Nothing special to add really. Just took a picture today and noticed I happened to do it right on day number 100. Figured it may be worth posting. Also, if anyone hasn't seen my other thread asking what my two new plants are, if you have any idea please do tell. I'll post day 94 again here so you can see the new growth in a week without having to go back to the last page. I've already trimmed my hornwort at least three times or so, that stuff grows like no other.
Day 94 (again)

Well, this is big news in my book, but probably not so much in yours . I finally figured out how to tweak the settings on the camera to get my pictures as close to realistic as I think the camera will allow.
Oh, and I also officially converted my 20 gallon tank to a planted tank today, so here is the link to my new journal for that as well if you're interested...

Day 104. So here is the picture of my tank as you normally would have seen it in my updates.
And now, the more realistic-looking, not-washed-out version . This is about as realistic to what I see as I could get it. There may be a few more settings I could mess with that I'm not aware of, but this is a major improvement compared to what my other pictures look like.
It's still very slightly washed out at the immediate top of the water level and the color isn't exactly dead on to what I'm seeing, but it's pretty damn close. Anyway, I'm happy I finally figured this stuff out lol. I'll have to try tweaking a few more things on the next camera shoot to see if I can get some actual life-like pictures.
Edit: and I just realized that if you click on the picture to enlarge it, it looks a lot clearer than it does in the thread. It doesn't even get noticeably bigger, but the clarity improves. I'd recommend clicking on any of the pictures you want to get a clearer look at.

Not really much to report at this point. The tank kind of reached a climax and there's not much more I can do to it. I did, however, move the betta out of the tank and into my 20 gal. My puffer finally started getting aggressive and was nipping at him; knew it was too good to be true . Keeping an eye on the harlequins, but they seem to be avoiding him well enough for now.
Anyway, today I did a lot of trimming to let some of the plants grow and fill out the tank better, especially with my hornwort which likes to get brown anywhere that's not on the surface. My other mystery plant is taking off just as well and I think I may replace the hornwort entirely with it, I think it looks nicer anyway.
Doesn't look so pretty right now and I didn't have time to mess with the camera settings again, so the next update will probably be when it fills out and I have some time to take some better pictures again
