I just filled three more tanks at Christmas time, A simply planted 55g for a breeding pair of angels to parent raise in with a pair of 10g tanks on the lower shelf. The 10's are connected to each other via a cross over pipe to increase the water column. Sand and flourite mixed substrate, java plantlets, anubias trimmings along with moss and driftwood for pleco babies and the second is a bare bottom for separately hatched angel fry for the first 2-3 weeks allowing me to vacuum the bottom after each BBS feeding.
Works well enough with the loose plants letting me move things around chasing babies with a net,,,, but no style.
