November 2015 Freshwater POTM

The Rules

Photos must be uploaded to your photo album and the bbcode link posted in the thread. A brief description of your photo may be included. Albums are found in your profile in the right hand column. If you need assistance uploading to an album, please PM an Aquarium Advice site team member (mod/admin), and they can walk you through it. Once uploaded, you can link directly in the contest thread here using IMG tags.

One photo per member per month allowed, and the photo MUST be taken by you.

I will select the winner of the contest based on the quality of the photograph and how closely it relates to the theme this month . The winner will copy and paste this section to a new thread, where they will decide the theme of next months contest. Submissions will be accepted until the last day of the month. The winner will be announced on the first day next month and will be issued a badge , Anyone holding a badge can post a pic but will be exempt at the final decision .
This page is for posting your pictures only, not chit chat. Failing to follow the rules is means for disqualification.

============================================
The theme for November is going to be:

"Cluster"

I'd like to see your most interesting "cluster".... be that a cluster of fish, snails, shrimp, plants, driftwood, rocks, decorations, etc.
Anything that you believe can qualify as a cluster within the confines of one of your tanks, let's see it!
And please don't be afraid to give us the story behind your cluster! I love stories!!

I set this tank up for dream blue velvet and bee shrimp but didn't want a gorgeous green mass of chaos. I think it shows even if the shrimp don't. Suppose that means I did it right. I have the filter on high so I put the dw and water sprite in the way of the flow. The leaf is set to keep the moss from blocking the intake without messing with the flow of water all around the filter. I thought the moss was Java only, but I've since learned it's a mix of Christmas and Java.

This is the tank that crashed and has since cycled from 8ppm ammonia down to the point where it processed 0-2ppm in 28 hours. I realized I should've been more diligent about removing loose repens and baby tear leaves. Shrimp don't really eat those and it was a costly mistake. I have one cherry, one bee and one blue left from the 15 b, 6 r, 5 bee. I have to admit I now test once or twice a day, 2nd covering nitrAtes in addition to ammonia. I refuse to lose another life to poor chemistry and slovenly housekeeping.

This one is from about a days work of re-arranging the tank all up. Tank size is 4ft.


Previously it had gotten to the stage where I had rocks balanced on rocks and stacked driftwood which was getting very hard to work around for trimming plants. So I decided to move everything to a central point to try something different.


It started off in the garage easy enough with it all laid out but the top of the tank is head height at about 6 feet. So it was lots of climbing up and down the ladder trying to get it sorted.


Now there is 3 rocks on the base, the sunken plane sitting on those and 5 pieces of wood to break up the lines.


Everything grouped in one spot is fantastic. The b/n catfish get along fine and so, so much easy to work around for planting. Picked up a bumblebee catfish several nights ago at auction and he is in there some where as well (yet to see more than the tail lol).

Here's a fun one, a snail pile, like a dog pile but snails.

Was feeding my GBR pair trying to condition for mating if I remember correctly and walked in to see this. They aren't even eating their sinking wafer!
