Very beautiful tank! I like very much the middle part with the moss and the fern. Very nice!

Sincere congratulations!

Nice tank!

A good selection of plants, and some really fine fish you found there.
I really think, you made a good work with the driftwood and the stones. It really looks "nature" like, despite that itīs scapet - of course! That can be quit defficult to achive.

Good work. I think i will keep this tank in my mind, when I start scaping my own island scape soon.

Best regards from Nicolai. Denmark.

Once again great work! I am intrigued by the substrate arrangement. Looks like you have a slope the AS really steep toward the back, then covered the lower part with sand. Won't different layers getting mixed up with time?

thank you for your comments

Bunbuku , there is no Aquasoil under the sand , all of the AS is in the background after the stones delimitation

as i wasn't stisfied with the hardscape , i did some major changes in the higher part of the hardscape today , it's going to look better , i'll post some new pictures soon
