Agent13 yes they do like color, I give her alot of credit for her choices. Hers looks nice indeed. As far as mine the large pleco is making a mess of the sand, and its plugin up my filter grrrr. He will be going to the pet store today if they will take him. I wish I knew someone to give it to around here but no such luck. As for mine, blank canvas indeed hahaha. Not sure just where to go with it yet. Any Ideals ???? Anyone ??? Looking to use schools of small fish(not tiny) Corys are a must. :)


As far as fish the tank did come with 3 Gourami's 1 Large and 2 Medium. Not sure if they will stay. and some sort of albino pleco which will stay for sure.(its kinda cool)

thnx rexpepper651. For an update some of the space has been filled up, (not by choice) it seems that the led lights of a glow tank don't last very long. In fact not even three months. So I had to move my daughters fish and shrimp over to the big tank. I hope all goes good for them. I need to find a hood and light for her ten gallon tank and then I can continue with the big one.

Another quick question. I just bought some hornwort and was wondering if I can float it or does it need to be planted ?

yes float the hornwort. i couldnt get mine to stay in the sand. but that stuff does grow rather well. i really enjoyed it but have since removed it from my tank. i heard alot of people complaining about the quills or needles gathering on the bottom. i had no such issue. def a good beginner plant imo. cool thing about hornwork is its native to where i live. made it more interesting for me for some reason.

Just a tip on Hornwort...... it loves light! Soo the closer it is to it the bushier/fuller it will get. On the flip side of that if it gets too little for its liking the needles will turn brown and fall off making a mess. The plant you have floating should be fine as its close to the light but just watch the tied down plant if you notice it turning brown let it float as well.
