2006.12.30 55 Gallon - Here's a nice close-up of the left side of the 55 gallon tank. The peace lily is actually visible in this shot, and if you look hard enough, you can see the giant vals at the rear of the tank. My original thought had been to plant them all along the rear of the tank, to provide a sort of backdrop. I hadn't anticipated them growing like mad, and blocking the light.

Next time I'll just paint the back black.

There are three generations of platies in this photograph. I've also done a massive pruning of the wisteria. It had been the primary light blocker before this, but after its removal, the giant vals took over. Well, at least the valls sell better.
