Thats good. The more cover you provide the more they will be out in the open.

Looks better but still very barren. Some taller decor might help a bit, particularly if you could find a few large pieces of driftwood. A nice big manzanita stump would look great in there. Also have you tried facing your filter output horizontally? Might give your tank a bit more flow throughout.

Well, my rams are. Lying to,morrow, and I will be getting more money soon. I'll look into more driftwood, and I was planning on more plants Anyhow. Will they be OK temporarily? I realize the conditions aren't Perfect, but are they at least satisfactory?

They're probably going to be stressed if they can't find ample cover.. why can't you get some plants? A nice java fern mat and some swords will do wonders for the scape..

Bah, no ride to pet store (I'm 14), so no plants for me

The main part of the root structure needs to be above the substrate to avoid rotting. Best to tie to a piece of rock or driftwood.
