Updated 55 gallon

So, a week or two ago I found a nice piece of driftwood and some rocks to further furnish my big tank. With a big enough pot, I managed to boil the driftwood in three parts without having to chop it down and make it smaller. I hated to have to mess around with the placement of things while I had fish in there, but I figured it would mean more stress to chase them around the tank and net them, so I just left everyone in there.

With the addition of those things I also moved around the plants and some of the decorations. Everything looks so much better now. I still need more plants though. Some fuller and taller ones would really benefit the tank.

Here's the updated setup. My pictures don't do it justice.









I also gave up my pleco to the lfs. There's a big empty spot under the hollow log. *sniff* I felt so bad leaving him.

I really like the wood and the dark substrate. Sorry to hear you had to give up your pleco.

What did you use as substrate? That's not regular gravel is it?

Yeah, just standard gravel from Petsmart.

Thanks you guys. :) In a few days I'll add another updated photo. I just ordered some more plants today, and they'll be shipped on monday.

Thanks. I actually had way more rocks, but I didn't want to be in there too long spooking them, that plus I had a nice setup planned out, which I should have known better than to expect to recreate it. I went "durr I'll take pictures" which didn't help one bit. I had it on macro so the colors all ended up looking warm, so I couldn't tell which rock was where. So I was in there moving stuff around trying to figure out how I had it before, and it was taking too long so I aborted and left it as it was.
