ok a few up dates. it's been just over a week almost 2 since this was set up. hopefully you can see from the following images that theres a hint of summer?...in the scape. i think the rotala adds a sense of happiness. there 4 ottos and 6 amano shrimp to help with any early diatoms and they must be doing a good job because theres no signs of the stuff! the main focal fish i think, cardinals!
