Well I am really not happy with this tank right now. I haven't had the funds to upgrade for bigger wood and stones since I upgraded from 29g to 55g over a year ago. So I just keep moving around my same pile of wood and stones... lol. But here is a pic from today regardess.

Thank you. The rasoboras are small I guess but the turquoise rainbow is pretty big.

Looks nice and roomy. I like the different depth clay pots/hiddey holes!

Just a suggestion...I think the DW would look nice directly on the sand on the left side. To make room for that I would pile the rocks on the right side somewhere between the filter intake and the spray bar. Make that the focal point. Has something to do with drawing the eyes away from the center of the tank and breaking up any symmetry. The clay pots are decorative and functional and can be incorporated into the "rock pile". Just my two cents. I understand some of the points that can lead to a good scape, however, actually achieving them really takes an artistic eye. My efforts have often been called "crop" or "farm like" because I have trouble following even my own advice. Good luck and continue to post any changes. Looking forward to whatever you come up with.

Hi you can collect plenty of decor for free,just look around any local woodlands and find some suitable branches,just make sure its not rotten{a good squeeze will show if its rotten or not if it 'crumbles' or feels soft leave it alone}Sorry I have forgotten which trees are fish safe,but thin Oak and Silver birch are OK? But i would check on here first! Also rocks and pebbles are easy to find,almost anywhere,just give a dam good clean and rinse and then give the 'vinegar' treatment{just pour some on and see if it reacts,if it does leave well alone!}This is the joy of bigger tanks as the local shop simply do not usually have big enough decor!

Hi done a water change yesterday and cleaned out my fluval 405 and rescued the usual several hundred shrimps!!! I also installed my latest light a Gro beam 600. Looks very different to my 'old' T5s Just have to wait and see if the plants agree!?

Finally attempted to get my flame scallop to where I can see him, Now how long hell stay is another story. Had to take some rocks and coral out to move the rock he is attached to in a shady but visible place. This was not an easy task! LOL. Here he is now on the side of tank, closed up now of course.
