    Well for a bit now we have been thinking of making the 55 gal just for Angels, Cories, Danios and Rainbows. We had a good amount of Mollies, Platys, tons of livebreeders so we decided to take them to the LFS and the guy I know there told me if I want it to trade all the 20 or 30 fish for another pair of Angels well guess what I said? yes of course. :happy0064: So a few weeks ago looked around for 3M Colorquartz was hard to find since 3M is discontinued the product. Looked around till found a company in CA that had only one bag left of Black grade S so We got it. Have been putting it for later till today. Changed the blue and black gravel to Black Colorquartz. So also we were a bit tired of the background so I looked at the one on the opposite side and looked like would work so we flipped over and began with the good stuff. :anim_65: The wife want it to plant the tank and arrange it this time. Here are the pics. I think she should do it more often. :giggle:

    Looks awesome, Navy! If she runs out of tanks to aquascape, feel free to send her up here! I'd love some of my tanks to look like that! That looks fantastic!

    Love your new angels, too! They're gorgeous!
