New substrate!
#1
I just thought I'd share a few photos of my 54L tank that I have just swapped from gravel to sand.
I used to have 2 severums which got too big for my tank and didn't get along all that well, the stones were perfect for them, but since returning those two to the shop, I have now got a bunch of smaller fish. I didn't think the stones were suitable for the smaller ones, so I found some pool filter sand online.
I even got a new air stone that produces super fine bubbles for better oxygen in the tank.
I'm going to get a back for the tank so it hides the ice cream tubs storing my aquarium stuff behind and I'll get a few smaller plants, maybe a little log for the gourami's to swim about in.
I'm really pleased with the outcome, let me know your thoughts [Image: ef190473de82c0b1f977e99f7f581f5a.jpg][Image: b536cd77db11fbc47c7c146de7fd8f20.jpg][Image: 6ed58837e82722084237eae5e2ddbccc.jpg][Image: 7b2c9dfb6830e64ec31608958cd7b68d.jpg]

Looks like a fun tank.
I'm not a lover of plastic décor but each to their own, as long as the fish are happy & healthy.

They seem to be doing well so far. I am considering having a little cherry shrimp tank with a few live plants in but I'm happy with the artificial plants in this main tank. Plus I'm a sucker for cute things, hence the crocodile I just couldn't resist.
I think as I'm not all that experienced yet with owning fish, I'll concentrate on keeping the fish healthy for now instead of having to deal with both fish and plant health
I was considering maybe adding those little suction cup plant holders you can get and maybe adding live plants that way in the main tank, we'll see...

Won't a croc grow too big for the tank and end up eating all the fish???? Wink Big Grin
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! Big Grin

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!
