Great biotope 'scape. One of the nicest I've seen in a long time.

I really like this tank. The contrast between the blue of the fish with the green crypts and brown leaves is just beautiful.

That is too awesome. I hope to try something like that once I get more runners from my blackwater emersed setup.

+ 1

But the judges of AGA 2007 do not feel the same, this tank would have been worth being classified well in the category " biotope " of AGA, I think it's an error

I hate you!

Looks slightly crowded with the fish load, but I adore the set-up! Incredibly natural looking; simple, yet ornate and original enough to grab your attention! Nice job! Definitely a fan of this scape!
