First aquascape renovation!
6 Attachment(s)
Ok so i was tired of my old substrate last week so i looked on the internet for some aquascapes people are doing and i got some ideas.
Went to my pet shop yesterday and bought some new gravel, plants, background and rocks.
After 2 hours of taking fish out, cleaning, washing the new stuff and deciding where im going to put things i came up with something.
Here is a picture of before the renovation and a few pictures of now.

Nice job. It's a whole different tank.

Oh God, it looks amazing.
I absolutely love the rocks in there...and the substrate, and the plants.
Well to be honest I've always been more partial to the more natural looking aquascapes, but still, you've done an excellent job.

And the fish stand out much better against a neutral background. LOVE IT!

Thanks everyone. Im proud of how it turned out. I think it also makes the tank look bigger in some way.

Nice work, it looks so much better. The "after" picture looks nothing like the "before" picture and that's a great thing. :-)

The black background will do that. It creates a sense of endlessness at the back. I love solid color or gradient backgrounds.
