Why is there a giant bucket in there? It takes a lot away visually from the tank? Is there no way to use some rocks and slate or something to make it look more visually appealing and create a big cave (which is what I assume the bucket is there for).

I noticed the bucket in his other tank :lol: its the big fish's house so he would miss it if it was gone. Tanks coming along nicely imo just needs some height to the aqua scape - maybe a nice driftwood branch going up?

Nice score :thumbsup: Congrats.

Great steal! The second stump decoration, I have the same one!!
Maybe you could paint, or 3d decorate the bucket to look like another stump?
You have beautiful fish!
