New Fluval Edge Tank

Here is my new freshwater tank. I took the top off my edge. Plants are from an established tank. Water is and tank is new. This tank has been running for about two weeks with snails and fish. So far no deaths yet. I only lost 1 sss shrimp. I arrived dead. The rest seems to be doing peachy. They have been hiding behind driftwood mostly and come out after lights out.

Nice. What about a black background? Always a fan of those.

Also if you want to make the pictures load here, click the icon that looks like a yellow box with a mountain, and paste the link into the box that pops up

Thanks. Unfortunately right after I posted my photos my daughter decided she wanted to open the door to the stand and lean on it. That made the tank slid off the stand and crashed.

The tank is in a million pieces. I had glass, sand, plants, fish, shrimps, and snails all over my living room and it even made it to my dining room some how. Everything died except for a few plants, 3 SSS CRS and 3 snails. I have now put the survivors in a little critter keeper.
