55 Planted before and after
First try at linking to or uploading picture...
Here is my 55g planted tank at the end of April:
Here it is the 2nd of August:
I have a picture that is not angled, but need to resize it before I can upload to my album.
Here is the black and white "full Monty" view:
For more views/angles, check out my TFK album. Comments and aquascaping suggestions always welcome!

Very nice aquascape, I like the look of the black background on the second picture, helps to make the plants stand out.
very nice... the swords are doing very well in there :-D
I agree with BarbH the black background does give a dramatic statement to the tank. Think I might do that for my 65
The background was really simple. It's cheap solid black fabric purchased from Hobby Lobby, clipped onto the back top of the tank (tank rim) with three really large (1"?) spring clips like you use to clip papers together. You can change the background easily, just buy another color fabric (navy, etc), two minutes later, background changed. There is a problem with reflection since it's not mounted directly to the glass.
Nice tank! Have you tried any foreground plants?
Very nice! I love the driftwood!
I still need to clean up my floating plants a little and trim my Rotalia that's reaching the front glass now...
