Hi Dennis Quaresma,
I like your tank. I think you did a good job on the hardscape and your plants look nice and healthy. A suggestion might be to add some finer leaf plants for a different texture and/or a plant with some red as an accent.

Let the Ludwigia grow taller and flow with the Valisneria. Basically just let everything fill in and move the co2 out of sight. Killer scape!

I like it! I want to see how it fills in. You might want to add a small touch of red in your plant scape but other than that i think it looks great. I also love the pleco. you have for your avitar!!

Love your pleco! Is that a king tiger?

I see your L. Guinea. That plant looks really amazing when it's bound by green ones. I'm wondering if it's amazing color just might get lost in your black background?

gravy9,

Thanks!

Tex Gal,

Plecos are difficult to ID but i'm almost sure it's a L333 Hypancistrus sp.

I thought about that, but i think that when the Luds be in a greater number they will be more noticeable, time will show that, let's wait.

See you!
