someone ~ I like the look of it, the fish actually do not use the middle part much, the Angels prefer in amongst the plants, the loaches play a bit in the center though

Callatya ~ Thanx. The riffle shrimp i got from my lfs :)

Newest pic ~ settling nicely. Though i am about to redo it, i want to drop the substrate down, add some Dino Dung, then retop with plain gravel. Plants also needs some shuffling, taller to back etc. Will be a little while though, as i'm waiting for DD to arrive.
