Updated pics

Here are a few updated pics of my tanks:

55gal comm, 4x65w PC light, CO2, waiting for an order of higher light plants

44gal breeder ARLC, Aulonocara sp., L. caeruleus

5gal heavily planted, Endler's livebearers, cherry shrimp (yes, there are tons of fish in there!)


Do most of you remove old pics from your gallery or just keep stacking them up? Some of mine in the gallery in my sig are old, but I don't know whether to dump them for the newest version of the tank or leave them to show how the tank has evolved.

Thanks, Lori - I think I might have to break out my machete if I ever want to see my fish again in the planted ones - outta control!

Absolutely gorgeous! I can grow plants with 18W over a 30 gal, but what you have is what I want! So maybe when I get rich I'll get me a decent hood to grow plants that densely.

Here is the tank a couple of years ago with simple shop lights - a $9 US fixture! You can have plenty of growth without spending a bunch of money, just choose your plants carefully.

Here is a pic of my office tank, which was not set up when I started this thread, and is set up as an ARLC for calvus (saving my pennies for them) and currently has praecox rainbows and an American Flag-Fish, and a lovely male ancistrus is currently in quarrantine that will go in there:


Here is an updated pic of the 55, which has some new Alternanthera reineckii (red temple) and some Ludwigia peruensis, both of which lost a bunch of leaves upon placement in the tank, but I am hopeful they will rebound. I have pruned back a lot of stuff.


Here is today's shot of the 5.5gal Endler's tank, I am ashamed to say (the poor fishies!), and tomorrow it is getting moved to a 10gal because these plants have gone NUTS since I unplugged the filter.

Wow TG! The tank now looks like a terrarium! Good choice in doing the 10gal. Those poor fish must be wondering where all the swimming surface went.
