This is the third installment of the What is my set-up? series. This post is about my 40g breeder All-Glass, Malawi community tank. The substrate is CaribSea sand (Moonlight).

This tank is a bit understocked. It was actually set up as sort of an emergency because I recieved extra fish with an online order I made. If you look closely, you can see the Elongatus peeking out from below the large round rock on the left side of the tank.
