    Looking good ReefMonkey

    I like the look of what looks to be 1 very large rock in the centre, what type of rock is that?

    It's a resin driftwood replica. I wanted real wood but a comparable piece that size was around $80. That cost me $19.99 at Petsmart LOL.

    Hrmm...maybe I should do some trimming

    I was just messing around with my camera and thought I'd share this stuff. In the video notice the size of that female. She's extremely pregnant...again. Also see how even though she is in that way the male still poses and flares for her. It cracks me up cuz I can relate ;)

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    It is beautiful, I could sit and watch it for hours. A very similar tank was my inspiration as a child.

    Your tank makes me want to set up a fresh water tank again.

    Very nice.

    Thanks! When I got into the planted tanks I had no idea how much work they are. Wish I knew someone close that could take my cuttings. I have no where else to go with them and will hate throwing them in the trash.

    Nice. I have two pairs of guppys in my biggest planted tank. They dont match the amazon theme, but I felt bad because they were just being used as feeders. So they ended up in my tank. Haha. But interesting little fish. The tank is looking great.
