    Made the decision a few weeks ago to go with altum angels rather than discus in my "weeds" tank. I've made a few changes to the 'scape too. Anyway a few quick snaps of the new and quite small altum angels :) I'll try and get some proper shots later, these were taken using the tank lights so I've bumped the ISO up to 2000 here.

    like that paul, very tidy, I'm sure they will not stay small for too long;) will be interesting when I get mine and they eventually go in with the big lads to see how they get on.
