No problem with hiJACKing threads, I do not mind. It's just it took me a while to get it. Cheesy I was busy taking pics of my tank. Maybe in 10 minutes will upload them.

SILENTIUM Ladies, I am opening and closing my mouth fishy like ( wonder they don't get a jaw lock ) gasping.

Let us see the presentation Max will have prepared soon.  Cheesy

So, while ladies behave like girls, us, gentlemen, produce some art:

(it's a pity I can't write some comments underneath the picture).

1st - the overall view on the tank, Kara is moving and with a slow shutter speed she becomes a ghost.

2nd - a closer look on the corner with Kara, same problem here with movement.

Both pics taken with a DSLR on a tripod...

Kara is a very, very beautiful Comet Lady.
I like how you re arranged the woods and the plant.

What have you got there in the corner in the bag?

Biological media. I have 4 of these in the filter but they are becoming old and used so I want to replace with these ones underneath the filter.

Hey, this is not a bad idea, so bacteria are settled in there already and you can change it without launching a mini cycle.

Thank you. I am not sure but the person who gave it to me said it was 10G. Actually we could measure it and then do some maths and know for sure. But I am pretty convinced it is still a 10G tank.

Yes that is the idea. Do some swapping. Later I could put in there some activated carbon as well. We shall see.

it is impossible to keep them posing you so i did a trick - camera on a tripod, boosted ISO to 800 so to increase shutter speed, did a series of shots while Kara stayed in one pace. Sort of stayed as she is quite an active lady.

Aw Kara is such a sweet looking fish.
I do like the position of the driftwood and the plant on top of it Cheesy
What type of plant is that?

Actually these are two pieces of wood - a sort of branch which is lighter in color is placed on top of the other one (darker), behind this wood there is a fake plant and on topn of the dark piece of wood there is an Anubias nana live. I would like to add a few more Anubias later.

I find using a large lump of S.American hardwood ( can't remember exact name) stops excessive algae formation


note to above: plants absorb CO2 both Day AND night, they do not ever take up O2 (leguminous plants can also "fix" nitrogen)
