    Awesome stuff!

    I have the same tank, and it doesn't look nearly as good.

    Beautiful tank Cory, love all the greenery!
    Besides awesome lighting, what's a top way to ensure healthy plants? If you could give just one suggestion, what would it be?

    That looks great! Doesn't a curved tank hurt your eyes though?

    It looks exactly the same as flat glass, especially on this corner tank.


    My bullet shape has a bit of a weird distortion, but it's more the water than the glass, can't say it hurts my eyes.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys!! I really appreciate it!!

    Madam:- Lighting is obiously a key factor to healthy plants. But I think that if you have a good sandy substrate and good filtration your plants will be very healthy!!

    LiftCrazy:- No it doesnt hurt my eyes. Ive always like curved glass.

    thanks Cory, easy to take advise when you can see the results... your plants look beautiful.

    Must say, I also like the curved glass.

    Wow thanks so much for all your responses. I really love my freshwater tank and im so happy that other people do too!!

    Dean:- I got the tank 4 years ago for R3500 which included lights, pump, filter, stand and heater. Scince then i would quess that i have spent R2000 on fish and about R1500 on plants. So overall i think i have spent over R7000 getting this setup like it is today.
