Nice colourful tank you've got there. :)

Thanks. It doesnt look that good in the picture because the light is off in the tank.If I left it on and turned the camera flash off the picture would be blurry,and if I turned the flash on it would be way too bright.
And also,none of my fish stay in one spot!!

Hi serpaekeeper,

Glad you managed to get the pics posted. :) I love the way you have the pebbles scattered around on the gravel - it's nice and natural looking. One thing I would say, is that I liked the overall look of the tank better when you had the black backing on it. For one, the equipment didn't show up as much, and I think the fish were easier to see.

How about adding some more plants to the tank to give the fish more hiding places?

Thanx for the suggestion.the other side of that backing is black,and maybe I will try flipping it over.I will get more plants too.I will get more pics when I get more plants.

lovely looking tank,i really like it.
only thing i would say against would be the tiger barbs
maybe, how long is the tank,as they are a very active swimmer
and may harass your other fish.

Thats something that I never thought of,I dont think I will get anymore fish soon,but I will get some more plants.
Thanks for the comments guys!!
