I am soo glad that I started this thread!! I REALLY love seeing everyone's tanks! They look amazing!

I guess I'm gonna go with the black diamond then! Depending on how big my tips are tomorrow, I'll probably go pick that and the soil up, and hopefully get everything rinsed and ready to start my substrate changing process on Sunday or Monday :)

Thanks! I just kinda put things in willy nilly.. that 29 is my pride and joy though. Up and running for 6 months now .. I'm not totally happy with the 5 but I'm just gonna let things do what they do. The trouble is that I'm having issues finding plants the stay small. replanting in dirt sucks. I might redo it to look the same, just without soil. (it's in there, behind the sand I hid it like peanut butter in a reeces cup) - I walk into my LFS and they go "What plants do you want today" LOL

I love seeing everyone's tanks though. I get a lot of inspiration from them and I love seeing plants there vs a catalog because you go "Hey what's that plant?" and they tell you, and it's nicer to see it in an aquarium vs in a tank at the store .. it's like looking at paints and trying to imagine them on a canvas.

I'm loving the pics of everyone elses's tanks, some really beautiful ones out there!
Here's my newly planted out 23 gallon It's my first time doing some planned scaping, rather than just chucking in a hodge podge of whatever.
Hopefully the plants will grow nicely and fill out a little. The Banana Lilly is already showing signs of life today, and the Ambulia looks a little better now as it arrived a little worse for wear with a bit of decay on some of the stems
Fishies and shrimpies have more places to explore (hide!) now.

Hooray! They look a little empty after doing that, because I tried arranging everything so there'd be plenty of room for more stems in the back when they arrive, but there's the same number of plants as before. ^.^





I don't know if it's allowed in this thread, but I wanted to include a mugshot of Weehawk, because he's the only one who would cooperate for photos today. XD


i love this tannk!!! please tell me what plants you have / how you set this tank up!

I use 3 every 3 months. I put 1 next to the sword, 1 on the left corner behind the driftwood and one on the right where that driftwood enters the sand. .. The API ones at petco/smart
