looking like a good start... but your right it does look like cloudy water.. and in the second picture looks like theres little to no gravel? is that something your working on building up? ( it will only benefit you in a deeper gravel bed for more room for the "good bacterias" and for your live plants roots to grow)
and as for the ? why not a nice big piece of drift wood and you can grow some live plants off that ( i.e. java moss, or really any moss, java ferns..)

In the first pic, yes, Im going to purchase more gravel, I will get more tommrow


I was thinking of adding some drift wood, So it would be good to make a pleco happy, but in the right

I had this in mind
(give me a minute)

lol nice the underwater water wheel..

i have a cave buried into my gravel in my 55, it blends right in, looks natural and really cool.. and there was a hole in the side and a small hole in the top.. idk if it was meant for a bubbler but i put one in there and its sweet.. bubbles build up inside, then release every couple minutes..
...wish i had pictures

you can do alot of stuff tho with the bubbles, its all about getting creative, like have driftwood or a rock over the bubbler so they escape out around it, thats pretty "natural" looking- well atleast compared to a little skeleton man holding a treasure chest that bobs open every 20 seconds..

and its cool about your "comment" dont even trip over it :wave:

MARIOPARTY53 08-12-2008 01:48 AM

I think I might stick The water fall then drift wood on the left sides of the tank with living plants

watcha think?

onefish2fish 08-12-2008 01:50 AM

do you have any idea what kind of fish your putting in there? i see the tiger barb, but what are your plans? or you dont know yet..

I want to keep smaller fish in here, but yet an Big enough envoirment for The fish to grow

onefish2fish 08-12-2008 01:59 AM

the waterfall in the middle and driftwood on the side?
i think that it would work, it always is your tank your rules

see me personally im a fan of all natural tanks, or as natural as i get it.. meaning using basically driftwood,rocks and live plants although i always wanted to do a tank of a submerged city..i think that would be sick.. like nyc underwater, with all the buildings and ofcourse a statue of liberty but i dont know what to make buildings out of and i dont have a big enough empty tank to do it in at the moment but as i said your tank your rules
