Amandas tank Update: I love my tank again! The tank has undergone a major rescape and looks just how I want it too...plants will look awesome once everything fills in! Thanks to some very kind and helpful folks at TPT I am loving my tank again

The Roseline Sharks are gone and we will have 25 Diamond Tetras here next week. They will be added to the main tank after being in QT for awhile. More Kuhli Loaches too. Things are good again

If you'd like to see, I have pictures of the rescape here: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=195675

I am happy for you! Don't you dare hold back the pictures.(that devil is smiling ) Far as the Diamonds go...they are awesome! Far as I have seen on youtube they will be great schoolers!

Amandas tank Update November 11, 2012:

I wanted to share that I am nearly decided on fishies Here is where I'm at as of today. If you have any concerns from experiences you've had with these fish, please don't hesitate to share with me! I have been eliminating fish from the choices based off what others have told me about the species behavior. I have eliminated thus far Lemon Tetras, Bloodfin Tetras and more Angels.

Pre-exsisting inhabitants:
2 Angelfish, 1 Female Round Tail Betta and I will be adding 8 Kuhli Loach...everyone else in the family wants to try them again

The prospective species left from my long list are Diamond Tetras, Espei Rasboras mixed with Harlequin Rasboras and have been thinking about adding a small group of shoaling species such as RedBack Bleeding Hearts and/or Rosy Tetras.

This tank has no Co2, no ferts other than osmocote caps (and I'm way overdue on that) and the light is just a Home depot shop light with a 6500 and a 6700 for bulbs. It's an experiment!
I just got the crinum in the mail yesterday, we'll see if the fish start eating it. If so I'll have to move it to the 55s when they're set up...
Right, what matters is how the owner of the tank feels about the looks because that person is the one who will be looking at it all day. Personally, your tank is far from crappy! It looks perfect! Each tank has it's own feel. Some are like fairy book gardens, Enchanted Forests and some are like a scene sliced from nature, or like a scene from the great movie Avatar, and then there are those that are all-over-the-place! Each one is unique and taylored to the owners imagination (and skill) Yours to me, looks like a well thought out masterpiece portraying a dark, natural underwater scene from a blackwater area. It is stunning!

I am all mixed up about what I'm going to do with mine LOL! I have drawn up about 30 layouts and still keep thinking of something different. I am the most undecisive person I know! I am constantly changing my mind or tweeking things in every aspect of my life! I can't ever seem to just sit still and enjoy. It's a horrible hitch I am one of those that is all-over-the-place. I've got too many "loves". For example, I can see a Dutch Style and a Iwagumi style; complete opposites and equally "love" both of them if the layout is appealing to me.

There are a few tanks on here that top out on my love list. Yours is most definetely one of them!

It makes such a great floater that I'm going to leave it (although spread it out some)
Holy Cats! I am blown away! Your tank is incredible! It looks like it never ends and you could just swim under that huge piece of wood and away in an underwater forest! I have my Pennywort doing the same ting. My Betta and smallest Angel like to "creep" through the stuff all the time. The little Angel actually positions itself completely on it's side and slices through it. First time I saw this, I ran to the tank really upset thinking s/he died and was stuck in the plants!

I just saved this to my desktop so I could get a closer look. Breathtaking!
