Katherine's Rio 180 (Updated)

Here's a couple of shots of my tank taken tonight. I have removed the blue background, thinned out the plants (a lot)! and come Thursday my tank inhabitants will be the bottom dwellers (khulies and corys) and 2 juvenille gold severums.








Pics of the sevs to follow :)

Thanks everyone. I'm not confident that the plants will last for long once the sevs have been introduced, but I'll keep them there in the hope...

What a stunning tank but a sev in your tank? Pity the plants will not last.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone.

Blue: if the sevs destroy the plants I'll just have to go for silk ones instead - I think there are some fairly realisitic ones available now.

I'll be quite disappointed to do that though, because I love live plants. I like the way that they are constantly changing - the tank never looks exactly the same. Still, I'm willing to sacrafice them for the gold sevs which I've wanted for a very long time :)
