Pics of newly set up 40b

Here's the pics of my tank after the move into our house. All the fish survived the bucket ride journey (so far at least lol) so here are the pics!

All of this is subject to change, but I had to throw something together tonight for the fish.

That's really sweet looking! Love the depth you can get from a 40b.

A 40b is on my wish list. I think yours is going to look very nice once it settles and starts to fill out.

37 gallon community; 10 gallon S-SS CRS; 2x10 gallon guppies; Specialties: Japan blue guppies (wild type), Ginga sulfureus guppies, Blond platinum LS guppies with purple mutation.
Non-aquatics: Off-track thoroughbred racehorse; 2 Maine Coon-type cats; 2 fluffy house rabbits; 60 orchid plants.

Thanks guys!

I already think I'm going to move the big Amazon swords to the left where the group of crypts are and put the crypts where the swords are because the piece of wood on the right is a low laying piece being hidden way too much.

Here's a couple morning sunlight pics! I love sunlight in the tank! I'll definitely have to get a background sooner or later though.

Also is there any way to post pictures from your phone without killing the original resolution?

That's a lot of light coming through those windows. Hope you have CO2! Looks great though. I love the footprint of a 40B

Haha nope, no co2. I opened the blinds for the pictures, even with them closed there's still sunlight so I think I'll look for a black background and maybe even enough to cover half of each side of the tank.

I really like the contrast you have going. Nice work
What type of sand did you use.
Did you put tablets under your sword plant
