Hello APC! It has been a long, long time since I've been able to share a pic of a healthy tank with you guys. Since last summer I've dealt with BBA, spirogyra, a protracted case of green water, a move that killed many of my most sensitive species, and very little time or patience to get things back on track.

Finally, I can present a (nearly) healthy aquascape! It isn't really anything fancy, but I'm trying to keep it simple this time and hopefully start having more successes than failures:)

Looks like a great start. Great variety in species too. Can't wait to see it once it grows in

Here is an update, the tank has managed to morph into an actual aquascape of sorts:


I want to expand the erio 2 area, and there is some Bacopa salzmanii on the right side that can't be seen in the photo. That, and the right side turned into Erio goias storage, but I hope to change that soon...

Sure, it is a 40 breeder 36x18x16.
Lit by 2x55 watt PC bulbs using AHS reflectors, lifted about 4 inches off the surface.
Substrate is Aquasoil.
Filtered by an XP3, CO2 is run through a Mag 3 pump. Both the pump and filter have their own spray bar running across the full width of the back.
Ferts are a little less than EI, about 15ppm NO3 and 2.5ppm PO4 weekly.

This is beautiful .. the transitions and all are very good, but somehow IMO the tank lacks a focal point ..some ammania Gracilis or Limnophila Aromatica at the center background would be eye catching and focal point...
