That looks good. Though I might suggest maybe some rocks around the base of it or maybe that and/or some almond leaves. To make it look more natural.

That is a beautiful tank! I agree with Boredomb about adding rocks around the base of the wood. It would add a nice finishing touch and a smoother transition from the wood to the sand.

Its looking stellar clubber

Ive always and i mean ALWAYS wanted to do a natural blackwater tank for my severums. Its a long long story on why its not blackwater now, but your tank is exactly what ive always wanted. Im feeling inspired to fire up the ole 26g hex in the garage.

whats your current stocking list for it?

Thank you all very much!

Honestly that's a very good idea, right now it's lights out time but tomorrow I shall add around the base of the new stump for sure.

beetlebz, your severums would love you for it. I wanted to do one for years too and it felt good to finally take that leap! You'll be glad when you do it.

Blackwater set ups with pieces of branchy wood, rocks, leaf litter and maybe some twisted roots with little floating vegetation are simple and fun to arrange IMO and I don't think I'm going to grow tired of maintaining this one. I'm already planning my next one which will be for chocolate gouramis, glass catfish and maybe some otto's. Kuhlis are also being considered.

As for the current stock: 2 angelfish (not a breeding pair but have been housed together for several years), 2 ram cichlids, 5 silver hatchetfish, 9 rummy nose tetras, 4 pando cories, 1 BN pleco.

and 2 mystery snails 1 gold & 1 chestnut. These may be the odd men out non-native to BW...not positive but I've heard mystery snails may not be the best for BW but I love them and so far they just crawl on my leaves but don't munch on them that I've noticed.
