Loveeee the black background! But man you need plants :-)

It looks empty ! LOL. Add some more stuff in there ;) I like it, but the fish are probably bored...
Check your params as well just in case, wanna make sure the seeding was enough.

awesome! those little fish make that tank look humongous! (i have a 29 too and boy does it look smaller than that!). I LOVE the pleco. LOVE IT! And +1 on Angel's advice, I'll always advocate a planted tank for the fish. Even if you just stick a few amazon swords in there with some fertilizer tabs. Believe me, my fish love my plants. and if you ask me how I know I'll tell you, but just trust me.

sorry i haven't been on much i tore my knee up and have been trying to get that straightened out.... thank you all for your comments..... it is a growing work in progress i just couldnt wait to share.. as for plants if i find a good deal on plastic or silk i will think about them no live for me and my brown thumb (i can barely keep a fake plant alive LOL).... last night i got this really cool terracotta piece that has multiple openings in it.. i will post pix soon the guppies are going nuts over it and the pleco cant stay off the roof LOL

Angel079 01-28-2010 09:02 AM

Awww now why would you do that? Hope its healing up QUICK!

Oh no fake...bearwith fish...no...that nice set up and then fakes? How about a extra post in the planted section and we'll go over all your set up details and get you planted??

bearwithfish 01-28-2010 09:05 AM

no really i have tried with "easy plants and it turned into a nightmare.. i will do fake or none from here out trust me.. when it comes to human behavior i am on pont when it comes to plants well if they were people i would be losing clients left and right....

Angel079 01-28-2010 09:24 AM
