turned out more pink

So the color ended up being "pinker" than I hoped, but I still like the over all effect. It is in my dining room and goes with the color scheme in there, hunter green, mint green, fuschia, and ivory.

I ended up getting a few mollies for this tank, I figured they would look good against the color. My beta actually tries to school with them lol, and two of the females are having babies soon.

I got a circulation pump, 500gph, and it cleaned up the tank/diatoms, algea issues almost immediately. Things are looking better to me, and having a little more optimism than last weekend. I was almost ready to give up, until the color brightened things up for me.

Hope you like it, if not, it's ok too, =)
I really like it.

I taped on glass mirror tiles to one of my tanks, back and both sides.
