Re: "Prairie Lands"... partial full tank shot.

Yeah I'd say the first one is an espei and the other two are just Harlequins, probably some colour variations.

I really love this pic, you can almost see the flow of water in the tank if you know what i mean! :thumbup:

I really must beg you to make the journey to derby one day with your camera kit once my lounge tank is grown in! :lol: :lol:

Re: "Prairie Lands"... diatoms.

love the pic, as Andy says you can just see that flow! The plants look super healthy. A couple of otos will soon sort the diatoms.

Re: "Prairie Lands"... dirty scrubber!

I've started up a you tube channel to alongside my vimeo channel.

you tube seems to get a massive amount of hits compared to vimeo (sadly)



anyway, the videos can be viewed in any size, all the way up to 1080p

Re: "Prairie Lands"... now on you tube

trim number 1.

I've hacked the foreground, to encourage new growth. After doing it, i quite like the low look. The thought of HC is crossing my mind at the minute o_O

diatoms are plaguing me at the moment, and are thoroughly doing my head in! :twisted:

Re: "Prairie Lands"... trim no.1

:lol:

my own fault mate....increased the lighting last week, removed some of the white tape!.... WRONG! big mistake. I'm paying for it now.

I should of listened to that mad little voice in my head.

Yeah, your right, HC would look silly. moss, sprinkled with hydracotle maybe? A rough look would look nice yet unruly...or chaotic :crazy:
