Wow! That looks very nice, especially with the wood protruding out of the water(even though you can't see it in the end).

Keep in mind that your BTOE/OEBT and CRS/CBS will cross. Meaning that they'll interbreed and I'm not so sure that the offspring are attractive. I'd say choose one between OEBT and BTOE since they're so similar and they'll also interbreed.

I would also suggest to chose a neocardina sp. of shrimp as all 4 of your shrimp are cardina sp.

Thanks for your advice, I good a lot of shrimps from Speedie "Nick" And KANGSHIANG, so I think I'll keep CRS and CBS on this tank and keep the rest on the Edge in my room.

I dont think that the Erio Japan is happy with the glass bubble hanger, but can't wait to get it inside the tank :whoo:

I really like how you used the niche for this tank. It truly is the focal point in the room. What are all the rocks underneath the fireplace?

OMG... paint/replace your outlet and switch covers. Sorry, I'm a nut about things like that. Absolutely love the wood wall feature but those covers drive me nuts... lol. I have some OCD.

Thanks, The rocks underneath the fireplace is my "collection" from 40 bags of Mexican Beach pebbles that I used for one of my project last month. I only found 2-3 of them in each bag, and they have really nice texture, and white circle rings on them. I'm plan to use it for the floor area in front of the fireplace when I have time to replace the carpet with hardwood floor.

Thanks for your though, but i wont change it because the house color theme is White/Black/Gray, and all the outlets and switches including on the Black/gray walls are white. In addition, all of decorations of the house are white. So that, they make really nice contrast and detail along with another things
