3 males, 6 females guppies, not sure about the Cherry Barbs, it seems that 2 of them are a nice red color and the other 2 are kind of pale red.

Sounds like you have a beautiful tank going. Try feeding brine shrimp, maybe your cherries will brighten, or maybe that is female/ male difference. Thanks for posting your project.

thnx rsskylight04, yes I did make them, it seems that when its cold outside I tend to have alot of time on my hands hahaha. I used a terracotta pot and aquarium glue and aquarium stone. The tubes were grey exterior electrical pvc. Same glue same stone. It seems that old habits are hard to break. I find myself staring at the tank and constantly wondering what to do next lol.

I actually have another ideal for a corner shelf but I'm not sure what to use for the top. Some thin plastic that can be molded to my liking or something of the sort hahaha. I did make a cave like structure out of a CD spindle top and larger stone but I am not sure I like it lol.

Thnx willow, they were actually easy to make just time consuming. I basically put each stone into place hahaha I can add the pic of the cave if anyone really wants to see it.

Thats what I am doing lol. I hate the cold. In the summer I am always outside. So the tank gets much more attention in the winter hahaha. I have some Java Moss and some Subwassertang on the way. I want use the tubes for pillars of a shelf covered with the same stone and put either the Java moss or the tang on it for a blanket effect.
