Sushi's Finished Home!

So finally, I finished his tank. Well..minus the background..but..not totally important yet. I'm pretty happy with it. I have a pic of his old Marina cube to show his space before and after.

I plan on doing something similar with my girlfriend's betta, but in a greek ruin style.

A very nice tank. The bamboo stalks in the water is pretty neat. Think my favorite thing, though, are the soldiers.

I had that Marina Cube tank. It's very pretty, but I felt so bad because they didn't swim so much. And then, bam, I divide my 5 gallon, and they're gorgeous and swimming... I'm so happy. I hope you'll see the grand difference between the two.

The tank is GORGEOUS by the way...! I'd love to see a pic of the to-be Greek tank.

Yeah I'm kinda...well..am a big video game nerd. For a while I was thinking "well, damn lets stick one in there and see how he likes it!"

The greek tank will probably be done in the next week or two. I dont know if I'll stick with the same filter or if I'll go with a hanging filter but so far this has worked great. The bamboo breaks the current up

Looks GREAT!!!

Only two things I suggest:

A cover, if you got plastic canvas, you could cut holes for the bamboo to go through.

The bamboo shouldn't be completely submerged.

Don't get me wrong, I think it looks fantastic!!!! Great job!

Ok to answer some questions...yes those are from Gears of War...hah...I'm such a nerd.

I've been looking around trying to find a nice cover so I can close the top off but I may have to make it myself.

It is "real bamboo" considering that those plants arent really bamboo...as long as the leaves break the water I should be ok, but I'll probably remove some and replace them with taller stalks.

I do have a question to ask all of you though. I plan on doing a greek theme for my next tank. Any good plant ideas that will look nice with greek columns?

I suppose Java moss and java fern would look good, maybe an Anubias too. :)
