New 55G

Here's my new 55G. Just need to get the new filter, then I can put in my sand, and then the ornaments. How's it looking?

It's looking good! Something to think about, the plants on the ship will become discolored in the near future. The pink one will turn yucky. You may want to clip them off. We kept ours on the ship and after about 4 months they were all clipped off the ship and in the tash. Actually, i think we have the same ship.

I was planning on doing that. I don't think they look too good anyways.

yeah, they just aren't natural looking. The manufacturers sure try to make them look natural, but I don't think it's possible.

That's the same as my 55, too. Stand and all. >.> Just not the decorations.
