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

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

After a little trim and some replanting:

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:

Greedy, it is actually made out of wood. If you're interested in the process, I have a build thread here http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...610&highlight=
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.

|AdamC13||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||Very nice cube, the light very nice as well. Did you heat up that piece of acrylic to bend it over the tank?|

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

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.

A quick shot of the regrowth thus far. Doing a water change today and adding ferts - expecting a jump in growth over the next week.
