prolly not on the real plants...i dunno...i love fish..but i'm just taking it one thing at a time...i've only been keeping fish since august. i want to become an expert at one thing before i try another. hee hee :p

not sure how tall it is exactly, but its at LEAST 3 feet...possibly even four...i stood in a chair to aquascape it and i still couldnt reach the bottom of the tank. i used a spatula to move sand around the plants. lol

and yes, it was still quite cloudy in those pics...it's actually looking pretty clear now, another day or too and i should be able to post some better pics. thanks for your interest!

glad i could influence you! i haven't really given alot of thought toward stocking it as i have pretty much decided to go primarily with angelfish...i love them so and I want to give Sun (my angel) some playmates and maybe even try to breed in the future! other than that...i DO have my eye on a Black ghost knife or maybe a gold nugget pleco...and there are some platys and danios in the tank already....so at this point it's anybodys game...

i could really do anything with it...but there arent really alot of interesting fish to choose from at my lfs...so i am open to ideas...i DID finally see two rasboras last night , they were silver with black patches on their sides...kinda pretty...but again, i will need suggestions that will co-habitate peacefully with angels!

thanks alot! and i dont think that orange is girly! :wink:

i am not a chauvanist! i was just saying that for joutei's benefit, that orange isn't girly or manly..it's a nice in-between color....could go either way...
