My 29G after cleaning...

Well, I cleared out all the plants, gunk, algae, etc, etc. out of the 29G last weekend. It was nasty, lol. I had so much BGA in it, it was pulling off in sheets, and the top of the water had a sheet over it as well, lol. It was bad. But when removing the plants, I never thought the java fern was going to fare well, but I was wrong, lol. It looks awsome. I also planted a couple of stems of Bacopa and today, to my suprise, there's 2 flowers blooming under the water. Interesting. I also moved my 2 baby Bolivians from the planted 10G tank to the 29G. When they get big enough, I'll move them over to the 75G with the 7 other Bolivians. If I did it how, they would be lunch for the Bichir. So I want them to get a little bigger first. They are about a half inch right now.

Here's some pics......

really lovely and clear,and the little ones are
just so cute. :) and i'm loving the background too.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

The background is painted with a textured spray paint you can get at Lowe's.

Tank looks good. I like the blackness.

Your rams are quite dark in colour. Is this because they're young and they'll brighten up later? Or just because they've not yet settled in yet? Or another reason, IDK, LOL! They're cute as anything anyway! :)

They are just far too young still. Some of the coloring comes in with maturity.
