It REALLY turned out great! I just LOVE a black background - it adds a lot of depth, IMO.

Is the tank the 5 gal. or the 2 1/2 gal.?

It's a 5-gallon. I see you're in Wisconsin. I'm a former cheesehead from the southeast corner of the state.

I have one of the 5 gals. that I also picked up used - they are pretty awesome, IMO! Mine happens to be red.

I am in N.E. Wisconsin & live 4 blocks west of the beautiful Lake Michigan shore line. Originally from Detroit, though, so I am a die hard Lions fan (ok, you can stop laughing now ). I get a lot of razzing from Packer fans, but I give as good as I get!

I just found a 5 gallon red one at one of the thrift stores where I live. Got it for $5! :)

Beautiful tanks! I am jealous of every ones thrift store finds!
The thrift store near my house was trying to sell just an empty 10 gallon with nothing with it for 15.00.

I was like are you kidding? its only 12.99 brand new at petco!...They would not lower the price either...

They didn't tell me what they were at the lfs, but I was doing some research on them and I think they are Cryptocoryne wendtii. There were lots of little plants grouped together, and I spread them all apart. Hopefully they will get a little bushier, but I think they are slow-growing.
