    So this is tank number 3 - its a 4 foot Juwel.

    Currently bare bottom. In the process of investigating a substrate to add and upgrade into a fully planted tank. Low tech for now.

    This is my display tank currently. The Cories from my 3 foot will come into this tank once the substrate is in and settled.

    Thanks guys, appreciated.

    I was supposed to be a lot further as I was planning on moving this year I was waiting to move first - so I decided to just go ahead with it anyway and see what happens...

    Always been a huge fan of juwel. How much did you pay for the tank?

    I like the minimalist design.
    Far from being sterile, it still looks clean and healthy.
