Wow! Great looking tank. And your photography skills are amazing. I can't believe you are going to tear it down. I would love to have a tank that looks that good. I guess us aquarists are never satisfied. What kind of fish do you have in there?

crs home

Just curious...why did you build a crs home? Are they more comfortable that way? Does it help for breeding? or was it just for fun?

Thanks!

Hi Emmore,

Thanks for the kind remarks. ( i am in cloud nine now) ..it is only nice on picture..haha.

I have been hesitating to rescape but it is getting too dense and each time after pruning those stalk plants,the bottom leaves gave me an untidy look and errr..some like toninas uaupes,rotalas actually melted or turn brown due to lower sunlight received.

So i decided that i will redo the tank..though i being talking about this a month ago.. .

All my fishes, tetras and platies have been shifted to my nano tank.

Hi Wezshot,
Nothing serious about this home. Just for entertainment or playground for the CRS and some forumer called it "condominium". They are more happy with more hiding places and thus feel more secure.and when you add in some moss on the roof top, you get a rooftop garden and CRS food.
