WOW! Loving those Laetacara! I still haven't got up to Wharf so I bet they will have sold the others as the wrong thing before I get up there! Doesn't look like it'll be for a while! Loving the tank too; like Sam said the illusion of larger tank is very convincing.
I have an Eheim Eco going on soon, so that sould help, but I have discovered the tank isn't as big as i thought it was, bought off ebay and never checked the size it was stated, so have ordered a new tank today thats nearly twice as big
Its Amazon Frogbit, nice isn't it, have it on my apisto tank too.
I was up at Wharf last week Ed, Ricahrd agreed that they where wrongly labelled and has now changed them, has sold a few too and he's sold the display pair which he wouldn't sell me well at least I couldn't see them in the tank.
Well after many hours of replanting, cleaning, fish moving, general grunting and moaning, I have got the Laetacara's a new home, its a 30" long tank, they seem to prefer the extra space male is still being a bit agressive but nowhere near what he was and I think by the time some of the plants grow in and lines of sight broken he will start to chill and hopefully we will have just babies to worry about sorry for the poor pictures, the water was still a little cloudy when I shot these.
Love the big leaves in the plant in the last photo - what is it? Some kind of sword? Remind me of a cabbage!
Looks great overall. As you say when things grow up it will look ace. When everything is first planted it all looks very linear as everything you buy is always 15cm long, it's all very flat. Looking forward to hearing about babies!
Echinodorus 'Aquartica', wanted something, sword like that wouldn't grow massive, my normal amazon swords reach over 2ft within a couple of months of going in and just take over, hopefully this one should stay a bit smaller but fill out the space nicely
Small update, \got some Laetacara curviceps to replace the Laetacara I lost, also a pair of small banjo cats and a quartet of horseface loaches, thinking about it, it probably wasn't the brightest move putting these in a heavily planted tank. but I like the fish and they are happy.
