Here's the winning tank and its description
img_5561-1-jpg.162106

Here is my 20g high aquarium. It has come a very long way since I entered it in Janurary!

Plants:
Moneywort(recently added not much growth yet)
Jungle Val(recently added not that much growth yet)
Water Sprite
Pearl Weed
Salvinia Minima(floating)
Cabomba Caroliniana

Most of the plants grow fairly fast so I am able to sell the trimmings on etsy

Hardscape:
Oak sticks(I gathered this myself. Nothing better than finding your own aquarium decor :) )
Malaysian Driftwood(bought on etsy)
Random rock from the fish store

Stocking:
Neon tetra(x11)
Cherry Barb(x5)
Red Eye Tetra(x3 I know they should be in a larger tank. beginner mistake)
Corydoras virginiae(x2. There were more but they died :-( )
Few pest snails(ramshorn)
Food:
frozen daphnia
frozen brine shrimp
live mosquito larvae
bug bites microgranules
bug bites flakes(spirulina and color enhancing)

The tank gets a 50% WC weekly. Dosed with Seachem Iron and Flourish as necessary.

Equipment:
Quietflow 10(filter)
Eheim 100w heater
AQUANEAT LED Aquarium Light(just added)
DIY acrylic lid

Parameters:
Ph 7.3
Gh 180ppm(i think)

NOTE: The picture may look heavily edited but its just lower exposure and taken at night with minimal adjustments to make it look as close to real-life as possible. :)

Congratulations!
I remember from a previous thread we discussed the oak sticks you'd added
Oak sticks(I gathered this myself. Nothing better than finding your own aquarium decor :) )
And I said how much I liked how they added to the natural look of the tank, while you said your mom didn't like them, thinking it looked messy? Seems others agree with me that it looks great! :Dtrophy1


I hope the others know how hard it was to choose a winner this time though, all of the tanks entered were awesome!

Congrats, great tank! I love the Neons. They flash me back to childhood just like the smell of a new box of crayons, Ivory soap, or finger lickin' good paste glue. I wish I could keep them alive :(
