Nothing fancy, just snapped off a few pics, thought I'd share.

Here is the 22 Gallon. I am really fond of this tank as rthe plants have really started to look "wild". This is the tank I have the Cardina Japonica shrimp breeding in (unfortunately I also have dozens of fry that keep eating them, arrgh!)



Here is the 32 Gallon. I often forget to mention this tank, but it is the first I set up when we moved in here and has my oldest plants. The large amazon sword pictured here is actually 15 inches across!



The 45 Gallon, the favored "bastard tank". The modesta's have started getting VERY bold in this tank and they can be seen all day and night roaming and patrolling the wood. The Skunk loaches are more prone to hiding from the big bruisers, but still make a showing periodically.



And the house favorite, the 135 Gallon. Finally getting rid of the Ick, and is starting to grow in.

The 135 is definitely starting to come along now! But you're right - the 22 gallon is my favorite as well. I love the jungle look, haha.

One thing I have always loved in your tanks G is the structure you use in your landscapes ...driftwood , rocks , slate etc...
Looking awesome bro !

Thanks :-) I have a lot of fun "sculping" the terrain before I plant anything, I have a general idea of what I want it to look like and then I just let the plants go wild. The 22 Gallon evolved the way it did purely by accident, I dont think I could reproduce it if I tried!

I am picking up 2 more tanks soon, and replacing the 32 gallon (I'll be sad to see it go, but its time to return the tank its rightful owner).

So Soon I have pictures of a 90 Gallon Long, 90 Gallon wide, and a 54 Gallon wide tank! I am adding an aquascaping guide to my web page when these tanks are in, so I will document my process for getting everything laid out.

Thank you :-)

The 54 Gallon I'm setting up will be a river tank using mostly river rocks and pebbles. It will be planted, although I am trying to keep it looking very natural so it will be mostly rockwork.

I'll post some pics of it as it develops
