Hi

I had to setup a temporary tank for my fish when I rescape and modify my livingroom tank. So I cleared up a shelf in my bookshelf and modified it to handle the weight.

I didn't have much time on this setup. Used 2min on the scape and used plants that was in the other tank :p

Hardscape/soil (Taken from the former livingroom tank) :
- Fluval Stratum Shrimp Soil
- Thauistone
- Redmoore wood

Plants:
- Microsorum pteropus
- Anubias Barteri
- Heteranthera zosterifolia
- Ludwiga sp Repens
- Echinodorus tenellus
- Lilaeopsis sp
- Lomariopsis lineata
- Vesicularia ferrei

Fauna:
- Thiara Winterii
- SAE (Yeah, i know they get way to big for this tank, but they wont be here for long)
- Otocinclus Vittatus
- Nannostomus Marginatus
- Danio Margaritatus
- Amano shrimp

Soil in:

The rest of the hardscape:

The finished product after the water cleared:

Hope you like it, even if it's not a thought through scape :)

Hi all,
Watch out for your Dwarf Pencils jumping out. I think it is most likely to happen if they start spawning.

cheers Darrel
