Johnny's 55G Renovation!!

Hey Y'all...as you've gathered from some of my posts, I've been in the slow process of slowly converting my 'arctic' tank to a more natural look....

This is what the original tank looked like.....it was great at first....but I got sick of the brightness and I learned my fish didn't appreciate it also....here's the 'before':



Over the past few weeks, i've slowly swapped out the gravel, to avoid a mini cycle....here's a pic before there was any extras added....the huge rock was something I picked up over christmas...



I decided i didn't like to look of the darker blue background and switched it back to black...I also ordered some driftwood....I fell in love with three pieces I got....2 tall ones and 1 'humped' shaped piece for the middle..here's the first one that was added...I also added my new dual lighting unit i got in a few days ago....



Next came the middle piece....



Then the other 'tower piece'...



So the whole new tank looks like this....




And here's a picture of my new favorite fish...my kribensis!! I've never had a fish photograph better than this guy.....



All and all, i've never been more exicted about a tank....here's the total before and after shot....

BEFORE:


AFTER:


Thanks everyone for checking out my updates!!! I'll update my plant build soon enough....i'm still working on my plant shopping list...
