Well I don't think you can find such a brand over in the states.

So that you know.. It is Ocean Free. I DIY-ed it to hold 2x36w PL-L lights.

The lights are ADA PC NA-LAMP

I don't know how I missed your tank before, it looks great. The rocks and wood are arranged well and the plantings accent them well. The red stems seem a bit thin but I know the tank is still filling in.

Have you considered small rainbowfish? Like threadfins or Pseudomugil gertrudae. They are small enough to fit the tank and are quite showy when you have a few males and several females so the males display for each other and the females.

Thanks for your kind comments =)

Kakoii: Yeah i thought something red is going to suit this scape well... Ruby tetra perhaps?

Redstrat: define distracting too much from it?? Don't really get that part lol..

I really like the scape, the only thing is that vertical twig, as soon as I noticed it I couldn't stop looking at it, I think it'd be best to just snap that big out.
Well done, I'll look forward to see it filled in.

It's filling in nicely. I hope you can get the algae under control quickly.

I like the hint of red in the background, it adds interest without being distracting. The shrimp and fish look great, they stand out even in the full tank shot.

noooo, i LOVED the first one! i'm surprised no one else has been as amazed as i am because that tank is amazing! You must be a true aquascaping artist as i can see from all of your other aquariums that they are awesome too. But you should have stuck with the first setup but the second one is still spectacular.
Hey Neeko, I'm not an artist.. just like any other hobbyist doing their best!
