I think it looks really good. Your water quality is crystal clear. Personally, I would add a couple pieces of driftwood in there to add to the natural look of everything. But it looks very clean.

Ya I am thinking about getting some drift wood and I like the look of it... little nervous that it will effect my water clarity which is really good right now...

You may have to let it sit in a bucket for a couple of weeks, but once most of the tannins are out your water quality shouldn't see a decline. Regular water changes will be enough to keep the remaining tannins in check.

I put a piece of mopani driftwood to soak and was going to add it to my yank and never did because the tint of tannins never stopped. I soaked the 2 pieces I have for over a month and each day the water was just as yellow as the next so I decided no wood for me, and now I dont have the Plecos any more either so makes no diff now.

you can expect the driftwood to always leach tannins into the tank....the fish (not africans) love it...it won't affect the clarity of the water ; only the color...throw some carbon into your filter every now and then and it will take the color out....you should see some of my tanks...the color of tea...but the Dwarf Royal Farlowella are breeding like crazy....spawn after spawn after spawn...and at $15.00 a fish for the young , it is going to stay the way it is...

I tossed my driftwood onto a big pot (the kind used for gumbo--BIG) and boiled it. When the water turned dark brown I drained it, refilled with clean cold water, boiled again. (it is important in this process to drain dark water and refill with cold water) Did this maybe four times. The last time, the water was the color of very, very watered down tea, barely any color. Since the wood was too tall for the pot, I flipped it with each water change. The boiling opens the pores of the wood, and the tannins are released faster than just soaking in cold water. Of course, driftwood will have some tannins leach into the water no matter how you prepare it, but this method helps. My tank has angels, so I like a little tannin in the water-it makes for happy angels! The driftwood has been in my tank for weeks, and barely a difference in water color. So if you actually like driftwood, I say go for it. Beautiful tank, either way!
