Tank fully planted now (I think) added some anubias, Rotella indica, Anacharis (sp?) took out the dragonflame as it died very shortly after planting. Also added 4 Praecox Rainbows, and 2 Honey Gouramis.

MAN! you have really done a good job at aquascaping that tank :shock2:
Thanks! I just hope that everything grows as well as my Alternanthera Reineckii (that stuff is growing really fast). The two varieties of Anubias (coffeefolia and nana) were put in this past week to replace the nasty dragonflame that "melted" and to help stem the slight Algae growth that started to occur.

lovely tank, what filter are you using? Is it top fin?
It's an Elite Hush 35, which I wouldn't have used if I had to do it all over again. I would go with an Aquaclear.
Same Here, I Just took Mine Back though...
I have been thinking about it, but I am not sure if it's a good idea since I am fully established with my bacteria. How long are planning on floating the media?

Hey by the way... Where did you Get your Plants?
My LFS, they have a really good selection and really nice quality. It's a place called Aquarium Adventures, and will special order just about any fish you can find. It's a great place, 60% freshwater and 40% saltwater as well as plants and corals.

Many of the smaller local shops will order you pretty much anything if you're going to buy it...atleast in this area. One of the small shops I visit will order any kind of fish you want along with pretty much any equipment including custom built tanks. And even Petco here has a list of fish they can order for you if they don't have it in the store. Just ask.

Nice tank :eek: , but may I make a few suggestion. The Anubias barteri is planted to deep, and needs to be pulled up a little out of the substrate.
Micro Echinodorus would grow faster if you spread them out. And the plant in the middle background (one one with the purple leaves) is non aquatic and will soon die.

Thanks for the info. My substrate is fairly large, not typical gravel so would I have to pull it out still? Seems to be doing well. Most stones are about 1/4-1/3 wide.

I really don't want the Micros spreading out to much from where they are, so I don't really care about fast growth.

Any suggestions on something that has kind of purple colorations?
