I recently just set this up and think it came out really cool! What do you guys think? suggestions on what fish/ inverts to stock?
I'm not done yet, I may add a sump or custom rig a canister filter with 4 inlets and outlets. I need a way to heat these too.... Here are stats on each tank:

Tank 1: custom mini sponge filter, amethyst crystals, anubias petite, cabomba furcata. Dosing phertz, excel and flourish.

Thank 2:Mini sponge filter, driftwood with slate foreground and rock background. Java fern, anubias petite, blyxa japonica. Dosing phertz,flourish, and excel

tank 3: this tank has a dirt bottom(mgopm) capped with sand. I'm dosing phertz, flourish and using a hagen mini elite with DIY co2 pumped in plus exel for good measure. High tech tank to pamper the staurogyne repens tropica that is dying in my 90g.

Tank 4: custom sponge filter no dosing at all, mgopm bottom, black sand cap, crystal and lava rock. Ludwiga aromatic....sp? This ones not really done yet.



Update, tanks as of 1/20

yes i like tank 3 the best.
for tank 2, do you have any substrate for those blyxa? assuming thats what they are. every other plant is fine w/o substrate but i think blyxa might want some.

Nope no substrate. I've been growing them like that upstairs in my 90g and they do ok. I can't get blyxa to stay rooted no matter what I do anyway.

Ohhhh these are awesome! I love tank 2, but the rest of them are also great. I wish I had the room for this! I'd have a different color community of shrimp in every one :)

It would be intense if you found rock or driftwood that 'carried' through each tank. Or if you could create some type of river that links all four. Thatd be amazing :)
