You know, I am the first to admit I am not the best at scaping a tank, but I think I am going to take this personal now. When I first set up my 120 gallon for Texas cichlids it looked like this.
Not the most amazing scape, but it doesn't suck either
Then I changed it to this. It's not as blurry in real life.
Again, not the best, but not bad either.
Then I raided some of the plants for a different tank, and the tank looked like this.
Since then I have planted and replanted and planted some more, but the fish insist, this is how the tank should look...
I give up, they win. They are the ones who have to live in it and if they want a tank that looks like a barren wasteland with one small sword and a big pile of sand in the middle and none on the right side and algae covered glass, then so be it.
