Only took about two weeks to do. Soooo many layers on layers, and each had to dry before I could move forward with it.

Then again, he'll probably be dragging everyone in to show off the betta, whatever goes into the 20 gal, and the crawfish. Actually he already shows off the new tank in the living room that is currently cycling. I did a nifty painting on the back glass, so it looks pretty awesome on its own.

I love the painting, it's very original! You don't see many tanks decorated like that. Usually people go with the natural look, but I really love the personality in yours.

I'm adding more rock and brackish friendly plants to get kind of a sunken ruins look.

Love the tank Alex!

When you never use the timer on your iPod for anything but water tests so when you do use it at your parents house and it goes off you need to brace yourself from jumping in the car and driving 2 1/2 hrs away to do a water test.

Very cool. Yea, it took me a couple weeks to do the charcoal for my tank and then I put in the back and thought it looked too depressing..

If go to realtor.com and rent.com to find a new place to live so you can finally get the 40 gallon breeder that you drool over every time you go to the lfs.
