Show off your tank(s)

I thought it would be interesting to see everyones' tanks here in the MA realm. The idea is a little inspiration and eye candy and to know who is focusing in what area that if someone has a specific question, for example about geosesarma crabs, they could talk to the right person instead of sending out a TPT wide help thread. I think this might be helpful and cool to share and show-off what you got! Also, if people see something they'd like then it would be cool to trade/buy locally instead of having it shipped from Cali.

This is one of mine:

And another, although this one is at this point a bit more overgrown and in dire need of a trim:

Some tank shots, nothing maturely scaped at the moment. Have some other aquaria and tubs that I'll photograph later.

20g L for Caridina cantonensis "crystal black", some small Macrobrachium, Palaemonetes ghost shrimp, assorted snails

5.5g for Neocaridina davidi "Schoko", Caridina pareparensis parvidentata (Malawa), assorted snails

15g with various snails, hermit crabs, small leather corals, assorted macroalgae, two green chromis, and one scooter blenny ... for now. Eventually to house a single small mantis shrimp (probably Gonodactylaceus ternatensis)

Terrarium for red-eyed tree frog

Nice idea and nice tanks Hobbes.
Here's my 29. Link to the journal is in my sig. Pretty soon a 40b will take its place. :-)
