    I like the natural stones you put on the bottom of the tank. They make the tank all come together and look more natural. I love the new look.:;hf

    As long as the natural rocks are safe to use, I wouldn't see any problem with the tank. Some rocks you find yourself can change the pH or have some bad chemicals on it.

    So either tank is good for the fish. There isn't really a "better" tank.

    The rocks were bought at a garden store ..... and are pre washed and aquatic safe :) ....... I filled a bucket of my aquarium water, and washed them in that before applying them to the tank :)

    Thanks

    It looks great! I hope you're enjoying it.

    Watch your fish for a little while to see how they react to the rocks. You should be fine.

    You'll actually need a LARGE driftwood cave or the like for your featherfin. ;)

    Tank looks great, good for you!

    Thanks for the nice comments :)
    Fish are still doing great, my Gourami has taken a liking to my Betta, and they seem to "hang out" alot lately which is very weird.

    There's been a few changed lately in Equipment wise ..... changed filters for a single Eheim Professional 2224 and also a new Eheim 3702 air pump :)

    Well today I purchased a few new pieces of driftwood to help re organize the left hand side of the tank, so that the featherfin has more a secluded hiding place :) ........ Will post up new pics tomorrow :)
