30 gallon (mid to high tech)

plants have been doing grate but i do have some algae. i think mainly because i have some inconsistency with my lighting and firtz and my CO2 (using DIY). i also think that because the water here is not as hard as the water at my school the algae has a little bitt more of a threshold. ether way i will be going pressurized after my next catering job.

this tank really hasn't seen much maintenance (i don't even think it got water changes) when i was away. just recently i cut down the drift wood that was in there to give it a more open feel. not sure if i like it but i think i need some more plants in there anyway. would love some suggestions there.

ya well i think i would like it a bit less crowded then it is right now. i'm think slimmer and brachier wood switch out the moss (say for flame) and switch out the sand for something more black (want to try fluorite black actually). also need to add more plants in there. some nice low light stem plants that could do without firtz would be nice.

very cute, if you want to improve the four my suggestion would be add in a bit more of the plant on the right on the back and a little on the side. Lol, but as someone who is fond of small tanks, you gotta change the water every week.

ya i know i'm just not always around the tank most of the year (it's at home while i'm at college). when i from college at the end of the year i found that my parent had let almost a 3 of the water evaporate. so really the only thing i'm keeping in there i think would be the betta because i know it can tolerate it (also the fish isn't even mine it's my sisters i just set up the tank because i felt bad for it)

about scaping for it thats what i plan to do actually i just really need to work on it (brake down and redo the tank).
