Love that rimless tank. I was going to buy one like that but I am afraid of acrylic.

that is a really nice tank. I like how the sides are clear, and all of the rocks and plants are bunched up in the middle. It's different from what you normally see, and it looks great. Firemouths are neat too, and your fish look great.

Actually, the tank is made of glass. I too have an aversion to the scratchy nature of acrylic however its super duper clarity over glass is awesome. Maybe my next tank will be a 3 sided starphire.

Maclellan, I have bigger pics but then you would be able to see the diatom algae that's attacking the plants currently! I'm also suffering from a little thread algae here and there. Trying out Tom Barr's non-CO2 method and am dosing KNO3 and KH2PO4 along with Seachem Flourish. The algae is not super duper crazy but its a little more than I would like. I am most likely going to add a small school of Otocinclus to see what they can do.
