Got a few new Plants today; I know some of them are technically not true Aquatic Plants, (Drachnia, Umbrella Ferns) but they are very cheap and I needed to spruse up the greenery; I filled 3 Tanks with Plants for 4pounds. ; Wysteria, Ferns, Cabomba, Amazon Swords.......

I really like that hollow rock with the holes in it that's pictured with the Platinum Angels. Is it natural?

Thanks Samzuk!;

POS_Miniracer; Yes, the Rock is natural, I bought it at an Aquatics Shop quite a few years ago.......the BN plecs keep it Algae-free and there are usually a few Gold ones residing it it.

I had to take the decor out in order to catch some Cichlids yesterday, so I thought I'd take a few close-up pics of that Rock for you 'POS_miniracer' (Tom, isn't it?)......here they are....

Looking good Ross.
Your young electric blue rams............did you breed them yourself? I really love the look of those but the only half decent store selling them near me wants stupid prices for them.

@ Malakye (Candise?)
Re: 'Electric Blue Rams'; No I didn't breed them, I bought them along with the Angels, Aspito Borelli + Cockatoo Dwarfs from a fantastic Breeder; I've got 5 EBR's which are far bigger/brighter than in those Pic's now.....I paid about 2.50each; he sells them at anything up to 12.00 each now though...........+ They are for sale in a Local Aquatics Shop for 16.00 each - Adults ........

If I get a Pair out of these 5, you can have some young for cheapish in the future.....people are charging extortionate prices due to the 'new on the scene' vibe with these......I believe they just came about a year ago and the Breeders are keeping the females for themselves.
