    Hi Wei 12, Nice Scape(y) IMO I would forget the white sand will get dirty very quickly:( Glosso sounds good :D

    I totally agree with Roy. Even I had sand but ended up siphoning it out.

    Try to have a nice carpet with different shade of green which contrasts existing green. Maybe others can guide you well.

    NO SAND PLEASE
    Sand has its place and in a Aquascape that is not one of them.

    I would be very tempted to scatter over all the viable substrate small 5-10mm smooth river stones exactly the same colour as the substrate.

    Added serpaes, i bought 3 of them at first and they were chasing each other, now they don't seem to bother each other a lot after i increased their numbers to 9 :)

    Is it the lighting or my eyes but the substrate in the last small photo seems to have red colourings ?

    hi keith i believe the pics were taken same time & day.

    the reddish subs color could be cause by the camera or maybe it's just poncam.

    I really like serpae tetras. Great choice. Also, I think I kind of like the tank as it is, although glossa would look good too.

    Also, do you think you can change the white balance on your camera? the photos look a little yellow

    p.s. cory catfish would work great with the dirt foreground.
