They are on there way of filling in a little bit now but I dont want them to get really good roots just in time for me to pull them up and re-position them. I would rather do it now than than. Thats why I'm asking everyone for there advice on where I should position them knowing that I have pic's of my tank in this thread. So...with what I have know what does everyone think? What would make my tank look better/deeper/bigger?

hi
i understand the problem you are having,
at the moment,it is looking a little empty.(but still nice)
what about if you put a couple of the smaller plants in the front
corners,but not too close to the front.
can you split the big plant maybe in to two ?
make a rock formation in the middle and if you can split the big plant
then maybe put the two either side of the rock cave.
hope i'm not confusing you. :)
have you got e-bay over there,as there are usually some
really good bargins to be had,especially when you are on a budget.
Brie had a good idea about rocks from your yard,(although you should test them first)
how about coconut huts,plant pots. ?

Thanks for the reply...
Yes I know it is looking a little empty. Especially the Middle and Right side..Your not confusing me to much. So what you are saying is the big plant I have, split it in two and than find some sort of rock formation somewhere around the house or something ( That will be hard I am really going to for the natural look ) and than put one half of the big plant on one side of the rock formation and the other half on the other side. The only problem I have with putting the little plants in front corners is that I dont want to decrease the view into the tank, because they will get bigger...It is going to be hard to find a good decoration for the middle of the tank. Ive been on the lookout for a nice piece of driftwood for the middle....

well, if my angels ever get any ideas on eating any fish it will be the neons, since they are smaller than cardinals. Thats why I'm going with cardinals is they are bigger....
Hmmmmm Now what fancy pleco shall I get?

Oh yes, I forgot you have neons. :)
Now, if you're going to get a pleco, it must be a zebra pleco. Otherwise there's no point in getting one :bluelaugh: :jk:

Psssshhh you guys!!!
Okay so i'm not getting a pleco thats going to whipe my bank account out!!!

And blue...what is that sposed to mean :wink:
Your saying that you never know me to not want more tetra's? Hmmm... lol but seriously what do you think about my last fishy's?
I do water changes every 2 day's at least 20% I do good on maintenance ( or else my clown loaches would be dead because they need good water to live in ;) ).....
So, what would be a good -not so expensive- fancy pleco?
also..what y'all think about the cardinals! lol
