Nice looking tank
It will keep looking better when you start to get some grow on the new plants
Good job with the tankIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Thanks, yeah I'm going to try to stay on top of my pruning to keep the plants compact. I'm not particularly hopeful for a lot of growth with only 1 watt per gallon, but it's all I have.

Took some photos of my cherry barbs tonight. They've matured a lot since I got them - the females are rather rotund! (and much easier to get snaps of than the excitable males)
The dominant female showing some nice red fins.
Piggy fish posing.
...and some barbel action on a male.

Cheers! I did photography in school which put me onto a good footing...and having an SLR camera helps a bit.

+ 1 to what fishmommie said! If I ever write a book on tropical fish I want you to provide the pictures. Great job.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

Did a bit of fiddling today whilst replanting a bit of grass the cories had uprooted again (they seem obsessed with it...which is sweet, but quite annoying).
After seeing a seminar on aquascaping last week which included a section on flow rate and filter intake/output positioning, I decided to switch the side that the spraybar was on. This way it's at the same end of the tank as the intake. I'll have to monitor for any "dead zones" to see where the bits and pieces end up.
Doesn't look much different, although the new plants have taken quite well in the week they've been in. I'll have to replace the paper backing soon as a few drips down the back has made it go wrinkly. Oops.
Phosphates were reading zero again so I've fed a whole block of frozen food to give that a boost. I appear to have some very hungry plants.

it's a truly beautiful tank! And I can't WAIT to get down to 0 phosphates in my 90 so I can quit messing with diatoms LOL

I'm thinking about putting in some sort of giant val in the back right-hand corner. The vals I have are a little short and tend to melt before they get more than 15-20cm tall. I could move the ones I have forward a little bit and get some giants for the back.
