Those shots are a few months old, the plants have grew more into a jungle, but Silfire can still get around easily. I made him a cave out of two driftwood, he usually goes in there at night to sleep and comes out in the day time. The best part about his home is the nematodes, small worms that are half an inch, that lives in the substrate. I'm not really sure what the name of the nematode is, but Silfire sure loves to eat them whenever he gets the chance. They're usually lodged in the gravel, but every now and then I see one or two floating about in the water column and they become snacks.

WOW! Very nice! tell me, what kinds of plants do you have in there? And what bulb do you use? the tank looks so good, nice job!

Thank you. Actually the plants are the basic low light plants: Water Wisteria, Java Fern, Java Moss, Cryptocoryne Lutea, Anubias, and a marimo moss ball. The light fixture I have is just the standard incandescent kind (two socket for two incandescent bulb), but I replaced the bulbs with two 15watts spiral compact fluorescent. This light setup is very cheap and works great.

I use a number of "Tall Anubias (ANUBIAS FRAZERI) in my tanks & just LOVE them!!! They are VERY easy and have the same requirements (or lack of) of any other anubias. And do NOT plant them just like other anubias species!!! :)
