Post Your Barebottom Tanks Here

Recommended Posts

So, I'm going bare bottom (my tank) soon and looking for ideas to make my tank interesting, not baron or sterile looking.

I'd really appreciate it if any Kokonuts would post pics of their setup and talk about it :nana

Thanks in advance :)

Thanks Chris :) the glass marbles are very pretty. I too have some marbles from when I visited Lisa and Molly in Grand Rapids a couple yrs ago. Do you hear the :goldfish: pushing them all over the place?

It's not a great picture, and it's a work in progress. Someday, when budget allows, I intend to add a Tardis.

Rob, your new tank set ups are really cool :thumbs: I'm so inspired by them :heart

What's you background Rob?

I'm wondering if you'll be offended if I steal your idea :o

Thanks! The background on three of the tanks is just black paint. The 75 (with the buddha) has no background. I did not paint it before setting it up.

 

I would never be offended by that. It's not really even my idea. It's just bits and pieces of things I've seen along the way and picked up on here.

Chris here... Homer, your tanks are awesome!!! If I didn't have such a black thumb I'd consider a planted tank... I can't eve get avocado seed to sprout in the window... And the duckweed I got last month for the fishys is looking soooo sad... ????
