Would love to see some 40B tanks!


I have a 40B that I will be working on this winter. Right now it's being used as a grow out tank for some fry, but I need ideas on what to do with it. It should be easy, with those measurements - but good ideas for it escape me.

I'd love to see what people have done with theirs!

This is my first planted tank, and its only a few weeks old. The aquascape is pretty generic.

Right now Im dealing with a diatom bloom, but heres the tank right when I planted it. Water isnt too clear.

I am working at getting mine up and running as well. Hopefully by Feb it will be flooded. I just got the cracked trim off and just need to seal the new one to the tank. I started playing around with some scape ideas tonight. I think I will go more nature this tank around then "colectoritis" and a poor attempt at dutch I had tried with my 36g bf.
