very nice display of time & effort. Some colour would compliment this great tank though in my opinion. Still.....a very nice tank. fish avatar

Wow, looks so "serene". A tank like this must keep you calm and relaxed 24/7, lol :o) Looks GREAT !!! So natural-looking. Like some beautiful wild meadow! fish avatar
it's nice to see an orignal tank, love the plant arangement fish avatar
Your tank looks absolutely superb. Certainly and "All or nothing" approach to a planted tank. Congratulations. Can you tell me a bit about management? How hard is it to maintain your plants? What sort of preparation did you need to make to put rocks in etc? Matt fish avatar
Awesome Tank fish avatar
