So the top is my 40B tank and at the moment is houses a betta and neon tetras and tomorrow it'll house 6 harlequin rasboras, 6 glolight tetras, and 6 panda garra loaches... plus a million pond snails. The bottom is my 20 gallon and at the moment it just has pond snails but it'll house various types of guppies and 6 copies. I'm still waiting on some more decor for the 20 gallon but all plants in both tanks are live. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out so far.


I have a back up 10 gallon for my betta if he decides to get too territorial but he's been with my tetras pretty much ever since I got him

I would remove the artificial decor and make a small rock scape , the current decor spoils the look

You built a shire above... and skittlelandia below... :)
Lol like I said I'm still waiting for some supplies. The guppy tank was kinda a last minute thing while my 40 gallon was in the making since like may lol

I actually ended up removing the artificial log house thing because I got spiderwood but I was debating on it because my betta loved it but he has a little fake log that he also loved kinda hidden in the Forrest of plants

These eneded up being the final results but I'm slowing adding more plants from the 40B to the 20. I am planning on getting more wood and some rocks for my 20 gallon (especially the hornwort since it grows so fast)

Your betta would love a real log just as much as or even better than the artificial log

First tank looks good but I find rainbow substrate off putting and maybe add tons of tall plants too?

Lol yeah it is. My dad was thought it was too boring when I just had my tetras in it so he got the glolight rocks and glolight plants as well but whatever (I did have it all natural looking). I just didn't want to pick through them and get all of them out lol (I did clean them before I got the tank set up).l but I plan on making it heavily planted since guppies are prey fish

Live aquaria has packs of different plants and I was thinking about getting one of them and for my 10 gallon because my one neon looks very pregnant so I want her to lay her eggs in there so the babies have a change to live unless the snails get too them and eat them. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet

I do. Honestly I can say I didn't even think about getting one lol. I'd also have to order one and I'm not sure if it will be here in time. She's looking pretty big right now so I'm thinking she'll start laying eggs like any moment now.

Noted. I always have an extra tank or 2 and I usually just put the pregnant fish in those with a male or 2 (depending how well I can identify them and the species) and I never had any issues
