    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.








    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything Happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    Three cheers for fish that speak their minds - and another three cheers for the fish owner who can respect that! LOL

    Looks about right. LOL When I would wake up in the morning, my plants would all be floating. That's a pretty nice hill they have there in the front.

    With that sort of scaping you could hire them out to do groundworks for people
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Actually, I think both you and your fish have some pretty good aqua scaping skills.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Thanks everyone.
    Andreah, I'm not so sure I am listening to the fish lol...more like giving up. There is just no reasoning with them and they refuse to compromise.
    Jenn, you are right, it is much easier, but I still wish I could put my hands in the tank.
    Lady Hobbs, I wish I had kept count for how many times I put that hill back in the corner. They have removed all the sand from the front corner and filled in the caves in the back corner.
    I guess to a Texas cichlid this is what is considered a nice place to raise the children. But it's driving me nuts.

    I feel your pain. I gave up on scaping my 100g a long time ago

    Hey you can't argue with Mother Nature. I think it looks good like that.

    Doesn't everyone's tank look like that?
    When in doubt, do a water change.
