    thats grown in really well and is looking great. have you thought about swapping the stems and the java fern around so you get more of a slope from left to right?

    I'm liking it! I know this is a bit weird, but it just looks a bit green. Obviously it's going to look green...but it just looks very green to me. Maybe it's just the photos.

    Use Photoshop or The Gimp. Reduce green, add some blue, done.

    I have just got 8 black neons, when in the sop i thought there would be enough but now they are in the tank they lookk tiny :rolleyes: I will be getting another 8 i think, great fish.

    I have euthanised the endlers because they were deformed and were not suitable to sell on or take back etc. I use the ice cold water method, went much better than expected, soon as they touch the water they instantly knocked out, i was worried i were going to do it wrong :crazy:

    some half decent photos:

    Nice! I'm not sure I would have chosen the same fish choice, but they are great fish all the same.

    I know what you mean about them looking small once they're in the tank, I get that all the time! I think it's because there's so many fish in such small tanks at the shop.

    saintly, looking at your tank pictures I just realized that in my nano tank I'll have to put my Hemianthus Micranthemoides in the BG instead of the mid-ground. Too much growth for just 24cm (9") of height. Funny I bought it to be a FG plant. :)

    Thanks for the inspiration, mate.

    About 3 months, until glosso too over it, but it didn't grow much in those 3 months and most of it turned dark green at one stage.

    :lol: OK, it was Aaron after all. I was so happy to find the solution that I didn't look.
    And you confused me with your photoshop tricks and posting modified pictures of Aaron's tank.... :) ;)
