    My girlfriend says I just need to leave it alone... I disagree. Dont want to move it around too much but I want to make it flow better for the fish and for myself. Thanks for the compliment!!

    First, we don't need to tell your gf that she's wrong... (if you expect anymore hugs in your future)... Unless you have one of those MEGA-EXTREME planted tanks... changing things around is always fun!

    Your first two photos were a nice improvement, but the second two photos were a significant improvement! My preference when it comes to decor, is an open area in the front of the tank with back ground stuff complimenting it.

    Never hesitate changing decor around, that's part of adding to the experience!



    PS... not a fan of a big white pvc piece in the tank... kind of ruins the natural look. IF you must have it, then you may think about putting gravel over the rest of it...
    Yup, I got fish!

    Well i didnt tell her she was wrong... But i just went ahead and did it anyways... Not much better. Good idea on the gravel covering pvc. Its just temp until i can get something different for my bgk. I hung it from the top of the tank to get him away from the cae that was beating on him and he loves it. So i figured i would leave it.

    My wife's always telling me this too. Trust me, if you ever get to the point of marriage, the critiques only get more intense.

    Like, "leave the tank alone, you mess with it and the fish die."

    My mental response, "if I never maintain it, all the fish die."

    Very nice! The composition is a bit formal on the first one, but still a nice look. Lots of color, which is visually very appealing. Is that a background mural, or the reflection of the plants on the rear glass? I think the murals are always a nice touch, especially if you can make your own ...

    Looks like you have some glofish ...
