    Your tank looks fantastic! I love your angel and tetras, too. What are those big white rocks? They really add a "kick" to your aquascaping.

    The white rocks are white granite, they are really cheap (because they form most of any land mass) and they come in loads of suttle coulors, iv got a green 1 in my wifes tank. i'll post some pics of that when i find some time, thanks for the comments people.

    Hi, I am not sure about the gravel though. I doubt if the substrate would add to the growth of live plants. Let us know what kind of substrate u have used and if it helps plant growth without rotting. otherwise looks great. Keep it up.

    Fern should be attached to wood or rock so that the roots can access nutrients direct from the water, not the "substrate" or gravel, i chose my other plants (with advice from the shop) on that same basis, currently im using nutrafin plant gro (once a week), i cant realy comment on how good it is yet iv only been planted for a week but the plants look alot better than when they went in.
