Before and after, post yours too if you like.

I am at home sick today, silly head cold that started in my throat and is now residing in my sinuses with a little lung activity. So you guys get a little more posting from me today than normal.

Anyway, my daughter is at home from school today also, same thing, and she showed me the first tank picture that I sent her so I thought I would post my very early tank layout and now shots. There area few more plants from start to finish as I started with about 9 varieties and now I am up to 13 or 14 but always only one bunch of each.

The span is a little over two months.

It's a 37 gallon tall with canister filter, LED lighting. First shot is with the betta only, second shot is with cherry barb , emerald catfish betta and cherry shrimp with an assortment of snails... not that you can see any of those in the shots.

The plant list is in my profile tank so I won't copy it here.

This is my tank before and after I installed an extra 2nd filter. This is only after about 30 minutes it looks like there is no water in it right now it's so clear. I moved the tank around just a little bit too.

Very nice, with the spot light shining on the betta!

I wish I had so many plants,I only have three kinds of swords(2 slow growers and 1 super slow grower)lol.

Any way great tank, I wish you the best of luck with it.

And may the FISH be with you!
