This tank at one time was an African cichlid planted tanks as well. I got tired of digging and them ripping up plants! About 8 months or so ago I sold them off to a LFS and setup this tank. Its gone through many scapes. A 55 is a challenge to aquascape for me. I was gone for a week or so during the holidays and when I returned the tank was a bit of a jungle. I seem to like it best when its a little over grown. In the photo its in need of a trim. So its my jungle/collector tank for now. Let me know what you think. I have been shooting lots of photos with my new Canon XTi. Im getting better but still a long way off of some of the work I have seen here. Let me know what I can do to improve the photo as well. Im having trouble bringing out the detail and overexposure on some of the plants while other areas are way to dark.
