    That looks great. Freshwater planted tanks are hard to keep.

    A couple of shot of some residents.

    These guys have colored up wonderfully.

    I added 10 of these guys on 6-26.

    This one taken in a terrible spot to shoot especially with a bowed front as Biocubes have. I felt it was too cute to pass up sharing.

    Actually I find it no different than a reef and quite a bit cheaper.

    John I didn't realize you liked FW until I saw your sig. I think you might like these. This was my last tank before I went SW ;D

    Yeah I loved that background. ;D Believe it or not that is stryofoam that I carved out and then used drylok with paint dye to get the color and texture. The tank when I finished stocking had a heavy bio load. I was running 2 fluval 305 and 1 fluval 405. The cool thing was I built in the filtration into the background so that I didn't have tubes on display.
