20H Rescape


A couple days ago, I lost 80% of my fish, due to a retarded co2 system. Not only did I lose my precious 1 year old angels (ironically, I bought them on Valentines day last year when they were just little dime sized) I also lost the fry that two of my angels were caring for.
Since this tragic event happened, I realized that this could be a good opportunity to re-scape the tank.
Before the gassing:


After the gassing:


Lucky for me today, A lot of snow fell on New York so I stayed home











Tell me what you think!
Need a new centerpiece tho.
What other plants should I plant?
Im planning on adding some monte carlo and UG.

Before gassing was lovely. The angels are stunning. Is that a whole cucumber? I think your supposed to slice it first. Lol. I really like the before pics so I'm sure the rescape will be nice too.
That looks like a lot of fish for a 20 gallon. 6 angels, 3 flying fox, 3 bushy nose plecos.

It was half a zuccini, the plecos and saes used to tunnel through it. Yea lol Its actually 9 angels. I bought them from a breeder in pa last year. I wanted to get a pair. Turns out I got 3 pairs out of them lol.
