i definitly agree, i somtimes have a bland looking tank but if you add somthing new or slightly diffrent like a new fish or a plant that is compleatly diffrent it makes the tank look much better and nice move on the root tabs!

Little update. The tank is doing great! Plants are taking off. I really love this LED.





Still no fighting at all, they are doing great.

It looks fantastic! I'm glad they're getting alone still.

What size of snails will they eat?

In my 10 gallon I have got a bunch of snails (thanks to a plant from a LFS) and some are getting to be a good size. I am not going to get my dwarf puffers until the new year. I am wondering if the big ones should just be pulled out of if the lil guys will eat them as well?!?!

PS: Awesome tank!

Been a while since I updated, tank is still doing great and so are the puffers. Did a trim today and added a second AC20 that I got for free!

Tank still looks quite incredible! I did like it more when the mound farther from the filter was higher, however.

Thanks man! I agree but it's just the way the trimming went. These LEDs make the plants grow like crazy. I still want to add some wood to that island to add some height, just can't find the right piece.

whats the sheer rating on those lags? did you go through the studs? that is terrifying, but looks fantastic.

puffer tank looks great too
