I know that there are many creative souls on this website, mostly from just looking at your tanks. :) Well, the aquascape of my 16 gallon has run it's course. The plants have now grown to the point where I can no longer keep them under control and are no longer looking as I'd like. So, it's time to start again.
The trouble is, my tank is an unconventional shape. It's 14.5 inches side to side and front to back, with bevelled corners, and 18 inches tall. I've attached a picture of it (with the current aquascape at its prime).
There are a couple of things in it that I want to keep. I have a driftwood cave for the cories, which is kind of big, that is covered across the top in java fern. I also have two healthy java fern bunches and a terracotta pot with anubias that I don't want to lose. The rest can be changed out, either for new plants or ornaments.
My current stock:
6 female bettas
6 ember tetras
6 endler's livebearers
An unkown number of red cherry shrimp.
If any of you guys can give me suggestions, sketched plans, links to nice plants/ornaments/substrate/whatever, I would be so greatful. Normally I am full of ideas for my tanks, but I think I used up all my creativity rescaping Odysseus's tank, so I need people to kickstart me! :p
The only rules are:
- live plants, not fake
- natural gravel or sand, nothing rainbow or hot pink
- pretty decor, not Spongebob (he gives me nightmares)
