Krayz's 20 Long

Well after seeing all these tanks on here i originally felt like mine looked like a joke with all the fake plants.But now that i have real plants and have a good scape going (thanks brad) i feel more confident to post up pics of its current state.I know there are some beautiful tanks on here and mine is no where comparable to them but i would like to start this journal to share my tank with people. So here goes.

10 Kuhili Loaches
8 Horned Nerites
1 Zebra Nerite
1 Blue Snakeskin Guppy
1 Cardinal Tetras

2 Least Killifish (also 2 fry)
6 RCS
11 Sakuras
11 CRS (ONE IS PREGGO)
9 CBS
2 Rudolph Shrimp
4 Chili Rasboras
4 CPD's

Have quite a few more additions coming this week.

The Flora contents:
Java Fern
Tawain Moss
Christmas Moss
Weeping Moss(not doing well)
Flame Moss
Hygro Sunset

looks great. I like how you used the pvc pipes for tunnels. I assume it is for the kuhli loaches. I might do that and slightly bury it to make it look like a gravel tunnel.
