While I'm not big on the colored gravel, if you're happy with it, thats great. My only suggestion would be to add a dark solid background. Tanks just don't look right without a background IMO.

Yeah I am going to add a background. Probably blue or black solid color. But the ones with pictures of plants aren't out of the question.

I like it! I would add the dark background. In my opinion the planted backgrounds kind of overcrowd the tank.

That looks nice. I really like the piece of wood you have. I personally would go with a black background. I was skeptical about them at first, but now all of my tanks have black. It really makes the colors in your tank and on your fish pop.

What kind of fish are you thinking of putting in there?

And they're usually reflective, which totally ruins the illusion.

Thanks I was kind of leaning towards black anyway.

I am thinking about the following:

4 glofish
2 gourami of some sort
2 dalmation lyretail (I already have)
2 gold Mickey mouse (I already have)
1 ghost shrimp (I already have)
4 red cherry shrimp

There might be more, I'm not sure yet, at some point I think I might add a discus.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but discus' need a much bigger tank. I'd go with a ram or a keyhole cichlid.
