Beautiful color combination, André. The reds pop out of the green background.

Impressive work. Keep it up and post regularly. I'd like to see the development.

Also, can you please add the specs about the tank (size, dimensions, filter, light, wattage, ...)

Thank you.

regards,
Ravi

I love those little tetras. I saw some in my lfs for the first time the other day but they were $15 each. How did you acquire yours?

matt1015: Thanks matt... i am happy your enjoy...

derekp: here in Brazil they cost around 1 U.S. dollars. Are very common in stores for aquariums.

More one picture


I have a little more novelty in that tank. I made some minor changes in layout to give a greater effect of depth, because of the way earlier this effect was not very noticeable. With these changes I think the layout looks much improved. I think with time everything will improve. It is not difficult to understand that the mosses are tied with red lines, but unfortunately was the only color I had available at this time.

Come to detail: On the left side, I made a small elevation with gravel and rocks there and put some stones with mosses, followed by others around the trunk. On the right side, another hill, but this time with Eleocharis Minimum Echinodorus tenellus and that's not for now to see. These are to do with the contrast of Valisnérias and saggital brings. The trunk and some plants were also changed their position.



I hope your enjoy...

Regards
