Thanks. It doesnt look that good in the picture because the light is off in the tank.If I left it on and turned the camera flash off the picture would be blurry,and if I turned the flash on it would be way too bright.
And also,none of my fish stay in one spot!!

Hi serpaekeeper,

Glad you managed to get the pics posted. :) I love the way you have the pebbles scattered around on the gravel - it's nice and natural looking. One thing I would say, is that I liked the overall look of the tank better when you had the black backing on it. For one, the equipment didn't show up as much, and I think the fish were easier to see.

How about adding some more plants to the tank to give the fish more hiding places?

Kate :)

hi
lovely looking tank,i really like it.
only thing i would say against would be the tiger barbs
maybe, how long is the tank,as they are a very active swimmer
and may harass your other fish.

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.
