I love the look of your tank. For me, the more plants the better. (Allowing for space for the fish!) 17 tanks of my are planted. I wish I had a decent camera to attach photos of mine. Maybe one day!

Much harder to photograph now that the water lettuce has taken over. In real life it looks so much more amazing.

I personally love the overgrown look, and feel as though they are the best for a sorority (though this contains only a male and some ghost shrimp) as then everyone can find their own space. However, the fish can be hard to find. Even my giant here disappears, and goodness knows I only find the shrimp if I really stir stuff up or put some good food in the tank.

Really nice! I have the Tardis too, as well as a few Cybermen etc. Unfortunately my husband, being the Dr Who nut, has them on his desk. not in an aquarium as planned!

Thanks! I trimmed the plants today so it looks a bit better and less like a jungle imo :P

Haha that's too funny! My boyfriend and I are big Dr Who fans too :) We cannot have any decorations besides the ones in our tanks though because we live with three mischievous cats! :P

Hey guys and girls, it has been a while, but I did some planting and live stock adding, figured I would throw up a pic.

I had a recent java fern leave die off, figured I would do some thickening up/planting.

Added 4 lace java ferns in the back and sides, real nice ones with large rhizomes. Took a regular anubias (non nana) split its big leaves off and planted those in the back left corner to hide the filter intake. Took the other half of that one and put that in the middle behind the wood. Put some watersprite in the back right corner, and filled out the foreground with dwarf sag. I will be adding some christmas moss to the driftwood later this week.

Current live stock: 1 betta, 5 harlequin rasboras, 6 endlers, 1 oto, and one nerite. Everyone gets along great.
