Update on 46 Gallon

So just a quick update on how the tank looks now. The rocks in the tank are a mixture of Zebra rock that I got for free at a local stone place and Seiryu stones which were won on a ROAK contest from a member. If you want to see what it started out as, check out my post Total rescape of 46 after complete loss of fish dated 8/13/2012. Also some pics of my Blue Rams I got last night at a lfs for 5.00 each.
This is what the tank looked like back in August of 2012

Hey nobody has any input. Thought for sure somebody would say something about the tank.

I like the variety! Especially the moss on the wood. Is that tank on a counter or the floor? Looks like it could be either. I assume those Ram's are not community fish?

I would stick a taller background plant in the right corner at minimum

Thank You that is a piece that I purchased from a member here, I super glued Fissidens fontanus
on it. The tank is on a DIY stand that my stepfather and I made, it is on wheels so I can move it when I need to. I am waiting on some more stem plants to arrive in the mail. The rams do not seem to bother any of the other fish or the shrimp.

AWESOME TANK!

i have a question about your blue rams, im about to pick a couple up tomorrow, i was wondering what your tank parameters are? PH, Nitrate, kh/gh i tend to stress out about tank parameters pretty bad, so i was wondering if my water is similar to yours.

thanks!

I would have to do some testing on it. I have not tested in some time. I tend not to test as often as people say I need to.

I used to keep an open mind but my brains kept falling out.

Just a quick update. I had to catch some bleeding heart tetras as one of them ate one of my neon's so it was goodbye, and I ended up tearing the whole tank down just to catch them boy are they good hiders.
