I don't do anything to it besides add leaf zone i believe it what its called so the plants don't turn yellow.. sometimes once a week or 2 ill add the flourish excel organic carbon.. i find the more I leave it alone the better the tank does.. so I try not to mess with it and let it do its own thing.. I did back down the light on it some.. was doing about 12 hours.. only do about 8 now..

attached is what it looked like when i got the new swords a few weeks ago..

Haha I think everyone does. I saw a massive version if it at my lfs but they wanted 90 bucks for it. And if I'm reshaping this winter I plan on going more natural. I get to rescape if I'm a good boy so says the wife who just got a new laptop. She thinks shes so smart lol too bad for her I just got a new credit card to play with and what momma don't know can't hurt her.

The big castle is sweet but I wasn't going to spend $90 on it either! Lol! Be careful with the credit card! She may figure it out with all the holes burned through your pockets! Lol!

I have never had any issues with them and they've been together for a year. The key is to have a large school.

First post. I don't have a terribly good camera. Here is my spoiled rotten fighting fish, LeChuck (the skull and the name are a reference to the game series "Monkey Island"). Lechuck is mostly blue and is pie headed, so it gives him an undead/ghostly look. Thus the name and the corny skull that I only thought was awesome considering the circumstances.

Right now his tank light is off and he's got printer paper around most of the aquarium because he won't stop attacking his reflection.
