glossostigma elatinoides
Hemianthus micranthemoides
Helanthium tenellum


I still have to find some Hemianthus callitrichoides to complete the scape. I'm planning to stock it with some CRS/CBS, maybe also a small school of fish. So far there is no plan for any stems in here, but it's a tank, we all know plans change. Anyways, snapped a quick few for now, here they are:

Trimmed on Sunday, these pictures are from last night. Just a few more spots left for the plants to fill in, the trimming is constant on the Glosso, and the HM is starting to stand out like I'd hoped. It's hard to see in the pics I'm posting here, but I added a decent amount of Anubais nana 'petite' in the crevices of most of the rocks.

Nice tank and setup. Personally, I hate aqua-soil. I used it in my mini-l and it gave me too much problems.

After looking at the previous pictures of this tank, it looks like I'll have to take a hacksaw to this!
