    Very pretty! Do you plan to add any more fish to your setup?

    Thanks Hippiechick - I'm not going to add any more to this tank. The silver dollars and angelfish are doing great together and I'm tryin to grow them out. The only problem I'm having is with the silver dollars eating all of the live plants. Need to transplant some of my larger plants from some of my other tanks into this one.

    Ah, I'd say he's just trying to be a jerk to get attention. Just my opinion, of course ;)

    Awesome tanks! Hey Mike, I like the effect of putting lighter marbles over the darker gravel. Now I wish I had a bigger tank...

    beautiful aquarium mike! i love the columns! do you think you could get us a close-up of one of your silver dollars? i was told my fish were black skirts when i bought them, but they are translucent during the day, and only turn black when its night-time. Then this morning I found this website with a picture of a silver dollar, which looks just like my smaller of the two "black skirts."

    as soon as my tank is cycled and "all's well" i'm going to put some of my tank photos in this section. i'm superstitious ;)
