That`s a fabulous looking tank. I wish I could have a nice planted tank like ya`ll.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

That's really nice! I wish I had a bigger tank to play with. I always feel like I'm just kind of smashing everything in there in a haphazard way. I also wish I had room for more angelfish, mine keep breeding and I wish I had room to keep some of the babies

Wow, happy girl, witha tank like that, no wonder you're happy. It looks great. What is that material you use to create two different levels of substrate?
Thank you so much for all your help. I'm back into the hobby with a new vigor!

It is acrylic. I had a long and exaustive search for materials to use on this tank for a terrace effect. I ended up with acrylic.
Welcome to my planted tank page here is a link to the "diary" I did that shows the acrylic walls by themselves before I filled the tank incase you are interested.

Well here's my second attempt at a planted community tank. Just rearranged it and added more flora. Thanks to Happygirl for providing 75% of the plants. It's mostly swords right now but it's still a work in progress. Of course i think they always are. This 40 gallon tank is home to
4 or 5 ghost shrimp
4 white cloud minnows
3 scissor tail rasboras
2 long fin zebra danios - Mated pair that just last week spawned for the first time. No fry since i wasn't expecting it and the other tank mates decided it was snack time. They looked like vultures waitin for a meal.
2 false julii corys
1 albino clawed frog
unknown number of MTS's

I will be putting a back ground on it soon. I like the black but wanted to try a deep, dark blue first. Just gotta find it. Any and all suggestions welcome.

Things have actually changed quite a bit. I've had to move the tank to a new house, so the plants are in shambles right now, except for the hardy ones. A lot of the rocks have been taken out and the remaining ones have been put into piles. The Moai are currently no longer in the tank. I think I miss them and need to put them back.

Is this the new pic or an old pic? Things look newly planted in that everything is in short groups but I can just imagine everything filled in and growing. It has a real mystical tropics kind of feel. I like the splashes of color and the smooth beach with larger smooth stones. Very nicely done. Is that Harlequin Rasbora? They look so neat in a nice little school.

My freshwater 120 G high tropical tank, only about 5 weeks old. Can't really see the fish, but here is what I have:
  • 8 small Angelfish, 4 are veiled and 4 are regular.
  • 24 Neon Tetras
  • 24 Zebra Danios
  • 5 Marble Corys
  • 4 Snails
  • 1 Male Siamese fighting fish and 1 female Siamese fighting fish
I still need to tweak the aquascape some and hide the air hoses, etc. :p

This is my new tank I set up 3 months ago from a nano. It looks like a big frag tank right now so excuse it! LOL!
