Scroll over the pic (in photobucket) and a drop down tool bar should appear. click on resize and pick either medium or large.

Its beautifully planted, I love the landscaping, and the angel looks to be okay, although I am not sure how well they do in a 20 gallon, I hope he can grow normally, I would call your tank a miniture sized underwater forest,

By the way to view the picture just click on this link:

I really like the combo of plants! If you can find something that has a reddish hue and add it I think it would bring out a nice contrast with your angel. And ditto on Ciklido's comment regarding the angel and tank size.

hehe thanks for the nice comments Very Happy
errr... about the red plants... I did have some 2 weeks ago but I took it out as I'd noticed that its not true aquatic -.-
I was considering maybe adding a red tiger lotus.. but its probably too big...
The angelfish or angels ( I hav 2 in the tank ) r doing quite well actually but I'm actually looking for a 55G+ tank in the near future..

Very Happy

If your planning on a 55gal you can get the bigger plants and just move them over when they get too big. I think there are several small plants with interesting color. Of course this is just my opinion and you don't have to do it its your tank not mine Wink

Any plant with red in it that is not in a high light situation will likely lose all of it's red color and just turn green (and/or eventually die).

Not sure what the lighting is in your tank, but I just thought I'd throw that out there. Wink

You have a very nice looking tank (though I wouldn't exactly consider a 20g a "nano" tank, LOL). Glad to hear the angels will be moving... a pair would likely prove disasterous in a 20g.

As per the Photo Album rules you need to make the photo appear in the first post of the topic. Moved here until you can resize the image and embed it in your message above...
