Nice tank! I'm not sure if you have a background, if not then I would consider getting one. Makes it easier on the eyes.

Thanks! Yeah, i just have a black background, I like the way it makes the plants and fish "pop" thanks for the tip though!

Also....I posted an Oto update in my Oto thread (i meant to do it in this one but i picked the wrong thread....silly me!) But for those who are wondering, 2 of the 3 are doing great, the 3rd is AWOL, but i haven't seen a floater or found a body. They DO eat algae wafers though! So that makes me happy, i know they'll eat supplemental food. YAY! The full(er) update is here: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...tml#post854279

Also, i'll be sure to get some updated tank shots soon, i did a little pruning but then kept keaving my camera at work (oops!) and now i need to do some pruning again! But once that's done, i'll post new pics

Well it's been a while since I posted a photo update, so here's a quick one of the pruned and regrown tank. I think I had the camera on the wrong setting though because this one is blurry (sorry it looked good on the little tiny camera screen!) so i'll have to get a better one this evening!



And my Happy Betta:


And one of my chubby otos:

JessieVB - The tank is still doing well, i need to prune out some stalks of cabomba that aren't as happy, and move around some of the shoots that are doing really well. The Crypts had a melting fit but are all growing new leaves again! And the Wisteria is doing really well. The Otos are still doing great, they're both chubby and energetic! I'll try to get some updated pictures posted soon, tonight if I can!

Blindskate - thanks! Yeah he really seems to love it in there, he's much more active than when i had him in a 1.5g

Karegg - thank you so much! And yes, i love the Otos! They're a great addition to the tank

Here are some photo updates of my 5g. I did a fair bit of pruning on the Cabomba so it's looking a LITTLE sparse at the moment, i think i'm going to try to keep the cabomba a little sparser though and leave the Wisteria thick and full (if i let them both get forest like, where will anyone swim?! ) I was having trouble getting good photos of the tank tonight, so here's a few. I was able to get a few really good pictures of my Betta though, so i'm including those as well As always, questions, comments, concerns, suggestions are all welcome! Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoy!

My 5 gallon tank with no flash (using a couple different settings):
