Smile Would love to see some 40B tanks!

I have a 40B that I will be working on this winter. Right now it's being used as a grow out tank for some fry, but I need ideas on what to do with it. It should be easy, with those measurements - but good ideas for it escape me.

I'd love to see what people have done with theirs!

This is my first planted tank, and its only a few weeks old. The aquascape is pretty generic.

Right now Im dealing with a diatom bloom, but heres the tank right when I planted it. Water isnt too clear.

I love trotting this out lol - it's not up to date, as I've been busy playing with my fry tank lately, but this url is my online stash of pix of the 40 and other tanks and pix intermingled.

I am working at getting mine up and running as well. Hopefully by Feb it will be flooded. I just got the cracked trim off and just need to seal the new one to the tank. I started playing around with some scape ideas tonight. I think I will go more nature this tank around then "colectoritis" and a poor attempt at dutch I had tried with my 36g bf.

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.
