    Ok, here it is, I've never done this before so ta da!

    I'm not finished yet, got to put my heater in and maybe a couple more plants, but what do you all think?

    Made my first moss tree, may need more moss at the front... may not... I'm one of those odd people that like something one minute and then not the next, (At the minute brain is happy with it!)

    Welcome to Sandy Crack. (hee hee)
    This is like a little valley, the picture doesn't show it very well but one rock is set more to the front and one more back, making a rocky valley. (Please ignore the mess, I will tidy my sand up)

    I'm not too sure at the minute, In another tank with rescue fish from work that the boss was going to flush I have one bristolnose pleco, and two lonely glowlights (Plus I have three cherry shrimp)

    So I think I'll add them, maybe get a few more glowlights (Even though I'm not a great fan) just so they have someone to hang out with.

    I would like to get more shrimp. Have a little Shrimp Kingdom happening, Maybe add another little school of tetra, or I do like pearl danios. Or Try and find a very pretty Betta and have a peaceful group with him.

    All ideas welcome :D

    After a small bump along the road with husbands bad measure skills, I've done them myself, so this is the new size:
    31 and a half inches long
    10 and a half inches wide (Which husband said right!)
    20 inches deep

    Whoa. That's a big tank:shock:

    Well, your options are nearly unlimited then! Or did you mean to write centimeters instead of inches?

    God, now I feel like a turnip. But no, sadly I've learnt never to trust a man with a tape measure, after doing it myself I can see that my husband did read it out in centimetres! (Even though I asked for inches!!)

    I'm sat here laughing to myself now!! What a fool!! :;laughing
