                Personally I would put in a carpet anemone and clowns.

                    Maybe you should do a brackish tank and see what kind of plants might do well in brackish with maybe some rarer fish and what would do well with them

                      Something like the Zebra Blenny if you could get your hands on some.

                        I may be wrong, but shouldn't there be boards at the bottom to support the tanks? Without it, won't the tanks crack?

                          The base of these aquariums are floated. There is a rim that runs around the bottom, elevating the base glass. So nothing to support.

                                Really want a 40br cant wait to see what you put in them. Should totally put a colony of guppys or endlers with a dope scape

                                  Joey, I have purchased three of your shirts now and I like the designs, however, I really think you should consider a different vendor. The quality does not match the price on the Teespring shirts. Just a suggestion

                                    Hi Joey, I have a question regarding sponge filter. Can I use a power head on a sponge filter? how many gal per hr should it be?

                                      An Octopus would be awesome, but..... BUT!! Jellyfish will be much more lively'er and stand out more.

                                        My Pleco (small) died today. Seven years old. He always hid and showed little gill spikes when I looked at him, but he really grew on me. I think I’m going to miss him:( I’m gutted, non fish keepers don’t understand:(.
                                        Keep up the hard work king of DIY:)

                                          I'm very sorry for your loss.

                                          Had to euthanize a betta a few months ago and I think about him everyday. Gummy Worm was a good fish friend :( but he had dropsy and was presumably old, and I couldnt do anything to bring him back from that point

                                                Whether you go black background or not, you’re going to have to build up a natural scape in front of it. Whichever is easier for you man. It’s your tanks. You’re going to be more motivated about them if you keep them in the look you like.

                                                          It has been great, although I would put up a larger aquarium that would occupy all the space above if the weight allows it joining two shelves
