my wife's tank

My wife's first planted tank too. She has a piece of real driftwood that will be done soaking next week. Other than that, how does it look?



Thanks again!

Not too bad! So far it's looking good. It'll look even better when you have real driftwood in there. The only thing I would suggest is changing the substrate later on.

Oh yeah the aquarium is looking nice but I could see only one fish. The water appears blue in color and it is also clean. The life inside the aquarium is looking beautiful but am sad on the part that I can't see fishes where they are supposed to be.

I would at least move the airstone somewhere else in the tank, or better yet, I would replace the airstone with a small sponge filter, because then at least you add onto the usefulness. She only has the one platy? Its a rather decent little planted tank she has

I have tried to hide the tubing its next to impossible to get the air stone to stay down if it's not under my wood. I was thinking about getting the black tubing. Maybe it will work. I don't want to take or out I really like it and I like the bubbles where they are to fill my empty gap. If it comes down to it, I will replace the airstone with more vals. But that will take time because we bought ALL of the vals from our lfs.
