Absolutely beautiful!! Your angels love to be video taped! LOL. They seem to be a good group, no picking on each other. I would sit by this tank and watch for hours. who needs TV. Good job!!!

thank you :D

the angels wont do their own thing unless i hide from them lol i was hiding behind my chair to film most of it haha

If you see the old pictures to the video you can see that i took out the dwarf hairgrass because the angels would pick at so much and every morning half of it would be floating. I got tired of fixing it lol so i bought one pot of microsword to see how that grows but ive noticed its REALLY slow. Maybe ill try some Dwarf baby Tears for my lawn in a few weeks.

Also added hornwort, cryptocoryne, java moss, and propagating everything else when i can since my last update

The current fish setup isnt much, but when im satisfied with the setup for plants ill be gettings the fish i want.

I had about that much in my original purchase but it has grown and grown since then and filled in well. Occasionally I see something I like at a store and buy another plant lol

Beautiful tank! I tend to look at peoples tanks and think "would I want to sit and watch that for hours?" The answer for yours is YES> It just looks so clean, neat and peaceful. The fish seem very happy in their home and that is nice to see. The whole plant thing is very very addictive, isn't it? I keep buying more and changing things in my tank as well. :) Keep up the good work. About the time you get it where you want it, you can buy a second tank. :)

Thank you! I have this in bedroom it's so relaxing to watch. I will lay on my bed and watch it, And at night when the LED moonlighting comes on I fall asleep to it. Best thing ever haha

Once Im done with this tank I'm going to start piecing together a salt water coral reef tank. Never done it before but I'm up for a challenge, but in no hurry at all. I'll do my research :D

After a long quarantine of my discus i finally added them to the 75g :D Once they start growing more and the angels start getting bigger i will be re-housing some of the angels.

PS- i am renovating some of the plants lately, trying to find a nice setup that i like again lol

Hey all!

It has been a while since I posted on my journal, but here is an update of what things are looking like these days.

I might be shutting it down in the next month or so and picking a different tank that has more scaping possibilities lol this tank is just SO tall and narrow, not alot of depth to play with. Probably going to go with a 40g breeder cause of its depth and big footprint.

Anyways hope you like!
