Here is an update after about 1.5 months since building the tank.

Happy habitants are:

5 Redline Barbs
7 Dwarf Neon Rainbows
7 Cherry Barbs
6 Kuhli Loaches (only been 5 days in the tank and I have only seen 4 at once so far so hopefully they are all ok)
5 Amano Shrimp (only seen all 5 twice in 2 weeks but see 3-4 a lot)
2 Longfin BN Plecos

Picture 1 - Obligatory full tank shot
Picture 2 - One of the few other shots that wasn't blurry:) Showing new plants Green Cabomba in middle back which is 2 weeks old and has almost hit the surface already and has many other "sprouts" coming off the nodes. It likes the tank a lot and I suspect I will be trimming it as much as the Aponogetan in the left corner. The Red Ludwigia in the back left is only a week old and just starting to grow.
Picture 3 - Cave on the left where you can just make out 2 Kuhli's inside and 1 on the left of the cave.
Picture 4 - Cave with the master of the cave on top. There is almost always one Amano Shrimp on top feeding off it. They look like they doing a little shrimp dance as they skitter around on it eating. Also I heard a rumour Kymmie likes close ups :)
Picture 5 - Shot from left side of the tank

Sweet! Yes, I adore close ups, thank for posting.
I'm glad you went for the Denison Barbs. Great fish and they get more and more color as they get older. I LOVE mine. Your tank looks fantastic! Very well done. Are your longfin BNs the brown or albino versions??

Man, my picture taking skills suck. I have a decent canon sd880 point and shoot but I am NOT good at pictures. What kind of settings do people use to take pictures of fast moving fish with the flash off through glass anyways? Some of the pictures I have seen are fantastic.

Well, Auntie Kymmie here is the best I could get tonight after about 2 bajillion pictures. The pleco's are always on the move in the evening and my aformentioned moving fish picture taking skills are pathetic at best I will endevour to get some good ones going forward for both of us

Beautiful tank, Pep, and your photos are great. It's nice to follow along with you and your 90g tank and the plants and inhabitants. Thanks

Awww, thank you for posting! I really like the long fin versions of BNs. Nice looking fish. I have no idea how other people take such good photos. I do the macro setting, camera flash off, lights turned off in the room and tank lights on. I never get any good shots of any of the fast movers. I'm sure you tried to get a shot of your Denisons. Good luck, because those suckers are FAST. The only halfway decent pics that I ever got of mine was when a friend came by with his mucho dinero camera that takes a pic every 1/2 second, or something crazy like that.
Congo tetras are some very fast moving fish and you should see the pics Jeaninel has posted of hers. She has gorgeous pics of her fish. We should ask her how she does it. Byron has also posted some really nice pics of late.
