My tank so far.

heres an update to my new tank. I went to one of my LFS and bought 20 more lbs of LR. they tested the water for me and they said I am ready to add fish... just do a water change. I took out the cam and snapped a few for you all. tell me if i did ok with the rock spacing etc.







I plan on adding fish next week. a few clowns and maybe a snowflake eel thats all. I heard that i would need a clean up crew. what are those?

I also plan on buying PC lighting and maybe a powerhead this weekend. so how am I doing for a newb?

I would go with just the clowns and the clean up crew at first. A clean up crew usually consists of a few hermit crabs and a few snails.

Also, Why not get some blue backdrop paper to hide some of your wires and equipment running behind the tank? Its also a subtle way of giving your pictures a more "realistic" look.
