Hi Rocky,

Not much to update on the central tank really. I did rescape it as the first set up was just quickly put together due to other projects and i was missing greenery🌿

Just nice and neat for now while i come up with ideas for how i want the tank long term.

Fish are doing great and looking good. My bocourti are really packing on some size again now and im really enjoying the colombian tetras colour and movement. All in all a nice settled tank🙂

Wow! Incredible!! I figured you planted it lol. You always have some sort of greenery in your tanks.

And Connor is right, your photos are always top notch.
Didn't you say before that you used a Samsung s22 or something? I forget lol

Ive raised my light and added more terrestrial plants to the central tank this week (Boston fern, Peace lily) to go with the Devils ivy i already have, ive got some Monstera on the way too🙂

Peace lilies are pretty small atm but hopefully grow and thicken out. Ill put the Monstera next to them on the left and let the ivy grow up and across above the light.

Which light and substrate are you using and how long is your aquarium ? I know your is older but i'm wondering how the new blades will perform.

Really happy with both the big tanks. Was looking into turning the central tank back into more of a natural central amercian bio but im loving it too much atm. Terrestrial plants seem to be doing well. Monstera was added last week and is already sending off new leaves. Ive got a parlour palm arriving tomorrow to try out.

Can you post a species list and water condition (gh/kh/tds/temp - just those you know) - i think these are important parameters around an aquarium ;) I did check the other page of the thread and couldn't find them.
 
Making me question my Malawi plan here bud! Saw some Kali Tawa rainbows the other day too - would look awesome in your tanks!

Love the contrast in your tank. The plants give me the impression that they're fake plants. But it's a beautiful green in the tank.
