lovely setup m8, if real plants once they come on a bit it will look lush.

What type of substrate, CO2, ferts etc etc are you using?

I am using Eco-Complete, alot of CO2, I dose EI with 2x the phosphate and dose less KNO3. I use a Finnex Ray 2 LED fixture.

Eco complete is great substrate range, I used it for various biotypes. I first started to use the malawi subtrate for rifts.

Are you using soda stream bottles for CO2?

I found it more convenient to use soda stream, it wasnt much of a difference on price and easier to get.

Regarding macro and micro elements I found buying the powder an making it with water was far cheaper. I liked seachem stuff and always favor matrix for my filters but its expensive gear compared to others

The tanks are looking good.

Your tank looks crackin aswell mate, one thing that would make this setup stand out would be a large group of Paracheirodon axelrodi and then it will stand out pure peachy

Make you right there are about 20/25 neons in there, have never really gone for cardinals. This is my current flavour of the month.

Lovely fish bud these are still quite new in the market, 2006 I think they where introduced, may have even been later than that. I did get a small group of them once from:Aquatics to your Door : UK's Largest Online Tropical Fish Store

I know they where in the process of taxation, are they still classed as Microrasbora sp. 'Galaxy' or have finally been renamed as Danio margaritatus?
