so here it is this morning, I spread the crypts out slightly and moved the small grassy plants around, a few minor adjustements and in a couple days when it is clear I will post another picture, then I need to sit on my hands and let it be lol

Awesome! :O

It's sooo hard to just leave the tanks alone, isn't it?

Looks great.

I have just recently set up my 5th tank and am waiting for it to settle and hopefully it will be ready for a boy next weekend. Planted it out today but need to sort out the filter as it is a tad too strong
I'll put some pics up when it has cleared

It looks AMAZING. Everytime I visit this thread it just makes me want to do a NPT that much more. Unfortunately I have to wait until I have some time off, college starts up in three weeks and I wont have time to put into it. BOO. But I can come look at your pictures of your beautiful tank! Your decisions have been perfect, if I had a hat on I'd take it off to you!

Aw thanks! I just realised I posted the same picture twice lol
Originally I wanted to breed but I'm hoping to get into school next year which means moving and I can't move that many fish.

I worry about that too- I am in a place in my life where I may be moving any time .. . sometimes I have anxiety about moving my 7 bettas. Normally I know I can take care of more than that. But moving is such a pain!

BTW your tank looks really cool. I want to do a planted tank but I decided to start with baby steps- I ordered more plants BUT I only ordered ones that can live floating or tied to a rock or wood. I do have one tank that has part fake silicone purpley-pink-and-white anemones and corals. . and partly mopani wood and real anubias floating around. I know it's probably considered weird to have half fake and half real plants. . . but so far it's working for that betta. It might not be that "classy" but I think he likes it. :)

How long does it take for cloudiness to subside when you've added sand or whatnot?
