Just spent the last hour fiddling with the tank, and wanted a fresh set of eyes.

I up siphoning up the aquasoil in the foreground and replaced it with sand. It was pretty dark with all the plants, and the baby tears that I had planted weren’t making any progress. The sand really brightens things up and I’m quite happy with it—even though it’s probably going to be higher maintenance.

Would you make any changes to the tank? There are two honey gourami, 6 scarlet badis, an assassin snail, and some shrimp. I’m toying with the idea of adding some CPD… they are beautiful little fish that I’ve kept in the past, but I feel like that will be pushing it.

Thanks for all the feedback. I’m going to keep pruning to keep things in check, but you are right… some plants will probably get too big.

So far I’m digging the overgrown jungle look, but that’s just me.

Also, to the person who recommended painting the back… which paint would you recommend? I’ve used the black (vinyl?) backgrounds in the past, but was never satisfied.
