My LFS display tanks.

Just wanted to share these 3 display tanks at my LFS.

Well I say my LFS I actually just buy plants from this shop. As when I said to the owner I wanted some Bolivian rams, he replied I'm not placing a fish order for at least 2 weeks. Lol. But their biggest business is aquascaping rather than fish sales.

I have a different LFS for fish.

Here goes

Angel tank with Flying fox's

They really know their stuff. But their turn over of fish is slow. They've had the same single male Bolivian ram in the shop for over 3weeks.

But they can design tanks and they grow all their own plants in house as they are also a hydroponic shop.

They turned my boring tank

It's just a FW shop but with an emphasis on the scaping side of aquariums.

Wow you are sooooo lucky to have a shop like that near you. Those altimeter angels and the scape in their tank both look beeeuuutiiifuuul. Do you know how many gallons each tank is?

you did a great job on YOUR tank. the balance you have is very pleasing to the eye. it will be even better when your plants grow a bit.

Thank you very much.

However I will say that one of the employees designed the entire plantation of my tank including positions of the plants based upon how they will look once they've grown in.

The only thing I did was have a drawing of plant position within my tank and then follow the drawing once I got home with my near £250 or $340 worth of plants lol.

It cost a fair bit to plant this way but it's worth it.

Some of the plants are going through melt currently. Nothing too serious just a few leaves here and there. Hopefully with my nutrients and the fact I'm using pressurised Co2 it shouldn't melt the entire plant.
