    Thanks, I will try the background, and if it looks appealing, I'll keep it. I think it's just me, but I don't like the whole over hanging effect unless I wanted to go for a "shallow river" type setup... Not to mention, that's some tall growth I'd have to pull off and match with other plants...

    Thanks everyone! Yes, but most of the bubble go right by it anyways... Sure have. I actually have one, but it has a nice, fat crease through it.... I'll have to buy another one.

    It's been a while! But here's what it looked like last night: Closer look at the jungle: I just ripped out ALL of the glosso because I didn't like its growth during the low light period to rid the algae. I replanted it just like I did in the beginning of this tank - hopefully (with the...

    Okay - will do - getting tons of that stuff is free for me. Funny, I actually have one, and you just reminded me to actually put it on there. Thankyou for your suggestions, criticisms, and complements - All of it helps in every way! ~ Brant

    It's held by airline tubing and suction cups. I have E.I. ferts standing by, but I don't dose anything yet, as I am still waiting for several test kits to arrive. I change 20 % weekly. When I begin E.I. - that will up to 50 %. ~ Wonderboy!

    I replanted the "jungle", because I did not like how some plants were beginning to get covered by larger ones. I will post pictures of the new "jungle" soon. Also, I am beginning to get a hair algae problem, so I think I may have an excess amount of phosphorus - hence me ordering a test kit...

    Lighting Help Please

    The bulbs you list look much more promising in my opinion - I would definetly give them a shot, as I think they would perform much better than the ones you are using now for any planted tank. ~ Wonderboy!

    OK! There hasn't been too much noticable, but the plants are pearling and I can notice a difference in person, but anyways here it is: And here's the Jungle: And this is the glosso (which has definetly been growing horizontally quite well): ~ Wonderboy!

    Actually - I will give that some thought! A few discus isn't a bad idea... Is there another large "centerpiece" fish that would work in this setup? ~ Wonderboy!

I keep and have kept the following fish with mine: Silver arowana African tiger fish Florida gar Jardinin arowana Bala Sharks Clown knife Ornate Bichir Redtail catfish Although I never have, I wouldn't suggest keeping eels with them though - IMO - I've always worried that with the...

    Alrighty then, I decided to organize a little, so here's a bit of DIY: I built this out of a couple wooden plate holders from Fry's: I threw this under the stand: So I could do this: Top Drawer: Tools Middle Drawer: Misc., plant tabs, lead weights, plant IDs.... etc. Bottom Drawer: Dry...

    Golden Zebra Botia

    Hmmmm... Thanks, I think it is worth a try for me - as I might not end up keeping shrimp after all. Thanks!

    When it comes to experimenting with plants, that is what my 20 gallon is for. I would rather enjoy keeping the 80 a display with select species rather than splotches of different species. IMO I am done with the hardscape. I know it can be done no problem, and I will be adding riccia, but not...
