Well that is sad. Those tanks looked so cool. But I am sure you can make this one look great too.

The five gallon leaks.:( But, I got my money back from the seller minus the shipping, and I am going to try to find a way to fix it. So since the fish will be here next week, and I already had plants, I had to set it up. I still do not have the lamp I ordered, or the substrate, so it is nowhere near done. But here is what I have so far.

The sponge filters and sand arrived, so I started the internal part of the tanks. I will update as the water clears with better pics.

Here is a sneak preview~

Thanks so much Shelly.:)

Today it is looking much clearer. The 5 gal is still a little cloudy, but it has a whole lot more in it than the 2.5.

I want. Those little seahorses are the most adorable things ever. How did you decide what plants to use?

Thanks so much everyone! :)

I have kept planted tanks on and off since 08'. I am buying and sorting through some, others I know I will like because I have either had them before or they stay small. Lots of research, trial, and error. ;)
