We are preparing to move into a new building this month and had to move outta my office so Leo's tank had to be taken down. Gonna be a while before I actually get to move into my office, so set up the new 2.0 version at home. Its re cycling with a new HOB filter so he hasn't gotten to move in yet. Here are some shots.

I like it a lot! However, it does not look very cohesive. Adding any kind of moss in between the spaces of the hard scape will give it a lot of depth and cohesion. Are you going to be doing another betta?

Still got the same one. Hes in the breader box on my 20 right now. Kinda wanna get away from mosses cuz the moss took over his last tank since I didnt trim it that much.
Was thinking about maybe adding some nana petite or something on the hard scape.

I think Nana Petite will be way too big and clumsy. Maybe some Anubias Micro? Mini Bolbitis would be cool too!

Nana petite is perfect for my two gal setups. You can see it well in my 18" long journal.

Thanks. Had to redo the tank cuz the moss was getting out of control and the scape was more set up for a 360 viewing when I was gonna bring it back to work, but since I never got my own office like they said I would and still stuck in the lab I dont want a tank with all that going on around it. So I have redone the scape again and will snap some pics once the water clears up. I think this setup will provide Leo with more room to swim and wont confine him like the other one did when it grew in so heavily.

Leo's new layout that he enjoys a lot more now. Redesigned due to tank no going to be able to go back to work for a long while now. Gave him much more free space to roam.

Side note:
started a wabi kusa that may or maynot move to work, but here are some start up pics of it.

Thanks, I often forget about this tank and it has gotten a little over grown, but Leo seems to enjoy it still. Kinda really dont know what to do with it now really.
