    Hi guys.

    I thought to start documenting the evolution of my community tank, so here are some pics of how it started and the direction it took after a few changes.

    I will take some more pics of my new additions tonight and add them as well.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Looks great! The driftwood you have in there now is perfect for this tank! Very good plant growth also.
    Nice one :thumbup:

    Thank you @MariaS. I plan to do my next tank with the spiderwood. Just not 100% sure of what I would like the scape to look like just yet.

    I think it's time for a small update. Not much has changed on the scaping side, except that the plants have gone totally nuts. I have to trim about half a 7L bucket every 3 to 4 weeks.

    After doing my maintenance on Saturday, I saw my Honey Gourami's spawning in the one back corner. With this being a community tank, I did not think much of it, as most of the eggs were being poached by the other tank mates. When checking a little later that evening, I came across the male guarding the small fry in the bubble nest.
