Unhappy

Been a while since I posted this tank. Heres a quick pic. Sorry to report that all three newts are MIA in my biology lab and presumed dead. Man they are amazing escape artists. this tank is really in its prime right now, running on comlpete autopilot for the most part. wish i had a good camera. Theres a breeding group of fancy gupppies down below and thats about it, but boy the plant growth is brilliant.

hope you like it

Been years since I've looked at this build thread. just for fun i snapped a new pic. I just trimmed yet another huge volume of foliage from the top and sides as well as giant root masses from the water section. This tank grows like crazy!

Thanks BB, I haven't been building much since i finished the leopard gecko tank. loved the tank but found an amazing family with a bunch of kids who could never afford to get the geckos. figured it was a good chance to pay it forward. built a tank and got them set up at their home. Selfishly it allowed me to start my new build! super excited about growing some starter bonsais in that huge tank. Im really gonna try and get them to look good and prosper. keep tabs on it and chime in with any suggestions!!
