Very much a work in progress and I did actually post another thread on here asking for help with it. I know that I want a garden on the left that runs into a cliff on the right but I am so stuck. Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks all :)
I like your tank a lot! Love the wood and all the plants. If your asking for ideas for a "cliff", you can buy natural slate at any of the big garden/lumber stores, and break it in the size pieces you want and stack for a ledge look. Flagstone is also good for this. Just be careful you don't put any sharp edges of slate in (they can be smoothed easily). Slate is really cheap. You don't have to buy a whole box of them, you just pay per square, and I think it was like $1.99 per square.
I had bad luck with my male blue/Opaline Gourami, so watch them with other fish. They can be very aggressive, and if you have 2 males, they will likely fight. My male was very mean to the female I had and I had to move her to a different tank. The one in the picture could be a male, but it's hard to tell because the dorsal fin in down. The males upper fin is more pointed than a females.
