Okay not as impressive on this side but here it is none the less. Need a few more plants and working on that as we speak. Right now the right side has two micro swords, a regular sword in the back corner and wisteria, and anibus tied to a rock in the center of creek. I found it hard to get a good picture of the entire tank straight in, seems to lose details.

What about some Hygro for the back right there where the intake is, that might look nice?

Here's my tank full of Hygro's Yellow's 55g - 55 gallon Freshwater fish tank

It is in fact true that plants reflect the lights received, e.g if you had a bulb with a Kelvin rating purely BLUE in color that would show your plants differently then if you had a low Kelvin with mainly yellow.

However what he's got is 6500K which is what I have and you see the pictures of my red plants (or check out my tanks here http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/p...hp?userid=1029)

i was thinking dont put in in a shady place when i wrote that . 6500k is great for any plants given tiger lotus isn't in a shade or too deep in the tank if they want it to be red and low instead of have them rise to the surface

Sure Angel I am open for any suggestions. Work me up another smallish order in the $20 to 25 range.

Thanks for the FTS. I have a tank that doesn't take a nice "straight on" shot either. Weird, huh? I think your tank looks great!!

Kitten,,,, yeah you are right there are a few spots and one plant that has yellowed pretty bad. Not sure why, the rest are starting to look pretty good. I am hoping its just the shock of being moved and replanted. Im shocked at how fast it is growing in, I thought coming in it would be a good 6 months to a year to fill it up. Looking more like 2 to 3 months to have a well stock planted tank. Its been fun, I work 12 hour shifts daily and I can actually see growth each day, its noticeable when you are gone for awhile.
