    Things look great. No discernible changes since week one. That denotes stability to me. Your photography is excellent. I like how you don't go rapidly herky jerky all over the place. You focus on the fish and stay on so we get a good look. I hate it when people go all Blair Witch with their videos. Love your tank. It's awesome.

    If you are running a tank diary, you should add each new week to the original thread so people can see the results from day 1 to present day. Starting a new thread each week means people have to search back through the forum in order to see earlier pictures of the tank.
