|Pink_Hat||I like this picture as a jumping off point.|

I have been looking at inspiration pictures and feeling very disgruntled. I didn't think my huge castle was going to fit with the plants. Then I had an idea.
I am going to make it an Enchanted Forest. Now I am excited.

I need a plan
I think I will start planning with the Castle on the right. That way I have more room to work with plants.

She is seriously beautiful. She was should have been short finned, but is a sailfin. She is midnight black and so healthy now that she is getting closer to full size.
I am so hoping for lovely Midnight Black babies from her
Did I mention how hard it is to photograph moving black fish with a point and shoot camera?

Forgot the photo
Sorry I meant to add this.

Such a show off. He swims REALLY fast and is impossible to photograph with my camera.

The Middle sized Female
I have a soft spot for this one. She was sick and I nursed her back to life. She tends to get constipated, so I feed her lots of veg. It is very amusing to see how excited she gets about peas. If I look at the glass she comes up and greats me.

Our little 1cm baby has really grown. She is about 3cm now.

|Unkillable Cat||I love the perfect dream feel to it. The colours blend perfectly for the kind of thing you would expect to see in some kind of fantasy utopia.|

I LOVE having an aquarium. I am enjoying the fish and the live plants. I am not finding the aquarium to be a bother at all. In fact, I find caring for the tank relaxing.
The problem is that now I have discovered this forum. Aquascaping is amazing and you are all very inspiring. The question is now what?
Yup, I am that person that just put the live plants in gravel.
I really like the idea of a hill on the right hand side. I also think plants growing on driftwood add so much to the overall look. Even if it's just a smaller driftwood piece. (Next tank will have a root for sure )
The castle is comes in two parts, so it's easier to move. It can be turned around, so the back faces outwards as well. I will try to add more current photos tonight.

Then we added Black Mollys
We bought 1 male and 2 female Mollys. We ended up having a 1 cm baby female tag along as well.
It turned out that the one female is much older than the others. She has grown beautifully, but is a bit of a bully.
We have had a lot of fun raising the baby and she is now in the safely in the main tank.
This is about the same time I discovered that our plants had brought snails into the tank.

Our first 3 fish
These poor little guys were so small in the big tank. They must have liked it, because they exhibited mating behaviour on Day 1. On Day 2 they spawned.
I had no idea what to do. I managed to hatch some eggs and they lived for a few days. Next time hopefully I have more knowledge to help them survive.
