Looking good!

You've held out on us with your fish! I spy a female betta and some nice red swordtails.

Getting better and better. Also, a good camera and good photographic skills.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I was going to comment on the pictures being so great as well. Is that a high end SLR digital or a point and shoot? What settings are you using to get those pictures. Mine don't come out anyewhere near as well. I have a point and shoot but it is a higher end Canon point and shoot....

Well i use a Sony camera with the original lens but from 100-200 pictures only a few get to see the light, the rest get deleted and besides resizing the pictures i don't use any photoshop "toys". I am actually surprised u guys liked the photos as personaly i only like very few of them.
My trick is to use a lower exposure so that the plants and fish dont have that white neon glow.
Camera is a Sony DSLR-A200.

U know it's all about what plants u can get your hands on. Here u can get any if u have the time to look for them or to much money and as i dont have to much money, i invested time.
Once u have all plants, roots, soil etc put them in one by one and then just look at the aquarium for a bit.
Use your imagination to see what fits where, arange, rearange, slap yourself, rearange more.
In the end u get what u want.
Takes time, tons of anger management, a few good walls to punch, some tips that u can get right here on this forum and u are set :).
Most aquascapes that u see on the web took lots of time to make, mine is just a ford in a mercedes world but for now i am happy with it and eager to see it finished.
After i'm done i'm planing a 6 gallon aquascape that i HOPE i can pull off... We shall live and we shall see
