My First Pic.

Well, I'll give this a shot. :-*

These are some of my fish in what was an experimental planted aquarium (80 gals). It had 1/2" of sand. I grew all sorts of plants in the tank, to see how they would grow (or not!) :-)

I let some stem plants go "wild" in there (grow extensive root structures) and would "train" others(cut tops and replant). It was a "big green mess," but I had fun doing it, and I hope to have learned enough to successfully (?) go on to the next step of having a true planted aquarium with a more extensive substrate and a minimum of algae. Pray for me! LOL! :-)

Plants in the pic include Ambulia, Christmas Moss and temporarily unattached Wendelov Ferns.

The pic isn't the best, but it's a start. :-)

Does anyone here know how to photograph fast-moving fish? The only way I thought I could do so was with the flash -- otherwise, they were just a blurr. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
