Lovely fish avatar
Nice job with hiding all the equipment, hoses etc. Looks natural. There is one thing that strikes me a little odd: the overall purple tint possibly caused by your choise of lighting tubes. Otherwise very well done! fish avatar
Hey! That looks great. I love what you've done with the rocks! I've always wanted to create a little house area like that in min! Great job! fish avatar
