Zombie's 5gHex

I ended up looking at my 5gFBH last night, disgusted so I made the decision to clean it & get it ready for a new inhabitant. Well, I took out the ornaments looking for Puma, my tiger nerite[found her] & just decided to change it up completely.

Soo ... I looked across the room suddenly and seen my empty 5gHex and was like "Hmm ... you have a better filter!" xD So I cleaned & reassembled it, FW this time for the remaining red cherry shrimp[the only inhabitants besides some pest snails]

so, ditching the Egyptian/Grecian clash theme from the FBH, the hex has my dragon & a piece of DW. It also has a good handful of black & neon gravel to provide some different colors/contrast to the typical white/black look & I'm gonna put in the three marbles I have.

So, here's where we're at:



Fauna:
-7x Red Cherry Shrimp

Flora:
Narrowleaf Ludwigia
Rotala Rotundifolia
Guppy Grass
Java Moss
Tiger Lotus
E. Vesuvius
Dwarf Hairgrass
Dwarf Sag

hehe, thanks! :D

So ... I put Pigeon, a gimpy delta in. He's been with me since ... June and was full grown when I got him. Don't know why no one bought him before me, but when I saw him, I decided he needed a stable home. He's pretty old.

He's a copper dragon and the scaling has caused him to have diamond eye where he's blind[just in one eye]:

Unfortunately, Pigeon died after a couple of weeks of being in the tank ... since I lost him around the same time I lost 2 of my other males, depressed, I shoved my last CT in here for a bit ... but then I found a yellow/green marble CT so I put the two in a divided 5.5gal which seems to be doing ok and had this tank just shrimp for a bit. When I found 2 dwarf puffers at my LFS, I snagged them and put them in here so that's where we're at. This tank is meant to get more plants but we'll see if/when that happens ...



And the 5.5gal:
