Whatcha guys think?
I still need to put a black backdrop up.
Also, not so sure with my decision to plant bacopa on the left.

Stock: 10 rummy nose tetra, 10 pygmy cories, ~4 otos, 2 mystery snails, and a fair number of MTS, but not an infestation by any means.

6 ecoxotic LED 12" fixtures.

3 1-liter DIY CO2 chambers blasting away with distiller's yeast (that's how I get away with only 3 liters in a 50 gallon), yeast nutrient, and an external impeller for incorporation.

Nice Tank! It could use a little trim to create a shape the plants. I may have to copy this in my 40 breeder if I ever get the space to set it up. Oh and I like the bacopa where it is. It adds contrast to the blyxa as well as your hardscape due to it's texture and light green color.

Please post a pic after trimming it!

Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery! Thank you. Please send me a photo when you put it together.

You're right about trimming the bacopa. It just grow so fast! I'll take some more pictures soon.

Thanks! Feel free to copy it. The substrate is ecocomplete, with a brown gravel cap in some places and a play sand cap in others. The rocks were found on the coast in Maine, but I'm sure you could find something similar near most bodies of water.
