Willow I think it looks great! The fake plants gives it some good color soo nothing wrong with that!

Looks great! Those tiger barbs are rather neat little fishies.

Don't let anyone tell you there is anything wrong with fake plants! That's the majority of what I have in my goldfish tank. I think they fit in with your 'scape very well, too.

Really nice!

thanks guys....i do like my silk plants. :-D
last night water appeared to be going a little cloudy....bacterial bloom ?
no ammonia showing,however there are nitrItes and nitRates,
perhaps i was hoping that with the noodles and gravel from the old tank
i would be cycle ?
oh and it's not a visitherm heater it's an Aqua clear.

i do love tiger barbs..and i would like to add another couple.....then
the loaches...when the water sorts it's self out. :-)

Hehe! Welcome to the loach club!!

gosh,looking at those pictures,and then looking over to the tank,
the plants have grown well already.
i shall update pics at the weekend.
no more fish have been added,as levels are not right,and two barbs
are not fairing well,three normal tigers doing well...two of the three
albino struggling.bristlenose..minding his own business and doing his rasping :-D

(I knew there was a thread on this tank around this old forum somewhere!)
Looking good, girl! Off to a great start, and I can't WAIT to see where you go from here!
That surely is quite a BIG glass box! ^.^

Loaches are awesome. You won't regret them. Promise. . .

ello :-D thanks for popping in.
was going to post some pics last night,however there was a change of plan.
i will take some tonight though,because i'm going to attempt my first water
change on this tank...i guess it's not major huge,as my other 4ft was,
just again i have to stand on the ladder to do anything inside,i was hoping
it was lower, shouldn't moan,when i never thought i would
be able to get another big tank :-D
i'm going to do a water test shortly,and hopefully the levels will be better.:-D

That, my dear, is what we here in journal land call TEASING! AND?!! It is strictly forbidden! (in spite of which, it seems to happen an awful lot?!!)

Good luck on the First Water Change! Very exciting!!!
I know the feeling of being too short to reach the bottom very well - better get the scuba gear on! ^_^

*fingers crossed* for your water test!

. . . keep us posted!
