I think you will need quite a few more plants in this newly setup tank. Right now, it is a little sparse and needs a little bit more plant cover.

I am not a fan of petrified wood. The arrangement of three groupings really does not work for me, especially placed in their upright positions, but if you like it, that's most important. :)

Thanks for your comments!

This tank has been set up for a year now, I just re-did the aquascape by adding the rocks and some plants and moving other plants around. I'm going to let it fill a bit before adding other plants, I my do a foreground later.

I'm just opposite, I love petrified wood. I do like the look of it for now, I may change my mind and re-do it for the 4th/5th time (lost count) LOL.

Phil... Yes, I do have plans to go. Hoping to find a variety of shrimp to add to this tank. Any pointers for a first timer? Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Louie... The shrimp do great, they like hiding in the rocks. They really don't have any thing to fear since they are bigger than the fish.

Black oranda... The Licorice Gourami is a very shy fish and stays in the back of the tank. I do not see it very often. All my fish in this tank are small the largest one being the Guppy. I have found this combo of fish is working very well together, no fin picking. However the White clouds do chase each other on occasions. My Dwarf frog gets pampered, he is feed by hand.

It does have more plants then the pic shows, I'm not a good photographer when it comes to fish tanks. Some of the plants are newly planted, so I'm waiting for them to fill in. I will post a update in the future.

Thanks for everyones comments!

That's a great suggestion, I will when my LFS gets more of them in.

I like my livebearers so I think I will keep them, but thanks for the suggestion.
