Looks great, I bet the minnows and barbs think they are in heaven. Judging from the plants, you are blessed with soft water...

Wow, i've had mine for 4 weeks and i'm not going to lie. Yours makes mine look like something your thing [censored][censored][censored][censored] out. I bet you are blessed without parents who want you to buy 1 plant at a time huh? And 1 fish at a time. and you can only work on your tank once a week. Yea. I'm beyond envious. I'm jealous.

You are one of very few people who could accomplish a tank like this in 4 weeks.

Does your cross brace cause any problems? I didn't see a dark place or shadow in your pictures.

None at all, I don't even notice that it is there! That 50 is absolutely "perfect" for planting.
