9 more neons. Fantastic! Since your not running CO2, I'd still dose Flourish Excel. It works very well and is close to CO2.

Your hardscape is amazing! You have a flair for this. I saw pictures of a tank planted in the Dutch style recently, with the driftwood protrusions creating divisions between species, and your hardscape definitely reminds me of that.

This is making me want a bigger tank, sigh.

Thanks I kinda got lucky, if I had the hardscape I originally wanted the tank would have WAY less wood. I will definitely look for some excel as this algae is becoming a huge nuisance. Quick question do you know if I could keep german blue rams and gold rams in the same tank or is there a risk of aggression/hybrid-fugly offspring? Just 1 in there currently and no idea if it's m or f.

I'd just keep one or the other. They would probably do fine, but considering the size of your tank, I'd do just a single or pair of one or the other.

quick question Paulo, I am planning my own npt, and I have this tank I bought from a thrift store, problem is, I don't know what size it is. I think it's about the same size of your tank, so could you measure the hieght, length, and width of yours, and tell me? That way if mine matches I will know what size my tank is:) thanks

I love your tank. I think your mother saying it was depressing was hilarious. I bet she likes it now. One thing you might consider. Putting some background behind the aquarium. I know a lot of people don't do this but it doesn't need to be fancy. Maybe just a solid color. It might show your aquarium even better besides the wall behind it.
