Well, here it is...my 55tank remodel. And all of my fish survived and seem happy this morning!
It's a good thing that this isn't a photography website, because these photos kind of SUCK. But you get the idea.
I spent hours yesterday with my husbands power tools cutting the manzanita to size (there are two pieces) and hollowing out the insides so the fishes can have some cool places to swim through and hide. I tried to make it so there are different "levels" for the fish, and I tried to make it so the viewer (my kids) can see the fishes swim around in the caves and tunnels.
All the plants are live, and some are looking a little worse for wear. They aren't quite as happy as the fish. But we'll se what comes back and what I'm going to replace.
I think I am going to replace the "photo" background in the tank with black. I think it might show off the fish better.
So...what do you guys think?
