That's a great start to 2014, for sure! Another gorgeous update - this tank has come such a long way in what *seems* like a very short time! It's beautiful!

I see the reflection of TFK in the glass on one of the shots - that made me grin! Keepin' it real! ^___^
Thanks for the update, and keep posting! Can't wait to see where this year takes you! *hugs*

Hehe
Thanks bunches. I figured it was a good time for another update. I pushed through my ankle sprain misery and did a water change today. It was much needed. I rinised the media and cleaned the canister hoses. Oh the hoses were a pain!!! But thankfully they only needed 1 swipe with the wire brush. I also rearranged the right side a little bit as well. When I get the rig running I'll have to post pics.

Now, the back right corner is bugging me with it's....emptiness. But I use that corner to siphon out the water. If I fill in the corner, I'll have no where to siphon with all the plants O.O

Also, I am hoping to get a group of 6-10 cories this weekend. I am also on the hunt for my 7th and final angel. It will take much searching for this angel. I'm thinking it'll be a dark colored angel.

heehee, I had to look back up to figure out what you were talking about - it obviously didn't bother me any! You can always get some rhizome plants to attach to that driftwood! Then scootch the wood forward a little bit, so there's a hole behind it for siphoning - you'd never be able to tell from the front! I have so much stuff hidden behind rhizome plants in the corner of my 55, lol. ^__^

Oooh, did you see the pretty angels that Lionhead is getting? Blue Marble, I think the picture said. . . I've never kept angels, dunno if those are 'dark' or not - they're all gorgeous to me! Good luck on your hunt for the perfect number 7 - and three cheers for Cories!

I did not see it *runs to find the thread*
I do think the angel will be some sort of Philippine Blue. My silvers have a 1/4 PB from their mother, but not enough to show it on them. One of my silver ghosts shows a very slight hint of it on his dorsal fin, but still not very much.

What rhizome plant you have in mind? I have my java fern/anubis, but they're tiny right now.

Anubias is what I would use - because the leaves are nice and wide, and would hide quite a bit! True, yours are woObies still - but they grow quicker than you might think for such a slow-growing plant! I'd keep an eye out for some older plants being sold by hobbyists, rather than checking pet shops! But then, I had to go back up and look to figure out what you were talking about, lol. The tank looks great! It's really turned into a jungle amazingly quickly! <3

I did plant some hygro trimmings infront of the DW. so hopefully they'll cover the spot nicely
