took a pic! this is one of the tanks and i am still messing around with how i want it to look, and waiting for the background plants to grow in so the back looks a little bare sadly. the other tank is not close to done but i will share it once i finish! i'm still looking for a nice spiderwood piece.

It actually looks good right now!

I would add a black background, (black trash bags are cheap and effective. One of the best ways IMO) get some taller plants for the back, (Anacharis, Amazon Swords, etc.) and wipe down the glass.

thanks for the feedback! and yes haha the algae got a bit out of hand, i was actually growing it out a little for some new shrimps for the tank to munch on but decided to wait on the shrimps while i deal with the corydora problem. so now i have to deal with cleaning it off haha, it is what it is. and i have background plants growing in but would like to get some more, just waiting for it to fit into the budget. thanks for the tip on the background!

Looks great! Be nice to see the progress as plants grow but it's already a lovely tank :wub:
