Looks very nice. all live plants? Aside from the Angel and tiger Barbs what else do you have in there? ( not judging just curious ). One thing you can do with your Water Wisteria/Sprite on the right is trim the top off just below where some roots could be coming out of the stem ( or one or 2 of the stems ) and replant it in the back left corner and the back center. Just a suggestion.

I will definitely look into moving the wisteria to cover more of the back

I know the tiger barbs and the angelfish aren’t ideal. I’m working on rehoming them and adding in a school of probably serpae tetras.
The current stock of the tank is:
7 tiger barbs
2 angelfish
3 rainbow sharks
2 red tail sharks
2 German rams
1 clown loach
1 clown pleco
2 Denison barbs
1 pictus cat
yes, all the plants are live.
Thats quite the random stocking. Again not judging. Honestly i like the sounds of it aside from all the sharks and maybe the clown and denison not being in a bigger school but if u eventually upgrade to say a 125 or bigger u could get more,. We have tiger barbs and Serps in 2 different tanks.

Just wanted to post a picture of my tank and see if anyone had any suggestions for the tank or if it looks good as is.
Nice tank.

I can imagine if you put a background on the back of the tank, it would hide some of the tubes, and give the tank some illusion of depth.

This tank was a rescue project from someone who was getting ready to destroy the tank. My goal is to sell 2 of the rainbow sharks and one of the red tails back to my LFS and add a couple more clown loaches. I’m not worried about the tank being to small as they do not grow fast and the ones I will be buying will be smaller.
I enjoy the tiger barns but I feel like the school needs to be so big in order for them not to be stressful for the others and that is why I’m looking at serpae tetras
