Yeah, I like it a lot, kind of did the same thing in my office.

Living room (older pic):


I have one tank in our bedroom that I'd love to set up another for a matching pair too, but I've probably set up my last tank for a while. My better half is very tolerant of my hobbies but I've pushed the envelope a tad here lately with rearranging the house and sticking houseplants in the windows and aquariums in the corners wherever I can.

I don't know if I'm ever going to be happy with the Anubias and the algae that grows on the old leaves though. I might at some point pull it all and just go with Buce even though I don't have enough to cover the entire stump.

Wow! They both look great! Next time you do a video I would love to get a closer look at the different crypts you have in the first tank. Looks like you have some really cool varieties.

Thanks, I should figure out what in the heck I have while I'm at it! I ordered several fancy varieties from a seller on these forums last year shortly before getting my 3.0 lights which caused the massive Crypt melt of 2019. They were just starting to come back when I tore these tanks down, so I saved everything that wasn't clearly a wendtii or lutea in hopes of not tossing expensive plants. I know I purchased C affinis "metallic red," "green gecko," silver queen, nuri "luminous" and "telang" and a few others. I think the pretty ones with all the color hues on each side are silver queen, and the tall one on the right is a red spirilis from @burr740. Outside of those two, I'm going to have to wait until they grow in a little more.
