    Hi everyone.
    This is my other little tank that I have. It doesn't get nearly as much attention as my other one. I feed the fishes and that's about it.
    I do a WC every now and then when I feel like it, and it's always Algae free which I like alot.
    It's got loads of moss... i think 3 types all mixed up. Some Java fern and Anubia's. And only one 8watt tube.
    And there lives a couple of White Clouds and Albino buenos aries tetra's in there.

    I like dark tanks, and this ones looks to have an almost mysterious atmosphere.

    It's really kewl once a low maintenance tank settles down and just takes on a life of it's own, leaving you to sit back and enjoy the view!

    Well done Izak.
    ;D

    Looks really cool! How long did it take to grow into that?

    I think it's like this for about 4-5 months. SO it's still fairly new. I wanna see the fern grow a little bit bigger. But the plants was in my high light tank for a while so it certainly helped it spread fairly quick.
    Glad you guys like it. ;)
