Congrats Lilyann on winning TOTM. You will soon receive a "TOTM Winner" banner in your profile area. Well deserved win!

To those who didn't win, you may reenter your tank in a future TOTM contest. Also, I hope other members will considering entering our contests.

Our Fish of the Month contest will start up soon. This month we will feature CATFISH. You may enter any catfish...from dwarf cories to large plecos-all are eligible. So take a pic of one of your catfish and be prepared to enter the FOTM contest.

Also, that tank is very creative. I've never seen anything like it. So very much different than a standard rectangle. The purpose for it also unique. I would like to see pictures of it six months down the road.

Thanks, I really like it also. I was inspired by a LFS that I went into in San Jose, Ca. They had many smaller vases of various dimensions with both submersed and emersed plants. This kinda got my mind going about what I could replicate at home-- this was what came of that.
They also had what they called "pond aquariums"- which were designed to look like small ponds. Such cool stuff. There is alot of creativity going on right now with the hobby that has been inspired by ripariums, terrariums, and such. Kind of a mash-up of all these elements.

I also got another light, 1 for the front and 1 for the back so it doesn't look so "jerry- rigged" ~lol!
Added some more plants: some buce and petite anubias.

Here are some more pictures so can see the lighting as it is now. A picture top down and on the side.

Is the Bromeliad sitting on something or actually in the water? I just love it!

(Well, knowing shrimp, they are all probably hiding under a leaf...:lol:)
