Hello, Thank you for you welcoming comment. Just now resolving a log in problem had so couldn't comment earlier. Love the photos of your tanks - I have an angel too, but in another tank. Plus I love those healthy plants. Especially what I think is Cabomba in the first pic. I've only been able to grow java fern, water sprite, anacharis and sometimes lilies (no flowers on the water lilies, though). I'll blame my pleco but suspect there is a little more to it than that :)) I sent a vote your way.

Come visit me, Dana.

Hello!
Thanks for the congrats! How are you? Been busy around here, new pup keeps me going, and the cats are always a big help. The young cat and pup are my shadows and help with everything. I had no idea I shouldn't take out trash, or do housework or yard work, or shower, cook, etc without their help. Still not sure how I managed to get shoes on by myself either hehe. Fish tanks are doing fine, getting ready to finally get rid of my big clown loach so I can turn the 55 into a tank for Gobi-Wan. He's getting too big for that 20 and I'm ready for a change anyway. My brother is going to take the loach for me, got him hooked on fish about 2 years ago, he now has 5 tanks, lots of live plants etc etc and yup, he says it's all my fault hehe. Summer is coming and I'm not ready. I don't like heat! Never did though, so not like that's anything new hehe. Here's wishing you a delightful weekend!

Wow. Really amazing planting job. I appreciate what you said about my use of the plastic plants. I see why you prefer live plants because your picture is amazing and every time I see a photo of a well planted tank with real plants, it's impressive. I was trying to get that effect with the plastic ones and I'm glad you like it.

Thanks for the welcome
Sorry for the late response. I had some computer issues and couldn't connect to the internet for awhile. Thanks for the welcome. l enjoy browsing through your photos. I really like the plants in your aquarium as well as the fish. To your question about the white gravel. I have some apple snails in there. I am not sure if they do help clean the gravel, and I also use a vacuum pump to clean as well. But some areas I can't get to with the vacuum because of the plants but I have yet to experience the gravel getting dirty. This is my first time using white gravel. I have read that black/dark substrate is supposed to help bring out the color of the fish as they try to blend in with the back ground. I don't have any experience with a dark substrate to compare with the white substrate. The colors in the fish in my aquarium look just as brilliant as I see in other aquariums. Thanks again for the welcome!

Nicely planted and planed tank.
The plantings are in excellent condition. You have an aquatic green thumb. I have been giving a lot of thought to making Harry's 4 gal. tank into a Nano tank but haven't come up with a good idea for the aquascape. I know it takes time to get an established tank, and I figure Harry will help in the decision. I sent you a vote and hope to hear from you again.I'll post some pictures of Harry's new Nano tank once it is done.

Awesome planted tank
Thanks for the comments. How long did it take for your tank to become this established. Do you inject Co2? How do you keep algae in check?

THANK YOU!!!!!
Rumor has it FC and all the pet channels are about to go away, which is why there's not much happening on the site any more. I'm so sad! How's life in your world? Been busy around here. We got a new puppy last week, adopted from our local humane society. She's an 8mos old German Shepherd mix and is such a delight! We're all totally in love with her already. Well, the cats, not so much but it's all working out hehe. We finally got some winter weather here this year. Last 2 years we had dry and wildfires so seeing snow come along with freezing temps to keep it around has been very welcome. Besides, we don't get much here anyway, 8" about shuts the valley down. As I've lived in snow country most of my life, I find it rather humorous and plan my day accordingly so I don't have to deal with traffic or slippery roads. Guess that's about it for me, need to get some breakfast and finish laundry so I can get this happy hyper puppy out for a walk. Hope you have a good weekend!

Thanks for the vote and the encouragement. I voted for you as well. I'll be adding some live plants to my tank in the next couple days and I'll add a picture once I have them in. The plants in your tank are wonderful! I'm sure you have some very happy fish with all those places to hide.

I REALLY LIKE YOUR SITE LOVE YOUR TANK SET UP. I REALLY LIKE LIVE PLANTS AND ALL. IN MY EXPERIENCE WITH LIVE PLANTS THOUGH IS THAT I KEEP GETTING THOSE ANNOYING SNAILS. MY FISH STORE KEEPS TELLING ME THEY ARE GOOD FOR MY TANK AND THEY EAT ALGAE AND THAT THEY ARE NO HARM. I CANNOT SEEM TO GET RID OF THEM SO I GAVE UP ON IT. THEY MULTIPLY SO QUICKLY. SO I WENT BACK TO PLASTIC PLANTS, EVEN THOUGH I LOVE HOW LIVE PLANTS LOOK. I LIKE YOUR FISH VERY PRETTY. PLEASE COME VISIT MY PAGE ON HERE FISHLOVERTRP IS MY PAGE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Dwarfed Bacopa's where the first ones I planted.
Your right about them. They are my favorit out of the whole bunch
At first I had plans to add a CO2 systems but I haven't yet. From the look of things
I never will.

There are lots of variety of plants that do well without it.
Given you have a top of the line light ;)

Stopped by to give you more votes for your amazing work, and to drull over your pictures again.

Us planted tank folks got to stick together lol. /thumbs up

I see corydoras
Your fish list doesn't mention Cory's but the picture shows at least 3. I'm confused. Plants look great though.

Plants & Fish
Hi! That's the problem with a lot of the big fish, they tear the tank. My Red Devils will move gravel, wood and the rocks if they can, so at least once a week I redoing the gravel and ensuring the rocks and wood are stable so they can't move them around. I have a couple of 50 gallons that I'm thnking about starting back up as planted aquariums with some gentle fish, so I will be in touch. Leaving a vote your tank is so cool!
