*jaw drops* That is a gorgeous tank! I love the minimalist style of a few plants and a piece of thin driftwood.

Alright, I am convinced that Brazilians are great fish-keepers (and photographers).

What are the tank occupants? I see seraoe tetras, I think. The ram and pleco (?) are also in the tank?

What kind of plants do you have? I really like that grass-type plant.

I am jealous of so many things right now. One, your pleco, two, your rams, three, actually just your whole tank and four, your camera. Those are such good shots! What kind of pleco is that?

Amazing. I love the photo of the two rams flaring at eachother. The tank also looks great with the simple, but striking aquascape and the beautiful fish.

WOW Shocked wow, wow, wow, wow and wow!

Beutiful tank! What is your stocking list? I see serpaes, black neons?, GBR, pleco, otos, cory and pencilfish? Great looking tank!

Those closeups are great, what camera do you use? What is the amount of maintainance you do on this tank? Fertilizers? Any hints on making a tank look this good?
Oh, and glad to see some Brazilians switching over, you guys have the coolest tanks!
Jacko Very Happy

Thank you Jacko!

My camera is a Canon Powershot A430, it's not a fancy camera but Canon Macros are Awesome! About the maintainance, I do only a weekly water change and clean the glasses. I don't use any Liquid fertilizers.

Don't forget to do the maintainance, choose well your fishes and plants and Study very much! The only hint I can give you.

Wow, all that in such a minimalistic tank!? It doesn't even look like that much. That is something I would love to see in person.

(And the oto in your avatar is so cute. Very Happy)

Hi Luna, some of the plants in the list are too small to appear in the photo yet but they will appear soon!

Yeah, I love Otos. They are such good models for photographs! Here's my favorite Oto picture:



This one I colected in a river:



Thank you again for the comments.

Ps.: Sorry about any english mistake Very Happy

That's the other thing I was going to say. It's amazing that you can collect such great fish on your own. I'm sure lots of Brazilians can do so, but it fascinates me since I am not able to do so. (I'll just get ugly stuff like bass or something.)

Oh, and your English is great. Don't worry about mistakes. Wink
