Looks good! I like where you're wanting to go with it!

Ps, I almost always use construction paper for my backgrounds. Lol.

Omg I love giant upside down cats!!! I got the fun part of raising them- fry until they outgrew a 50g- then my mom would take them to her ponds and river systems- my whole family is aqua crazy. She has her stock now so no more fun times with baby GB/u/d cats for me- miss the feeding antics of juveniles in aquariums, lol... Enjoy your monster fish, thanks for sharing!!

TOO much going on! lol

My neighbor who I gave two Betta fish to a couple years ago got into a bad auto accident and was recuperating away from home said his sister was taking care of the fish and plants. After two weeks he came by to pick up mail and we found his three tanks 2 betta one snails in catastrophic conditions.

The sister got two vacation feeders 3 INCHES in diameter, one for each Betta tank, these are 1.5 and 2 gal tanks!

One Betta perished. The other is now doing fair at my house till neighbor comes home in a couple weeks but has a little swim bladder, so I have been feeding him a pea a day and he seems more active and a tiny bit better since Saturday afternoon. Did a 60% pwc for him today (after a complete clean out Saturday), added water to a few tanks.

Found 3 Hydra in one of my Betta tanks and I just last week let someone borrow my medicine so I have to get that back, only had Planaria, not Hydra yet til now!

Was checking on my 6.6 Edge tank and realized my filter had stopped. I pulled it apart and cleaned it. It is working now. The power company came by Saturday and changed to a new updated meter head and I think the temporary power outage may have been why it stopped/didn't start back up, in addition to the impeller needing a cleaning.

pwc on two little tanks.

Going to repack my fluval FX5 to see if I can get it to run again, pretty sure I just over packed the media, as it was going gangbusters before that.
Then I am going to work! lol Work is such an inconvenience to the fish keeping!

Did my fourth 35-45% pwc on my gf's tank to finally get her ammo back onto the charts. The first test was off the charts before the 5 minute wait was even up:-(

Stunning! I wish I had the guts for a large sw setup. But my fw tanks do relax me. I watch them at night for about 45 minutes.

I really like the rock quarry look. I may go in this direction with my next tank. I have a 55 with just about everything that my uncle said I can have. I just need to find a stand.
