Amazing pictures!

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.
"You're not putting a hundred gallon tank in the living room," my roommate replied.


10g "Community" of nothing but Danios - 2g (barely) planted Betta - 2.5g Betta - 1g Pond Snail Repository

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'

Quick update:

This tank has been ignored a bit more than I'd like and my WC/Fertilization schedule has dropped off. The betta has a touch of the fin-rot again due to a power outage a month ago. One of the ottos was trapped behind the filter sponge and passed. Fortunately the shrimp / pygmy cories had him cleaned up and gone within 24 hours.

The tank has been trimmed a few more times. Due to the lack of fertilization the ludwigia SP red has not been thriving.

It's grown out a bit since the last shots. Also I've built a 20W led light to replace the two cfls.

Very nice cube, the light very nice as well. Did you heat up that piece of acrylic to bend it over the tank?

barely made it through the first couple pages of ridiculousness but a very nice tank. Any reason the water level isn't higher? or is it just to prevent jumpers?

Greedy, it is actually made out of wood. If you're interested in the process, I have a build thread here 20W Multichip LED build (Fluval Ebi / Flora)

Adam, shamefully, in the last set of images the water is just at its weekly low point due to evaporation. Generally, I keep the water level about 3/4 of an inch below the rim. I've lost 2 amanos to higher fills than this.

Thanks,
Rob

Some updated shots as the tank adjusts to the new light. I'm still not too hot on the color rendition:

Think I'm going to have to put angelo on a diet soon:

Absolutely beautiful! I have bettas too, and love to see them in heavily planted tanks that appropriately sized. Fantastic.

Thanks VJM. My Betta, Angelo, is quite the king of the jungle in there - though he still enjoys pats on the head
