It looks great! I love the drift wood, it looks like a tree I also like how you did gravel and sand. What's the stock? I see some rummies and some neons and an awesome rts.

I have
3 zebra loaches
3 Cory's
6 rummy nose tetra
4 dwarf gourami
1 albino Ruby shark
5 cardinal tetra
3 guppies
1 endler
1 small pleco (the one that only grows upto 4in)

I will be a bit overstocked when some of the fish get bigger so I have another tank to setup for my son
Hopefully I can get these baby dwarf tears going without co2 if not then another trip to the fish shop haha

Thanks for the comments Nick

I had one of those sharks. They mature quickly and have unbelievable growth spurts. Best to rehome it now. You'll need a 75 gallon minimum to keep it happy.

They only get to about 4 inches, and prefer schools of 5 or more. I had some years ago, they are amazing looking fish!
