Really nice Mark. Guess the 'ghost' look has really tickled you :)

Glad you didn't go for the black ones, don't think they would look that great in your tank... in hindsight anyway ;)

I`ve been enjoying this tank without making comment for a while now, Mark, but am not overly keen on your choice of fish for this scape. The fish could become too dominant, and out of balance with the rest of the look, plus I am not too big a fan of hybrid fish myself.

Still, it`s your money and your choice. You certainly are mastering the art of aquascaping!

Dave.

fair comment dave. :D these fish were not specifically for this scape though. there for the next scape. i do see your point though. i was thinking the same thing realy this morning....when i change the scape agian (not this time around) i dont want to incorporate these fish, so i guess in the future i'll be selling them.

very kind thing to say. allthough i dont see it myself. it apears ive made many an error in the henge, and ive only chucked this scape together and then it was never a scape just a holding tank that looks ok.

but still kind of you to think it :D my first years scaping out of the way more to come ;)

Ive never had much luck with angel fish.

its still early days for me too.

ive had a trim of the stems. ive left the ones to the right as it creates a little area that the angels like to use. anyways heres some more pics of the angels.

the first pic is a bit unlucky cus i was shooting at 2.8 hence the fish going out of focus. oh well....

what do you shoot at?

pigeons :D

f2.8. i like the depth it gives, but the downfall is it's limitations with depth of field. look at the six angels...the first one in focus and as they all sit at different depths (can be as narrow as a cm) the others are out of focus which is not pleasing. i shouldn't of posted the pic really :?

The bigger the aperture does the DOF increase?
