Nick's Community Tank

Hey everyone here is my RE-DONE 55 Gallon Community tank. Just got the new gravel in, and also re arranged all of the plants, rocks, and wood. Also replaced my passed away clown loach with a new one today. The new clown loaches seem very happy, and dont seem stressed even after the gravel changing experience. Seriously, I just went through BLOODY HELL! Lol. Tell me how you think the tank looks right now. Should improve once some plants grow. Also will be adding more plants later. Hope you like it.
THE TANK IS STILL SETTLING SO ITS NOT THAT CLEAR YET.

Tell me what you think :D:D

Thank you Admin, cheers.
The only problem I've had with them is feeding them. When I feed flakes in the morning all the other fish get up and get some but they dont..

I was going to pick up a couple java fern at the petstore where I got the gravel...but they were all out. And all they had were high priority plants that I dont have money for. Awww well maybe next time.

Very pretty; good job! I love the plants

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!
