My eclipse cube isn't much to look at, especially when comparing it to my biocube.
I have no Idea on how I should set this tank up so what would you do?

-eclipse 12
-original lighting (not really bright at all)
-The sponge on the inlet is removable I just used to because this tank used to be a fry tank.
-sand substrate
-anubias & java moss
(top tank biocube/ lower tank eclipse)

I would...
Add a nice chunk of wood to cover the inlet, attach the anubias to the wood with the larger piece on the bottom, the smaller on the top.
Spread out the java moss onto some mesh and make a carpet.
Add a light blue (or whatever color made the plants and fish pop) background.
Add some tiny little fish that swim at the top level.
:D

stack some pretty rock across the back to help hide the heater and intake and call it good. keep it simple and put a nice betta or a few small fish like cpd's in it. tuck anubias into the rock work and let the java do what it wants.

If you hadn't gone all out, that wouldn't have been so amazing, but you did and I LOVE IT hahaha! 👍

I have a 6 gal eclipse I'm re-doing w/ rock & java ferns. It's going to be a snail tank.

I like rocks - & have them (back yard) and I like - & have some java ferns.

I wanted to only use what I already had on hand.

I'd go with rock and/or DW & a bit more substrate.

Ike it's not a "thing" - just me being lazy:biggrin:

I wanted to do something w/ the tank but didn't think I wanted to take care of more fish (I worry & fuss enough w/ my 20 gal L!)

I have a zebra nerite in the big tank & think they are cool looking so thought I would have a snail tank w/ a few plants.

Easy to take care of & something nice to look at.

And of course should I find some fish I can't live w/o - I have a home set up for them!!

Love the Spongebob tank!! Now I have more ideas for mine:icon_eek:

Ah ok, because I've heard of these massive freshwater rabbit snails (orange tylomania) and wasn't sure. I've got 3 olive nerites in my 55g and I too think they're pretty. Sponge bob theme is hilarious!
