This is one of my planted aquariums. Slightly over grown, but it still looks nice. I do everything planted so it's sort of its own self cleaning ecosystem. I haven't done any cleaning on this since day 1 but, yet it still has around 15 fish in it, and several aquatic snails.










FOUR MONTES LATER....

Java moss, dwarf hair grass, Rotala indica and anubias.

Here's another build I have yet to complete. Got to finish some planting and a few other things. But then I'll stock it with some good fish. I have a few mollies in there because I had no other place to go with them.
Sorry for the bad pictures.

That is AMAZING! What kind of tank is that? Would that be suitable for an ant colony?

Ants can't swim.
