Planted and terracotta tank

Today I moved all the plants and fish from my little tank to the 55 gal. I took out most of the plastic plants and put in a bunch of new and inexpensive terracotta pots of different sizes to fill the non-planted side. My gourami loves one of the little pots as a personal cave and the smaller fish and Cories are playing around in them.

Here's a pic and I'd love feedback of any kind.

Took out the biggest pot and removed the background - put on a black trash bag for now. I think both may be an improvement. Will look at mosses the next time I can go to my LFS.

Looks great! I love the way you stacked the pots!

Heres a pic of my 30 g dedicated to plecos.

Beautiful tank. I see you made the holes bigger in the bottom of the pots. I may do that, but for now my neon enjoy and livebearers enjoy them as is.
