    Just redid my daughters tank. Did some trimming, rearranging and swapping out some plants between her and her brothers tank.

    Some pics are better than others. Hope you like. Let me know what you think.

    Awesome! I love natural, jungly tanks like that, I'd take one over a bonsai type Amano landscape any day...and I bet, so would the fish :)

    I would have to agree a black background would look much better. Looks good as far as aquascaping is concerned. What are the tall plants on the right. Are the vals?

    @ Smokey - yes they are Vals, locally collected last summer out of Penn's Creek in Central PA

    Thanks everyone for the kind words, and you're right I should get a black background on there.

    Very nice! I was kinda surprised not to see a "kid decor" tank but a pretty, natural scape. Lovely!

    @ fishorama - both of my kids have 20's (my sons tank is on here too). They're both into nature and aquatic habitat's and such so they really didn't want the "kid's decor with "the clown puke gravel and the spongebob figurines".

    I gave them some plant options of what I found here on the classifieds and at other forums classifieds - they picked what they liked. We talked about fish and what would work together and what should be in a school etc, then they made their choices. They picked out their own driftwood peices. They are getting well educated in this hobby and both like it. They help with tank maintenance, water changes etc. they both feed and fertilize their tanks every day.

    They over feed sometimes like any kid would, but all in all, they do a good job and I'm pretty proud of their efforts.

    Tank looks great. I love how richly planted it is and how natural it looks. Nice piece of driftwood too.
