Another great looking tank, do you use all real plants or a mixture of fake and real. I currently only use real ones only touble is that they grow so much I am for ever haveing to go in and remove it.

Hence my question as I am thinking about using a mixture when I get my new tank.... In the process of moving and have been given the go ahead for a 6 footer when we've settled and decorated Very Happy Very Happy

cheers

Really lovely home for the newcomers. They surely will like it! 2.5ft Planted tank 1153438146

As for fake plants, would like to know what you prefer: silk or plastic?
Asking, cos I heard that keeping silk is rather troublesome. Is that right?

nice tank. is that a real rock you have used for the split level? I did this once and was reallu happy with the result using some wood and rocks. I just find it hard to find rocks the right size and shape

Did a total overhaul on this tank, had a major algae outbreak, plus everything was overgrown and looking pretty ordinary *L*

Inhabitants:
Amun and Isis - Blue Ram pair
Romeo and Juliet - Gold ram pair
A few juvie peps
Juvie apple snails
Cherry shrimp

Hi;
Looks like you have some nice and healthy Rams.
Any hassles with them. I have heard they can be a little bit tricky.
Marty Very Happy

Thanks guys Smile

No hassles what so ever. I've found them to be quite tolerant. The Blue pair has spawned, not raised the fry as yet. The gold pair have been in a community tank so dunno if they had spawned in the past.

Since moving the gold pair into her after the rescape, the colours of all rams has improved even more. I assume this is a territory thing. They truely are a gorgeous little fish!
