My 150 community
 
I can never seem to like how I set the decorations in this tank so it changes monthly:( But this is how it looks today. Lots of hiding spaces for them, houses 7 giant danios, 2 rainbows, 1 blue spot rasbora,8 black skirt tetras, 9 cories, 2 bn plecos, and a clown pleco. I work from home and this is behind my desk for when I need downtime to clear my brain or get the fuzzy eye cleared up from staring at a monitor to long. The tops are the front and back panels from a 55 that had a broken side panel I stripped. Theres a mix of malaysian driftwood, and collected hardwoods and softwoods the wife and I collected last year, the floating piece up top is rather large and I suspect like the other piece thats in there took 2 years to sink this one will take a long time too but the plecos seem to like hanging upside down on it. The string is attached to a flat rock I drilled a hole thru I attach zuchini too for the plecos every 3 days as I try and not put my hands in the tank if I dont have too. Theres 2 aquaclear 500s, a rena xp 3 and an ancient magnum 350 cannister filter on it.

Love all the wood - I could stand to stare at that a while!

Thank you, With all the driftwood I do a 50 percent water change every other day (sometimes I miss a day depending on schedule) to keep up with the tannins. I like the tea color but if I dont keep up on it it gets quickly out of control and you strain your eyes to see the fish.
