Right now yes, things are growing and thats good enough for me. Aquascape wise no, but I'm pretty sure when things begin to grow and look lush then I will be a happy camper. Though I believe any aquarium has the potential to look amazing as long as the keeper is willing to be patient and believe he/she can do it.

ummm... then don't read them. Your name isn't highlighted green, so why are you policing.

No, I don't like my tank right now because I am doing a major overhaul. I spent over an hour cleaning 1 bag of flourite last night and just put it in my tank. It's going to be a bag a night all week, so I'm not a happy fish tank girl right now.

Seriously cleek, I'm dyslexic and have to have extra lessons at school because of my English but I try to make sure my posts all make sense.
It's a battle for me to make sure everything Is spelt correctly and that punctuation is used properly.
This would have been a great thread if you didn't spell everything like an infantile jack plank.
Please, for the sake of people like me, who don't like having to decode every post you make. Learn to spell, infact, no, go and get firefox and download a spell checker then all you'll need to do is right click and it will change on its own.
Sorry to moan but It really was bothering me, It's something you get barred on other forums for.
Now for the answer to your question:
I am happy with my tanks, not so much my ability to keep algae at bay, but the scapes, to me really work. Each one has a flow and a charm and even though they have their faults, the algae, I am happy with them. I know eventually I'll have them all under control and creating a more challenging scape and better plant growth will be within my grasp.

Honestly, right now I am not happy with my tank. I only have four plants in there right now (one banana plant and three amazon swords) and the swords are all melting away (perhaps too much light, not enough ferts?). However, on the fish side of things, I am content with that. I've got a metric buttload of guppy fry that are looking good enough to sell back to the LFS (if they take em). Guppies are my favorite, just for the variance and ease of breeding them. Have had them since my first tank at 10 years old.

It always comes down to money, though, for me. I simply don't have the money to invest in plants and ferts at the moment. However, I just got my first job offer for after I graduate college (took it ) and once I get everything budgeted out I should have much more available. That is when the tank will begin to look presentable (I hope).
