This is probably the nicest small tank in this page...Love the plants and the way your tank is dark on the edges and bright in the center..Congratulations!!Keep it up, your fish will appreciate it... fish avatar
nice stargrass, I thought about getting some but I ran out of room in my jungle, lol. Also nice use of color and shape. fish avatar
Mike, thanks for the comment. On average, it is not all that time consuming (5-10 min. a day). But there are times you have to pay a lot of attention to it (usually in the first 3 months) and others where it seems to run great on autopilot (once established). Good luck! fish avatar
I lve it, keep up the good work. By the way is keeping a planted aquarium really time consuming? fish avatar
