change the substrate to sand and get rid of all the cheap looking plastic plants and do something about the different colored rocks or wood or whatever. your fish will stand out a lot more. Either way I see some nice fish in there.

Or you can leave it as is - if that's how you like it. Your fish don't seem to mind. It looks like they have plenty of hiding places in the tank and yet they're all out in plain sight - just the way you want it! It looks good to me.

If you changed the substrate to sand, it'd look 100x better than it does already! I think it looks good, because the fish are just so **** good looking. Nice work.

And yeah, it's what you like :thumb:

Looks much better and less crowded. For some reason gravel makes everything seem crowded to me. Yes I have gravel, but I think I'm willing to pay up for some nice sand. Love the natural flow of the sand and how you have all the rocks somewhat symmetrical, but then you have the pot off to the side. :thumb:

I get $4/50lbs play sand and I think it looks great! I don't quite understand yet why people are getting anything else, like the expensive stuff.
Home Depot around here had play sand for $6 for 100lbs...which I purchased, of course.

You should chilax... he posted his tank and I offered my opinion, which he has taken - so I win.
