    And there is that.

    Tall healthy vals go for a nice price. I've been keeping my beady eye on "adult val" prices ... as I'll be placing them in the new tank. When I get the new tank.

    well it's not actually PAINTED blue... it's blue acrylic. Here's what it looked like empty, with the driftwood approximately (but not exactly) in the same place is it now.



    unfortunately the limited openings in the top make working around the sides and edges pretty difficult.

    You know in hindsight this is sort of what I did at first. Looking at the first picture again I realize that I planted my tall vals in the back and the short ones in the front, which looked nice at the time... but then after a while everything became tall vals. Derp.

    Do you mean back center, or back sides? The back sides are pretty inaccessible, one's got the rock pile and the other is dominated by java moss even after I removed about two thirds of it.

    I don't know, they've got a fair bit of algae on them. Not sure if anyone would want them.

    Wherever you have bare wall in the back. I'd also move around the hardscape ... but that's me.
