    Finally have made the jump to tropical from goldies and so far am enjoying it. Slowly building up my stock but this will be the states when all is said and done/

    Filter: AC70 (backed off due to flow dribbling on back edge of canopy, will be trimmed soon), AC30 (currently in use on make shift pond until weather cooperates) in the interim an AC20 is in it's place
    Substrate: Flourite black sand
    Decor: driftwood, rocks
    Plants: 1 amazon sword (another will be added), 2 other unknown plants


    1 pair angels (not yet added)
    3 bolovian ram (hopefully 1m 2f but not sure yet)
    10 bloodfin tetra (only 5 to date transferee from 5.5g)
    1 BN pleco (not added)
    16 amano shrimp (8 to date)


    A hard to get shot of one of the smaller rams. Only added yesterday so still rather timid.

    Very nice tank. I want to do some driftwood also, it makes the tank look so much better.

    I agree I decided to go all natural this time around, no fake "wood", rocks or plants. I have a lot of fake ornaments to get rid of from years of changing ornaments in my old 20g.

    Good job. I really like the roots/wood on the left & the way you used the big stones. :;hf

    Thanks everyone, this was my first real crack at aquascaping and I think it turned out pretty good in the end.

    Finally got a clearer shot of a ram. They seem to like moving exactly when I want to take the picture.

    Great looking tank!
    Is the driftwood Manzanita?

    The branch one I couldn't tell you it was in a LFS screwed to a piece of slate, the rest are Malaysian driftwood.
