See that's the thing, most people are their own harshest critics when it comes to art.

100's of us could tell you these are perfect, exquisite, beautiful and so on, but you may always see a flaw. Just something that creative types get to deal with I guess.

They're still some purty pitchers though :P

Thank you Matt...

I just think that the setup from the camara maybe improved so that there's no shades or imperfect colors (this camara is still new for me). It's hard to take pictures to someone that´s almost always moving and inside a place (tank) that as a lot of reflections.

Hope I've explained myself right.

UPDATE! ;)

After some time away due to honeymoon B) and 8 days without seeing my "Astro" I arrived home last week and besides being more sensible to movements and noise, running instantly for cover, he´s doing fine. I left the automatic feeder on for one supply a day.

As already had thought before, and after one first try to have some nice plants in the tank that failed due to low quality of the plants and also not having proper light and fertilization (I think), have planted some new plants and this time they are strong for a good start. I have chosen 2 Anubias barteri, 1 Valisneria and 1 Amazon Sword. They look real good but its hard to fix the roots of the Valisneria and Amazon due to having no bottom fertilizer. The Anubias are fixed to a rock and some wood by thin lines.

So far "Astro" enjoys the new home and loves hidding behind the Valisneria over the large rock in the corner but I think he as given some bites on the Amazon.

I've put the lights on for 8H, half the time with the 2 high power lamps and the other half only has the lower power lamp on, before had it only for 6H and just with the lower power lamp. Have putted some Sera Florenete A and adding Flora day drops each day and algae is increasing already.



HOW MUCH LIGHT SHOULD I HAVE and What type of fertilizer should I use and how often?


Here are some pictures:
