Hurricane Irene left my house with no power and led to the death of this tank. R.I.P. Piranhas.

UPDATE:

Have rescaped this tank a thousand times...had moved the wood to the 30g only to end up breaking that down to convert it to Saltwater...this has become one of my favorite of my tanks and is very low maintenance...no dosing...no co2... but here's a pic of the most recent scape...still trying to decide what plant to put in the back left hand corner. Please excuse the crappy cell pic...gotta get a new memory card for my digital camera...

Oh, this is very beautiful, MeanGreenEyes. If it looks this great with a cell phone picture, I can only imagine it is even more wonderful in person. This is a fantastic example of a lovely tank with non of the frills and I can only hope mine looks this good some day.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.
