    Tank Setup:

    A 260L Jewel Tank with an oak wood stand fitted with double cupboards housing a 350L canister external filter and the other bits and bobs needed.
    Lit with a bar LED that changes colour.
    Water change is done twice a month at 2/3 and vacuum the gravel.

    Aquascape:

    Aquascaped with 5 8' Amazon Sword rooted in a fine black gravel with occasional white gravel at the back of the tank covering most of a blue background(Was a reef tank before, I will change once I found a good 3D Background)
    Large wooden piece with many crevices and a few fake plants attached. This is placed towards the rear of the tank where an air stone creates bubbles through holes(knots in the wood).

    Fish::fish:

    Marbled veil-tail Angelfish 5'
    Black Angelfish 4'
    2x Dwarf Gouramis
    10x Mollies(an orange and black mix)

    Sorry I could not provide a picture of my aquarium, once I get a background and rescape with stones rather than wood I will be happy too.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my entry. :thanks:

    Tank: AquaOne AquaVogue 185
    Filters: Fluval 406, AquaOne Ocellaris 850
    UV: FishRFun 9W (8 hours per day)
    Temp: 25C
    pH: 7.2
    GH: 16DH
    KH: 18DH
    Bogwood, Mopani, Oak twigs. Oak twigs are assisted in creating the black water effect by Rooibos teabags.
    14 x Cardinal Tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi)
    15 x Glowlight Tetra (Hemigrammus erythrozonus)
    4 x Peppered Cory (Corydoras paleatus)
    4 x Sterbai Cory (Corydoras sterbai)
    6 x Dwarf Chain Loach (Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki)
    1 x Bristlenose Pleco (Ancistrus sp.)
    Dwarf Water Lettuce (Pistia stratiotes)
    Amazon Frogbit (Limnobium laevigatum)
    Anubias barteri var. nana
    Java Fern (Microsorium pteropus)
    Java Moss (Vesicularia Dubyana)

    Still a work in progress. This used to live in my study as a fairly typical blackwater setup. I recently re-located it to the living room and SWMBO felt it was a bit too (ahem) natural looking. So I have tried to create a tropical lagoon while retaining a natural environment for the fish. I keep threatening to remove the artificial rum kegs but the peppered corys have adopted this as their town hall. Hopefully in time the (artificial) pumice stones will be fully covered in java moss.
    Feed 5 days a week using NLS small pellets as staple with shrimp pellets, catfish pellets, algae wafers, frozen bloodworm or freeze dried tubiflex for variety - but not all at once. 2 x 50% water changes per week.
