Thank you. I am pretty please with it myself. Now all it needs is water and fish! I am having a hard time deciding on what to stock though. I think all small schooling fish would be neat with a few corys and peacock gobies.

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

I like the idea but I thought gobies needed slightly brackish water? Any ideas on plants?

As far as I'm aware peacock gobies aren't really gobies (peacock gudgeons) and don't need brackish water... could be wrong though! As for the plants I think am going to stick with low light low maintenance plants.

I was just taking a wild guess and you're probably right, peacocks would look fantastic in there. Cover the tank in Taiwan moss and call it a day!

Thumbs up Great textures and colors!

Love love love the metallic texture going on with the stand and the tone on tone going on in the room. Beautiful tankscaping too!

Wow! I love your tank. I just got a 40 breeder myself several days ago and I still have no idea what I want to do with it
