Endler Guppy Mountain: Breeding Tank

Hi All.

Finished up another new setup (much to my wife's annoyance lol).

edit...most recent video:

This will be an Endler Guppy breeding tank. I just love Endlers and am really looking forward to seeing what varieties I can come up with.

No fish yet. The filter is cycled so technically i could put fish in now, but i will wait a few days for everything to level out a bit.

If anyone has any questions, don't hesitate to ask

Here is the tank.
Wood:


Hardscape


Planting


Finished Result



And of course, the full setup video:

Unbelievable work! My guppies breed in a more "mechanical" tank. No substrate for ease of maintaining. I did add a few goofy pots though.

Your work is pure eye candy. Very nice!
