  1. Sunflowers would add some nice color

  2. It’s an unheated, fresh-water, approximately 48,000L

  3. Nah I say let it grow. I like when tanks get overgrown and untrimmed. Looks so natural!

    Oxy Clean stain remover 🙂 it works on all my old tanks 😀

  8. Fun fact, they were called “water carriers,” “water tanks,” and eventually just “tanks” as a code word to disguise their true purpose during development.

  9. Have you considered adding CO2

  10. Maybe add a Betta but just one

    You’ve already got a lot of iron and decent light so u suggest adding red plants like rotala and alternanthera to really take advantage of your situation

  12. Shrimps would do the trick, and a few snails

  13. Need bigger for a beta

  14. https://store.speedtree.com/store/norway_spruce_sapling/

    Not sure if these will grow with iron content that high, but it’s worth a try.

  15. What substrate do you plan to use?

  16. Probably some good ferts in the surrounding ecosystem to help bring it back to life, just avoid the land mines.

  17. I love the responses 😀

  18. A javelin might open it up a bit

  19. It needs a tractor.

  20. Literally a planted tank 😂

  21. More bladder snails. They’ll fix it.

    Paint a school of cardinal tetra on it.

  23. How about adding a spruce?

  24. add more pixels

  25. With some red wood

  26. Nah, it looks perfecty fine according to one former superpower’s standards.

  27. Would love to know how some of thse tanks ended up here. Sure seeing a Sherman on a beach kinda makes sense given how many were around in the Pacific during WW2, but who the hell leaves Chieftains lying around in the middle of a forest, Walker Bulldogs in the middle of (stunningly beautiful) fields, or M2A2s on a bloody mountain?

  28. If you just want to start completely fresh, I hear people are just leaving their tanks lying around. Not a lot of new models though.

  29. I think it’s spruced up enough.

  30. It’s probably pining for the fijords…

  31. Do a squirt o fert

  32. Use some Russians

  33. Blood spatter

    Too soon imo

    Edit: jeeze guys

  35. Is this the “best equipment” we’ve been promised for a month now?

  36. Trim the tops and replant those. Add 1 or 2 nerite snails

  37. A little good of TLC can do wonders, and clear up some Blemishes after a while

  38. Some flower boxes on the sides would definitely help

    Add shrimp!

  40. Have you considered changing out the soil? Sometimes there are gases that are trapped under it, and the best way to release them is to poke some holes in them.

    Usually an uber stick helps.

    Do a 50% water change

  42. Maybe a few shrimp

  43. Is that an E2 or an E8?

  44. personally i like what you have goin here. your tank looks so natural and in some ways it tells of story

  45. Cover it with moss.

  46. It’s perfect as it is.

  47. CO2 and ferts, obviously. Way too much light for the amount of nutrients.

  48. A water change and some trimming will do the trick

  49. Ask a Ukrainian farmer.
