Take a different picture, rearrange the tank
@PheonixKingZ You have to enter to win. I, along with other members, have offered suggestions but you never do any of them. You need more than anacharis. Driftwood, river rocks, variety of plants. I realize you have a limited budget. Buy one plant at a time. Driftwood and river rocks are free. Just test them first. :)

Wonderful-looking tank - and I'm thrilled for you.

I have only joined VERY recently, so didn't have the opportunity to see the other entries, but I'll bet there was some stiff competition, too. Very well done.

I've just scrolled down and seen the other entries - there was indeed a high standard. You are the best of a very good bunch.

(And Salty&Onion - I loved your tank. It's the sort I feel I would do myself - simple clean lines and nice healthy fish. You are too hard on yourself.)
