My 2by1 - changed to twigs

Here are some shots before i Rescape the tank. Tank has become to Camoflaged, and fish Hidden. Gonna Make some more open Swimming at front of tank as most room at the back ATM.
New Light not working out as Planned - Will prob get a Luminare type. Not bad prices on Ebay for a small tank size.
Will Use a HOB Filter instead of Rena Filster, Will put Sponge Pad in Hob Box. So won't loose Bacteria. Only Prob is the shelf in the inner section, Cannot take off as all siliconed, did try to but cold here cracking sounds. Hob should be Ok Sitting on shelf.

I agree. This could be an awsome art piece in the right room. I love it.

Peace,

Your tank is very nice. I like the varied assortment of fish. What's that emmersed stem?

Tank: 20 gallons, 62 watts t5, DIY CO2

Added Some more Plants.
Larger variety of Creeping Jenny, that should not get eaten by Gouramis, Is already sprouting out of the tank after 3 days.
and an Oxygenator - Marginal Plant, Looks Lovely to me. I like it better than what Wisteria looks like.

It looks like Hottonia palustris to me. Great looking setup!

Ok - Could not resist re-scaping Again. Can't help i get bored with the scape after a few weeks. and like to try different Scapes.

I've kept the angel as Its Color is sooo Nice, He/She has red Stripes going up his/her Dorsal and done back towards tail.






Wish I had the resources to do scpaes like GMF and Rain, but I Like what I have been able to do on mY Budget.
More Java Moss coming this week, Comes in Long Poles 30 covered in it.

The fauna will look awesome with more minnows in it.
