Here's a pic of my 12g long that currently houses some blue diamonds. I used to have crs in the tank but moved them. Here's a vid when the crs were in the tank. Hope you like it.

The beginning of what I hope will be a booming RCS colony. About 20 so far...

Here's my 55 gallon super-tall (5 ft) acrylic hexagon 'shrimp high-rise'. I currently don't have anything in it but flora and am waiting to restock. These are shots from about two years ago with some Cherries:





Some caveats to this tank:
-It's an absolute bitch to clean.
-You -have- to have an airstone to work as an 'elevator' for gas exchange. I forgot to turn it back on one day after a big clean and had a nasty die-off.
-Good luck culling anything. I had to make a shrimp trap out of a plastic bottle and go 'fishing' every day. Actually, that was kind of fun.

Xerobull: That is magnificent! Perfect example of what people can do with those difficult column-like tanks. Difficulty aside, of course.

Amazing tank, and very nice decor!

It would be perfect for an underwater vine spiraling around it.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

Here's my sad 45 gallon breeding colony tank. Had a timer malfunction a month and a half back...and hair algae out the @ss is the result of 240 straight hours of solid dual T5 HO nightmare fuel. Still battling this HUGE problem...have a 5 gallon bucket absolutely stuffed with plants in a liquid carbon/peroxide bath. Here's my "before" will post my rescape this weekend after completion!
