. What do y'all think?
I like it, looks natural. As far as proper way? I have to say this... I think there ARE certain things to follow. I mean don't dump a bunch of rocks in a tank and call it day, place them properly as to make sure they will not fall and crack your tank or even worse. Also you want to give your fish some free swimming room so don't pack the tank to the point where they have no where to go.
Another note, add some thruways, tunnels etc, fish like to swim through and around things. Give them a place to hide if they feel threatened or uneasy. I guess these are my opinions only... Maybe?
As far as taste:
Colorful rocks,neon plants,sponge bob theme, Legos, whatever... That's all up to you, you have to stare at it I don't, as far as people being to opinionated, that very well may be BUT I have to say this.
You post a picture of your tank and all its glory, you ask total strangers on a fish forum what they think, your going to get opinions of all kinds. Some harsher then others. I don't think it's unfair if someone doesn't like a scape.
Don't ask of you don't wanna the truth.
Just my 2 cents.
