Great looking tank! congrats!
I like all the different setups...especially the one u have now
Those yellow koi angels are beautiful too.

Do u know the name of that foreground plant in front of the wood? Looks like short tape grass. I wanna use it in my angel tank to brighten up the dull gravel. Right now i have glossostigma but my pleco turns entire patches of it into a floating plant overnight.

It's really beautiful!

What fish are the fry? there's a fair few of them anyway.

Wow, absolutely gorgeous! That's the kind of planted tank I've always dreamed of having. It's so alive and beautiful!

I am also curious about the fry. What kind are they?

Thanks everyone for the comments. This is definitely a fun tank to just stare at for hours. The plant in front of the wood is dwarf hairgrass. It has given me a few problems I blame it on the gravel but to me its a little more difficult to manage, I would hate to tell you this Matt but plecos to me were just problems they always tore up my tank. I switched to SAE'S and ottos there a little more gentle on the plants. I could be completely wrong but if my plecos were still in my tank the plants would be all floating plants. The little fry are from the pair of albino orange koi mix theres a pic of the 2 spawning on a leaf. I'm really pumped these are the 1st fry I had since discus breeding and there so fun. Thanks everyone again.

WOW!!!! Those are awesome. Do you think you could give me some advice. I really want to get a 55 or 75 (perferably the latter) and i was thinking about 2 angels 3 yoyo loaches and 8 Phantom Tetras and then 8-10 other tetras. How hard is it to set up a planted tank and how do you really do it.
