I've had this set-up for almost a whole week!?! I know, right? That's like, forever.
Anyway, all the fish in it seem to be happy, healthy, have vigorous appetites, established territory, and get along (finally) in general.
Honestly, though, I disdain the aquarium backgrounds because
A) They aren't going to hide the filter(s) or heater
B) It'll get wet and damaged
C) It's right up against a dark green wall
D) It's right under a windowsill, so all the light comes in through the glass lid
so I'm not too keen on that suggestion even through I know it
A) Adds depth and helps decor look more intense
B) Helps calm fish
C) Hides unsightly cords and hardware
So yeah, any other ideas, suggestions, or what have you?
Also, what is my snail doing in the second photograph? I've had him for a bit and I've never seen that bulbous protrusion thing going on...?
