-ground: aqua basis plus JBL + black quartz
-fertilisation: algoflash "reverdissant anti-chlorose" 1.2ml by week + pokon "reverdissant" 0.6 ml by week

What a lovely tank. Rather whimsical - the arch formed by branches and the plants spilling through made me think of a stampede. The plants seem so eager to come out front and be seen. I like the reds being used as a background to highlight the bright green. It's a reversal of what is normally seen and very appealing.

have seen this tank for real and it is just an amazing one!!!!! The depth is much stronger when you see it in front of you

Must be so relaxing to just sit and gaze at this tank I really like the natural feel of it and the fact that it's not overly scaped (as many with driftwood tend to be). Great job!

The stem lengths in the background seem inconsistent-- it's like having split ends in your hair cut. Try to train them into more natural looking shapes. Overall though, the placement of plants in fore, middle and backgrounds is good.

The wood positioning is unbalanced, and it's placement makes it too strong. It also would be better if the whole branch were not covered with moss, and if the moss were trained better.

The fish may be too small. I'd try to get an additional school of slightly larger tetras.

Over all though, it's pretty good!

I agree with Steven, you should give the moss a haircut...
Great job anyway...

Don't you have recent pictures ?
