feb 2013 1st time planted tank newest pics
Just thought I'd share some pictures. This is my first natural like planted tank. Also I know that my Clown Loach will grow too big--obviously should not listen to fish advice from petco/petsmart.
Here is dec/jan

Looks pretty good to me.

How's it going from your prespective?

Well I wish the sword in the back corner would grow up alot taller and bigger, as it is it seems like it should have been a middle plant.

I also wish I had went with all flame moss and no christmass moss, but wasn't sure how it would actually look till I got it.Internet pictures can mislead alittle.

I definitely would stick to the black and regualr neon tetras mixed with false julii cories and I like my tiny little bumblebee catfish even if it is only the size of a fingernail.

Overall I am pretty happy with it, It looks way nicer to me than how it was before with the multicolored rocks and fake plants and I think the fish are happier too.

That's vedry nice. You do need a background, and for something very inexpensive and very effective get a sheet (or two) of plain black construction paper from an art/hobby store. The back disappears and the tank looks deeper and the plants and fish really stand out.

Only other suggestion is some floating plants to calm the fish.

Nice work.
