I thought i would share a recent shot from a 178 gallon i have had set up for about a year now. Unfortunately, the layout has gotten way out of control.  The busy summer got in the way of me shooting the tank at its sweet spot.

Here is a cropped shot of the tank...

Wow!!  Thanks for all the awesome feedback!! Smiley

Lizon:  They are red phantoms.  I was unsure about them with the lemons because i thought the school might mix, but they really compliment each other very well.  The lemons chill around the mid area and the phantoms just below that.  I havent kept them with black phantoms so i cant comment on that, however.

Thanks again everyone!

That is such an odd tank size - is it a custom built tank, or a 200 g with allowances made for substrate/contents?

Its awesome to see an aquarist who takes into consideration both the well being of their fishes and plants - most of the time they choose just one, lol good on you, man.

As always Jason, great looking aquarium.

Let me know when the "little lady" will cut you loose on a weekend - I'll "assist" you in landscaping one of my aquariums (either the 75 or 150).

That is a beautiful sized tank for 'scaping ..
that 30" from front to back really must make quite a difference... it is almost 2 cubes together...
Did you get a new camera???

Those are beautiful Tetras...stunning in those larger schools!!
What other occupants are in that tank?? I am assuming that it is lightly stocked...

I actually read your post on APC when you were first setting it up and having a bunch of people over to decorate your tank.  Did you ever get the angels? or you decide to stick with just the lemon tetra (and red phantom now also  Wink)

Awesome tank btw Wink

Ruthy - Currently I am using a Nikon D700.  The lens for the fish shots was the Nikon 105mm Macro.

Ashraf - Thanks for the comment on taking care of the fish.  I will be the first to tell anyone i have very little fish knowledge.  That being said, i am very serious about providing a healthy environment for them to live in.

Ed - If we can invite your club along and tern it into an event, im in!!  Smiley

Belinda + Ysteb - I made a mistake in how i posted the dimensions.  The tank is 60W x 24 deep x 30 high.

Belinda - I have had the d700 for two years now....i had a d80 before that.

Livestock
50 lemon
20 phantoms
10 sids
10 otos
20 panda cories

Winn0923 - no i never went with angels due to the temp i keep the tank.  Also, i had to admit to myself that i would not be able to care for angels the way they deserve to be cared for.

Lizon - It took over 300 shots to get those two lemons to "stand still."  Smiley

Again, thank you to everyone for the amazing comments!
