I was just reading an interesting thread on everyone's personal taste and was surprised by how many of us don't demand show quality design or success, myself included. So, I thought I'd start a thread to post pics of your tanks you like that definitely won't win any awards.
Here's mine. It's a 40 breeder with 2 wpg full spectrum of whatever I got cheapest, a smallish Eheim, and some pygmy cories and glowlight tetras and shrimp.
**I don't like how bronze the plants are in this tank. I also think it's a bit too....contrived, I guess...for my taste. I absolutely hate my mixed rock but I already had it so went cheap, which I do regret.
**I do like my crypts and how they've spread and how beautiful the textured leaves are. I'm rather fond of my rock stack but need to work on it some too.
**I'm neutral on the algae. I don't like this much and am battling it but do like a bit of algae as it looks pondy to me.
What's funny to me is this tank looks better in pics than in real life.
This is a 29-gallon from about 6 years ago. It was very low tech. Regular lights and no filtration. It did, however, get about 4 hours of afternoon sun each day. I loved how sparkly and weedy it was.
