It looks nice but I think your tank is overcrowded. You have alot of fish in there for it to be only 36 gallons.

I agree with calmwaters, the tank does look nice... but it does seem that the fish are overcrowded. The angels that you have in there right now look like they are small and will require more room when they get larger.

I've come back 2 or 3 times to look at these photos. Really nice, those Rosy Tetras look so good in the blackwater.

I much prefer this biotope style set-up to the ADA/Amano stuff that seems so popular lately.

Wouldnt those leaves need to be removed because they will just rot? Or am I wrong in thinking that?

Thanks for all the comments... Yes, I know the tank is overcrowded... But I am planning to move... That is stopping me from having a very large tank. But I promise, I will have 6 foot tank, if I move to a larger house. :) But I cannot promise that I will have again a tank full of smaller fishes in it. :D I want to keep Geophagus altifrons or Exodons, in my dreams... Then I will move all these fishes and set-up seen on the photos above to my existing (as a South American Medley Aquarium) ~55 g tank... ;)

In the forums, it is always told that the rotten leaves will foul the water and is recommended that we should remove them. But I do not, have never removed any and the water of my aquaria did not get worse. Simply, the rotten leaves fall apart and mixed up with the sand. I observed no unwanted effect, especially in the water chemistry and all my fishes are healthy.
