The new lighting setup looks alot cleaner for sure. You should shove some nice houseplants between the tanks...lol

Your tanks look great as always.

Thanks jynx, yes..a friend made them. I asked him to make them back when I kept bettas. I never set them up until now. He wouldn't let me pay for them. The silicone job was pretty bad though. I tried my best to fix it..but I am not great with it so they aren't perfect.
