That's looking really beautiful. I'd be so happy to own a tank like that. You are the oppposite to me, lots of beautiful healthy plants and a fab tank with few fish, whereas I have too many fish with no plants and an alright tank. I don't know but are the plants taking from the fish? What do you think? Lovin it but lackin 1 or 2 more fishy friends? Great job tho' and I'm brutal I know :roll:

i'm going to add some more Rasboras soon, plus some more Shrimps and one more Honey Gourami. i'm also thinking of some Rainbow fish, but not sure yet... i kind of like the Blue neon Rainbow..

They don't really have the ''name tag'' on it.. so.. you'll have to try guess what the plants are.

But to be fair, i wouldn't buy any more plants from Ikea again.. just go to a local Petshop, Seahorse Aquarium in Redcow, and ''fantastic aquatics'' in Dun Laoghaire or in Maxizoo in Clearwater shopping centre in Finglas. they have some nice plants in there.

Well that's just beautiful. If my tanks looked half as good as yours I'd be happy. :)
