the fish in your avatar are great examples of willing to eat other inhabitants, too bad they grow pretty long

Very nice.
If you want to breed some guppies, let me know. You could probably just set them loose in the tank... I bet they'd breed faster than they're eaten.


As for the gravel- It's dark enough to not stress the fish, and it's pretty obvious you're not going to a super realistic look.
That's okay, and a matter of preference. Most people would pass up on dark brown for a substrate, even though technically it's the most 'natural'. Bleh.

Never thought of having a 'natural' color like a dark green or brown. The blue kind of reflects the light and gives the water a clean blue overcast. Maybe it's just my eye's imagination.
Google says Dino Eels grow 10-12'' long.. i wonder how fat and bulky though, I'd love to see a full grown one. I hope nothing else in the tank eats or murders it, doesn't seem too likely right now.
How would I breed Guppies? Just throw a handful of males and females into the mix?
