45 gallon, finally ready for fish

My 45 gallon tank finally finished cycling and even though I still need to buy some proper sized fake plants (don't have the money for live at the moment), and a background, I went ahead and put my three platies in it. My Sunburst Play, Isis, has been living in a ten gallon tank for a little over a year, so as soon as I put her in the 45 she swam for the "safety" of the fake plants I transferred from the 10 g. and she wouldn't leave. This morning she finally came out when I fed them their breakfast, but as soon as she noticed me watching she went right back to the plants. It's not much to look at right now, but I'll post more photos when I get everything set up.

Nice looking tank. I love the second pic. :)

You'll be able to find some great looking silk plants in the meantime. My 75 gallon is full of them until I convert to live.

Good luck.

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