nice layout, not too busy or crowded, and once the plants start growing more it'll be a delight to see that betta prancing around between the leaves :)

What a lovely java fern!

I hope the little betta fishy recovers. Poor thing looks exhausted.

I love corydoras. But who couldn't? So active, so cute, and then they come in all kinds of shiny too.

The vittatus are looking very new still, like they don't quite have themselves sorted out yet. How are they doing? Is it just the white sand that makes them all pale?

(thanks for the pictures, Eddie. I would have missed a great tank otherwise) :)

yeah that is kind of what I did... finished up my projects at the time and took some time off to do something easy and fun you know!

my next idea is setting up a feed breeding tanks.. Im going to put a 55 on a rack at the bottom and then like 4-5 tanks above... like 3-10's and 2 20's?

idk just in the thinking stage right now
