I can see they both came a long way, a good thing. Both of your tanks look nice, great job and they look a lot better than a year ago .

Awesome transformation! These testimonials are what make this site worth it.

Hey, by the way, what did you do with the red staghorn piece? Still have it? Want to trade for some plants, hehe?

Sorry GulfCoastAquarian, the red staghorn piece had a close encounter with my 1 1/2 year old Boy . He uses his high chair as a ladder so you could imagine what happened. I give away all the artificial plants and I'm all real and natural now

Phew! I don't want to imagine! At least plants are relatively harmless. I wonder if any aquarium plants we keep are toxic?

He doesnít took it from the aquarium. I took it out to clean it and wrap it up then I put it in the counter to get a box; and in second pieces all over the floor and a angel face with a look like I didnt do it . I hope the plants are non toxic because he and my wife (she is the one in charge of the 20 gallon, I hook her in the hobbie too) help me clean and trim the aquariums. After the cleaning then comes my wife with the antibacterial gel for our hands . He loves helping me and we spent lots of time looking at the aquariums so I think we need a topic for young and future hobbyist .

That's how I got started in the hobby. It was my mother that bought me a fish tank and took me to the fish store when I was 9 years old.

I have to say thanks for changing the 55 ! It looks much better now. When I look back at some of my first aquariums I cringe.

Very nice looking tanks.
