Themis and Pigg's divided tank:


Atlas and Artemis' divided tank:


Both are 10g tanks and have been rearranged and have more plants/have grown bigger. I can't take pics right now, it's too dark and the tank lights too bright for my camera :P This was about an hour after I first planted them.

Current plants in my tank:

4 Corkscrew Vallisneria
1 Java Fern
2 Swords (I believe)
1 Mystery (mislabelled)
1 Water Wisteria

Nothingness, I am super jealous.

Picture One: My 16 gal when I first scaped it
Picture Two: My 5 gal when I first scaped it
Picture Three: A 1.5 litre nano tank (jar)
Picture Four: My extremely messy, overgrown 16 gallon a couple of days ago
Picture Five: The same 16 gallon about 18 months/two years ago when it was still neat and pretty.

very nice, i like the 1.5 ltr jar, is that just a basic jar or is it an actual tank? i like the idea as temp housing for some fry.

It's a jar that I believe once held coffee, as I have a few in my cupboards that are identical. I got that particular one when I bought my rescue Apollo (RIP) of the classifieds a few years back. That had been his home for a while. It's been sitting empty taking up space ever since, so I planted it on Friday. :)
This particular one would be no good for housing fry, unfortunately, since I don't think it's even half a gallon.

A pal of mine (coincidentally SHE is named Artemis ^^) and she has the plant on the left in her tank. Its overtaking her tank and I consider cutting down a few of the branches and replanting them into my tank. Do you think this will work? I am more concerned damaging her plant.

Nice aquariums Btw guys/gals!
