It looks good though I like the way it looked before to be honest. On the new setup I think I would add a piece of driftwood on the right side of the tank and spread out the plants a little more (just my opinion). Though once the plants fill in it might look good the way it is.

I'm hoping to get a really nice dense look on the right side. It's going to take some time to grow but I think it will come out awesome.

I like it too.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Nice job I love how the substrate looks.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Nice work. The previous and the new are both nice, two different approaches. Good photos of the fish too.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I just got a t5 ho, with a life glo bulb. I am told that will be enough for my tank and what i am aiming for. The light is WAYYYY brighter than what it appears to be on the pics, I adjusted the camera so you can actually see stuff.
