Rescape/Tank Updates


Thought I would post some updated photos of my tanks.
This is my 46 bow front community tank. I really need to clean the rocks huh.

I will be getting more plants later on this week for the right side.

One of my ten gallons which will be the future home for some chocolate shrimp.

The other ten gallon which will also have shrimp, once all the baby plecos are gone. What kind of shrimp I do not know for sure yet. Will change the substrate out after all the plecos are gone.
Attachment 204945

The five gallon hex that will house shrimp culls.
Attachment 204953

And last but not least is my critter keeper/nano tank that has Fire Red shrimp, and some Blue Bee. I know that some people will not like the jar thing but it is ok with me.

Nice tank! Needs more plants, but it doesn't matter what I think...if you enjoy it.

Love the critter keeper. May I ask how much water it holds? I have one that I planted up but it only holds about 3 qts or so. Yours looks so much bigger.

I will be honest to you. But you will be hurt.
Your tanks setup/scape are below average.


This one has too many focus points. Big rocks are nice.
But that branch is nice too. But since they are both
same sizes, I suggest stick with 1 theme - either rocks only,
or branch only (with smaller rocks).


This looks better. Once moss grows I think it will be nice.


Ok-ish. Im not a fan of that broken pot though. Also that bush on
the left should not be at the front.


This is nice. Probably u can add more moss on the left side on
top of the stump.


Those pebbles are eye sore. Nuff said.

Cheers.

Ok my turn.


I agree, this one is a bit "busy" I think I would take the large rock out of the middle and put something taller in the back (plants(larger leaved ones), rock, wood, whatever).


I like this one but don't like the gravel. It looks fairly natural except for that.


This is nice but again that gravel and I think it could use some more plants, maybe some small ones since you already have the larger one.


I really like this one! I wouldn't change it except maybe to go with one color gravel.


I really like this one as well but agree about the pebbles and don't like the little dish. Other than that though, the tree, rock, driftwood, all wonderful.

I really like the wood...I think black planted substrate would really set everything off too! I love shrimp tanks!

Thanks everybody for the suggestions. I had to use the substrate that I already had on hand. I will eventually change it out. The one ten gallon that everybody said needs more plants will eventually have them as soon as I can get all the baby plecos gone, then it will be a shrimp tank as well. The critter keeper is around five gallons, its the large one.

They look very nice, good job.

And classy move taking suggestions and critical comments with grace and then doing something about it.

Thanks that is why I asked for comments. After seeing what some people said I was thinking the same thing. I am planning on redoing the substrate in the hex tank sometime tomorrow. Will post new pics of it then.
