    I've been playing with it for 8 months or so and am finally happy with the layout. Right now i'm having a starphire 36*18*18 built. I'm addicted.

    Go to the aquatic photos section, upload your pics, then use the embed feature on your post.

    I like the tank, nice use of a small space, especially with low light.

    Yup, that's correct. Just go to our ASW Photo Gallery, upload your photo, and copy/paste the complete url to your picture withing the the IMG tags. I went ahead and uploaded one of the photos for you.

    Some parts of the scape look a little unbalanced in terms of blending of the plants, but your planted aquarium looks nice with healthy plants. I would work more on filling in the the left side, and getting the downoi to work better with the scape. I especially like the massive amounts of crypts in the background. Good job!

    Thanks replying guys. That tank i've just been experiementing with. The hygro grows like a weed but everything else is quite a bit slower. I bought fluorite today and i may see how that helps. I didn't really plan that scape. Pretty much just pieced it together getting this here and that there. The tank right now has alot of algae. I've taken more initiative and have been adding ei more effectively and checking the water parameters every day to see whats wrong. Planted tanks are not easy thats for sure. Right now i'm building a DIY background to set up a 5 gallon palaudarium. Just another little experiement. I'm also trying to harvest daphnia. This hobby is far too addictiing for me. Could be worse though.
    Regards
