My 66 gallon aquarium.

It took me a while for myself to get to this stage. Enjoy.

I like it!

The substrate really catches my eye. Very natural looking mix of sand and different sized gravels. Very natural! The stones you have placed throughout your layout work well because of the gravel bottom. They all match, they sync up. The stones and the gravel all have the same basic rounded shape. They also seem to be made of the same type of stone. I would expect to see that in nature. Rock and gravel of similar shape and material. That is something I always notice in a layout, when the substrate and rock don't match up well.

The plants are laid out well and look happy and healthy!

Nice work!

Mike

I totally agree with Momotaro. I love how you have mixed the substrate with different size natural rocks. Nice choice of fish too.

Thank you all very much. The gravel is actually a mixtrue of pea gravel and fine silica gravel (close to sand but not quite).

Thanks,

Joel

No they aren't wild, but their parents did come from angelsplus on the net. So they are very well bred.

I just took another picture but it looks so green, i used the no flash setting and an action setting, my lights are 6500k, and my water is slightly stained with tannins, so that could contribute to that odd picture color.
