Hey, looks very nice! I like how you've made sure there's lots of hiding places et al... have you considered going for real plants? Most are not as difficult to keep as some people make out and really add to the tank and keep those nitrates low ;)

I personally feel that plants are part of getting everything right for the fish, but I also can understand the worries most people have about them. If you give me a shout when you feel ready, I can send you some of the easier ones to try :yu:

Looks nice, hope you get enough courage to try real plants. The lower light plants are pretty easy to start out with.
