My aquarium used to look like this ...

Feeling nostalgic about how healthy my aquarium once looked, now it's just a mess.

This does look great. Have to differ with anonymous though, a good aquaium will be mostly plants... much more natural and healthy. I'm considering tearing mine down (29g) for the first time in about 5 years, and not putting it back up for a while. Only a few guppies left anyway and I have a nephew with an oscar /:-P I havn't been without a running aquarium for about 15 years. When I DO get it set back up some day, I only hope it turns out as nice as these pics.

My sentiments exactly, Don. My main motivation for keeping the aquarium was the plants, the tetras were just to add a dash of life. But it was hard to maintain, especially the riccia which I kept once. Now the only thing left in my tank is the java moss, which is becoming quite a mess and looking like a jungle!
