They look pretty sweet derimmed. Do you plan on keeping them lined up like that? I like it.

This is what I have planned.



I'm deciding on whether to have three separate layouts or one layout.

That width worked out nicely! You must have planned it like that

At first, I wanted to do one tank but finding a cheap light fixture for it size was hard.
Then I thought of two tanks which I can do either 32" or 16". 32" was too long for my table and 16" is where I had trouble in the beginning.
Finally I settled with 3 tanks at 24". This gave me more choices for a light fixture.

Nice triptych Are you planning on continuing a scape through all three tanks? Or are you planning like FW, SW, FW or something else?

If you managed to pull off one big scape spread across three different tanks (especially if the stocking in the three tanks was different) I think that it would look really cool.

First time I've seen something like that. This should be pretty cool. You going to go same theme for each tank or have 3 seperate themes?

If I can get my rock layout to "combine" then I'll go for one theme. I'll post pictures and let you guys decide if it works or not.

Tanks on table


Substrate and rocks


I don't like that layout. Doesn't flow together. Probably need to go look for more rocks.
