    Just wanted to leave a post of my progress on this tank. I have many others but I think this is just a good main tank to talk about as I have had only guppies/bettas before this tank.

    The day one set up allowing the tank to cycle and what not IMG_20180809_034647308_HDR.
    The tank was done cycling so I went and picked up a couple angelfish along with some more plants

    This is the giant skip ahead, I was just excited about what was going on so I never really took pictures unless a family member wanted to see how the tank was doing. But I went and picked up 6 albino cherry barbs. About 2-3 weeks later I went and picked up 6 Harlequin Hets. Then maybe two weeks after that I picked up a RTBS(red tail black shark). As you can tell the angelfish were this skittish for this long, they became more and more social as I added the schooling fish but spent a lot of time hiding. P.S Also picked up some more plants like wisteria, java moss/Christmas moss mix.

    This is where the Angels started to realize they will be okay hanging out in the front. I absolutely am in love with this tank and enjoy looking back over the progress. I do end up rearranging the tank which I may add tomorrow or whenever I get the chance. I felt I was just kind of cramming things on top of each other. So wanted to keep everything in the tank but just clean it up some!
    update.

    I kept everything in the tank for this one! Just moved it all around. I truly believe photos don't capture how beautiful a tank can look in person, but it at least tries!
    Rescape.
