Ok ok, so Dagger (my half-giant plakat betta) is done, his tank is cycled and seems happy (tonight is testing night). I made him a new background with black foam, sheets of cork and brown think scrapbooking sheets to look like tree roots. I like the effect!

My serpae tank is almost done, just need to add some live plants to my suction-pots. It is home to 8 serpae and 2 tiger nerite snails.

My VT tank is a work in progress, it's also currently a part of an ant-trail  :I-Thank-You:  . it's been raining and they  (sugar ants) always move inside, never on this particular wall but he's probably getting extra snacks if any fall into the tank. I got him driftwood finally.

They're actually notorious bullies and never mix well with angelfish unless in a HUGE tank and a school of 6 or more. I got 8 because I decided to make it a species-tank (the snails weren't even on the original plans hehe). These guys are going to be the only fish in this tank. They determine a pecking order of sorts and then can live more peacefully.  Think betta sorority minus the murderous serial killers. The snails are named Captain and Morgan. The fish are collectively named after Peter Pan characters as I still can't tell one from another except the really big (probably really old) one, I call the tank Neverland. Rufio (another character, from Hook though) is my VT, his tank has quotes from Robin Williams "Bangarang" and "To live, would be an awfully big adventure".  Pardon the mess on his tank, it's still under construction and he's recovering from a filter-fin-ripping incident.

Interesting designs! I love seeing how people do their tanks and yours are a nice mix of materials. I'm a natural plant kind of girl but the texture and quality of the ones you're using looks pretty great :)
