    Hey there

    Herewith some pics of my 30l tank I use for my plants to develop. Normally when I get a new small piece of plant, I just throw it in here and it grows at a rapid pace. The health of this tank is just gr8 as I have never lost a plant or fish in this tank yet. I only have a small dolphin internal filter in there with a uber-bright smallish light (think its a jebo 8w). Substrate is 3 to 4cm fine silica sand

    Nice little setup. Quite ironic that you've got a "Marine Wallpaper"!!:bigsmile:

    oh yes, lol....that was the only wallpaper i had for the tank at the time (was still in the very beginning phases of fish-keeping). But ok, I'll leave it on, doesn't do any harm and besides, who has time to look at backgrounds when you can look at aquatic plants? :)

    also they're rather fat...

    - thinking it could be the light that was on through the night? and them being scared of the female siamese fighter...
