Pics of my mini 5 gal and 18 gal planted

So I thought I would share a few photos of 2 of my aquariums. The first one is a planted 5 gal which has some sort of moss and some hornwort and a peice of driftwood. It houses 2 bumblebee gobies and a dwarf puffer. My second tank is an 18gal tank. Ive got a nice variety of plants in this one. It has some anubias on driftwood, javamoss on a floating piece of wood, 2 banana plants (started as one but split), java fern, duckweed, mariamo mossball, val, moneywort, hornwort, and dwarf hairgrass.a bit of everything :D. It houses mainly a figure 8 puffer, 3 tigerbarbs, 2 corydoras and a redtail shark. Im in the process of relocating the 3 barbs though. Any comments are welcomed. I'll add more pics later, my cam died.

It probably my camera setting, I didnt want to use the flash and I used nighttime setting so the pics are clearer. Ill try to get better photos later or tomorrow.

Those are indeed lovely. Don't use flash for tank photos, just fiddle with the light settings. But I must say, if the tanks are somewhat dim as they appear in the photos, you're bang on; the fish will be right at home.

On my computer screen the pic is a tiny bit darker than the actual tank brightness. I think it kinda depends on what screen you are using. The fish in the tank however are perfectly happy, and my puffer is doing excellent. Ive had him for 2 years now. The plants that have been in there for awhile have been doing great besides the moneywort (I think its still in shock from moving from the other tank I have) and no algae problems so far. Ive gotten the puffer to eat just about anything and he also lets me hand feed him some things like shrimp.

Um, Aren't gobies and dwarf puffers brackish? What's your salinity at?

Dwarf puffers are definitely not brackish fish. They are completely freshwater. I have no salinity in the tank. The gobies I have are a freshwater breed and do not require salt. Infact they spawned in the tank once already.

Thanks, Ive actually moved the barbs and tetras now, so the puffer has the whole tank to himself besides a redtail shark which they get along just fine.
