This is nice ! except for those fake looking logs of wood. I would also add some waterproof LED lighting on tip there with blue/or green nuances to make it look like a dark fortress.I would also suggest you add some floating plants, dont quite know the name but some are very small and some look like water lilies, you know just to give it a more natural look.

LOL, those fake looking logs of wood are cholla wood. Its what all the cool shrimp keepers use Ha ha. It grows bio film and other micro organisms that the shrimp will graze on.

thx. actually that is not the best looking flamingo that i have. my other is SUPER compact and has about twice the leaves. Ill text you a pic of it tomorrow.

just a basic 36" aquarium fixture with a zoo med bulb.

my other flamingo is in my 55g with a single T5 bulb.
