Comments I moved this tank across the state a little over a month ago and lost most of my fish and a lot of plants. It's finally starting to recover, but still doesn't look its best. And my camera is no good for taking pictures of tanks; they never look as good as the real thing. I'll be replacing the photo when I get a better one.
