An established 45 gallon planted tank

Hello guys. This is just my second aquarium and well I think it is time to send some pictures up here on my favorite forum on aquariums. Thanks to this fantastic site and an excellent LFS this tank seems to have gone in the direction I had always dreamed of an aquarium to evolve into...

Everything in the water is an attempt to stay as 100% natural as possible and to allow the fish a very calm lifestyle while also enhancing my evenings at home in living room as much as possible.

2 Bolivian Butterfly rams
5 panda corys
2 Chinese hillstream loaches
17 cardinal tetras
4 priscilla tetras ( 2 albinos )
1 sickle tail tetra
plenty of snails
plenty of plants

Hope you folks enjoy the pics as much as I do the aquarium.

You have a beautiful tank, you take amazing pictures and I am a little jealous. My plants do not look as nice as yours. I had 2 fishy landscapers that insisted on trimming everything very short and uprooting half of it.

I love the shot of your pleco on the leaf, it almost looks like it is drawn on there. I soooo wish I could take pictures as nice as yours, I love them. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.
