the flurry of activity was the first thing I noticed too. Their fish live in the fast lane! ^_^

I've seen another one of Peachii's tanks, they're so pretty!

TY all we are getting better at this whole aquascaping thing and are shooting for more natural looking, my big tank is my big crazy tank with all the pretty flashy fishies, I really want to do a cichlid tank, those fish are beautiful but you can't really do plants with them they just tear them up so I go with the peaceful community fish, I used to have tiger oscars way back when Love those fish and I would suggest them to anyone,very fun fish and they are like having a dog in the way they interact, in fact I do believe they are called "river dogs" I will get me a big 125 gal tank sometime and get me a pair of them again. I need to do a vid of clowns' tank. he is my mutt veiltail he is next to me he is truely a great little fish he just got an upgrade on his tank he was in a 1.5 gal now he is in a aquaeon evolve 2 it has much better lighting than his old tank and he seems as happy as a pea in a pod in it. going to wait for his plants to grow a bit then I will post one

but, but, it would be awesome to watch the landscape fill out! lol

I know I get pretty discouraged when I see all of these AMAZING planted tanks here, and I'm such a plant killer!

I really want to do natural biotopes for my aquatic beasties too, so I'll be watching your tanks too for ideas once we move and I find a green thumb. ;)

Well anytime you want a list of plants we have sucess with let us know, the only tricky one so far for us is "water weed" aka anacharis it doesnt so much like the warmer water betta tanks but does fine in my big tank

oh man, Anacharis goes Charlie Brown's Christmas tree on me! I even melted water sprite, and killed off DUCKWEED! I think it's our water here. I used to be at least somewhat able to keep plants... -pout-
