Revamped the tank! Still cloudy but you get the general idea.

Ugh sorry to hear about that. I didnít even think of that being important with the tank (washing hands)

Thanks all!

With a little help from @vvDO -- it turned out way better than it would have. I am not an aquascaper, to be sure.

I very much like the final result. Excellent plant placement. To me, that's the hardest part and probably the most important. Cheers

Thank you.


Plant placement is a tough one also, isnt it?
I have a lot of plants between my 8 tanks to pull from. So it makes it a bit easier.

Hardscape is always the hardest for me, though.



I was thinking about how I want to restock this tank when it is ready--weeks from now. Instead of PRL, I think Id like to try something different. The vendor Im been buying from recently has Orange Eyed Red tigers, which is something you dont see very often- I might get these. Hopefully he still has them when Im ready.

Or, if not, I may try the Pure Black Line Shrimp instead of the red. I already have a tank with some PRL.

Still debating the type...

Thank you @cubecrew



Ive never been much of an aquascaper and never will be, but - I have learned a little through reading journals of some very talented scapers.

What do you think? Should I get Orange Eye Red Tigers or Pure Black Line Shrimp for this tank?

I am driving myself crazy trying to decide --------------

Seeing as I've never seen OERT's in person, I'd have to go with those. Plus, selfishly I might be able to buy or trade for some later!
