Pics of my planted tanks in a window

Thanks to the great advice from this list, (special thanks to Aokashi, who showed me that it can be done), here are pics of my first successful planted tanks. These tanks get 80-90% of their light from a window. The artificial lights are only on for a couple of hours at night so
I can admire the view. (It looks like the same betta in both tanks because they are brothers, Ezio and Altair.)

An Assassins Creed fan I see? :) I love those games :)

Your tanks look great too! I love how lush and green they are.

It took me months to get the design right, but that is what makes it so much fun.
