Comments the main pic is as of 7/2011-I had to take out a bunch of plants to create a little more swimming room, and my rainbows snacked on a bunch. Still a work in progress. I like the plants, but they are still primarily there to keep the fish happy and healthy Started this tank 11/10 after upgrading from a 37 gallon.

I am not a fan of light or white substrates. Other than that, it's a very nice, natural looking arrangement. A scenic background would enhance it even more. Nice fish.
