I like it! Is that just white rocks, or is it sand also? It looks like sand underneath where your fish is swimming at. Funny, I almost bought that skull and put it in my tank. I didn't I opted for the natural look instead of things like sunken treasure, boats, underwater divers etc......But to each his/her own. Whatever everyone likes in their tank is perfect. Now I have to wait for the fish store to open....Only 4 hours to go! LOL!!!!

Have you checked Craig's list for a slightly larger tank. Even a 25 Gallon wouldn't take up much more room, and you could add more fish (watch the amounts) and other decor also. I started with a 15 gallon here about 3 years ago when I got back the hobby, then quickly went up to a 25 gallon as I wanted more fish. Then about 5 weeks ago I gave almost all of my fish away to Petco(they adopt fish out ) and got my 55 gallon. Love it and I can add larger fish and really decorate it better than my 25 gal. Think about it Zach.

Hey guys,
Talking about decor you can get lots of cheap decor from craigslist I have a box filled with some I picked up for $10 that way I can change it up. There is a guy here in lake Stevens redoing his yard and dug up thousands of river rocks and is giving them away. I picked up a bunch and they are all different sizes and look. Let me know if your interested. I don't know much about plants. That's why I didn't chime in. If someone will ever advise me on a different post how to fix my 70 gallon acrylic tank I was trying to decide on a planted or African cichlid tank. I love the planted look but love cichlids, which usually destroy plants.
