That is a lot of aquariums. I have two and I'm thinking of reducing that to just one haha. I dont know what it is exactly, but I like the dirted aquarium most. Something about how natural and wild it looks.

Really like the 65. The mass of that sword shouldn't work smack dab in the center--but it does!. Very nice.

thank you, it's really awkward finding the right place for a plant like that, but when it flowers, it looks amazing in the tank, a huge network of baby plants. there's a radican that almost always flowers at the same time of the amazon and it looks that much more awesome.

it's right at the foot of my bed on a coffee table next to the tv.. i think it goes without saying, but i'm usually watching the tank and listening to the tv.

and yes, it does get overwhelming at times, different batches of eggs and fry here and there all the time, the filter cleanings and water changes. but then you sit down and appreciate, when all the work is done. it's so worth it.

Not likely, its only about half full, about 1-2mm of bow. I got the tank for cheap and the trim was already cracked in several places including the cross bar. After the cichlids are moved out, ill likely just use it for plants. Who knows, maybe ill just euro brace it.
