    I thought i would post some pics of my newly decorated tanks...i had a busy day today lol.

    The first is of my ten gallon and will be the home of my betta claude. He isnt in it yet because i havent tested the water.

    The second is of my 14g. It has six blue long finned danio, and six ghost shrimp.

    They really look good, nice job.
    On the 10g, I'd be wary about the 'grass' on the bottom, is it real? Soft? If it's in anyway pointy, your betta could rip it's fins on them.

    Thanks! The grass is fake, but it does feel quite soft to the touch..that was my concern as well...it's breeding grass.

    I have had my Zebra Danios for maybe a month now and they are still aggressive towards each other. It almost looks like they play tag together

    It looks nice! Looks like a natural underwater swamp or jungle! Well done!

    Nice danios! They are really hyperactive aren't they? I like your 'fake iwagumi' thing on the 10gal, looks really cool.

    yes i will be..he has already been in a tank with the grass before, and he doesnt seem to care for it. So he stays away. I havent been able to put him in yet..Nitrate levels are at ten, ammonia at zero, pH7.6, Nitrites, zero. I dont know why my nitrates are out of control? I put three gallons of water from my 55g in the tank, and i took one of the cartriges out of the filter, and placed it in the water, in addition to the already seeded filter in the tank. Any suggestions?
