    Taking some more time I could have set up this shot better. I will try to get another better picture tomorrow.

    Thanks so much! Oh yeah there are lots of fish in there. I just did not take the time to set up that quick shot and they were all hiding in the back.

    I hope to do some more careful picture-taking here pretty soon.

    Is there any trick to keep the glass near the water surface clean? I mean water evaporates and you get this white lime edges..

    I usually don't have much trouble with that. I give this setup a light service twice per week and while doing the partial water change I also clean that front pane of glass.

    Here is another new FTS. I took some more time to make sure I go the fish in the frame.

    Gosh I haven't been back here in such a long time.

    I still have tanks set up. Here is a quick shot of the planting in my Mr. Aqua 11.4G tank. The foliage has grown in nice and full.

    Thanks you guys.

    Hi Garuf sorry no I have not left the hobby I just had not been around here in a while.

    Here is another a bit better shot of that same foliage. There are some nice plants in that setup.

    Very nice looking plants, but I am curios what is that plant with green leaves similar to bamboo.

    Thank you!

    Hey thanks ghostmonk. The Mr. Aqua is doing great so far. It sure was a good bargain.

    Here is a quick FTS of the 11.4G Mr. Aqua.

    Thanks again ghostmonk. Oh yes I wondered if I knew you from somewhere else with a different handle. Do you have any of your projects journaled over here?

    Here is another shot from last night of the setup in the 11.4G tank. The plants have grown in nice. At the moment I have just a single Crenichla pike cichlid in there. I intend to add some more showy fish that will contribute to the whole scape.
