Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I see you recently joined, so welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

I have two large Amazon tanks at present, the 115g is an Amazonian Riverscape and the 90g is a flooded Amazon forest. Photos are in my log, which is under the "Aquariums" tab below my name on the left. Those photos are old (during past year) and I have just this month redone all the tanks, new photos will be up soon, but they give you an idea of what is possible. Below is the new flooded Amazon forest tank, this photo was taken this past Thursday, and this tank has been set up abouot 3 weeks now. I used the 70g tank, with new Flourite Black substrate, and the wood, fish and plants were moved from the former 90g.
