Wonderful! The tank looks great, and you have shown an excellent example of a low tech, low maintenance design.

Thanks guys! Yes, it was neat to have such a large low-tech. But I have to confess...I am considering a high-tech right now...if I can manage finding time to set it up. I already have all the equipment I would need, but what I was missing was a small, easy-to-manage tank. So, a friend of mine gifted one to me...I almost feel "obligated" to set it up. HAHAHAHA!

On a more sober note...I forgot to mention...this tank is no more. My wife an I had to do alot of rearranging and cutting back on hobby-type stuff, so it is now home to a mixed-cichlid community somewhere in Houston. On one hand I'm sad that I couldn't keep it longer, but a 125 is alot to manage...even for low-tech...and it would have been sorely neglected in the coming months.

Sad day on having to tear this tank down. It was truly beautiful.

Totally forgot all about this scape being entered into any contest...it's been a year since I last knew anything of it, but when it was entered into AGA it got submitted automatically to ADA's world-wide contest. Well, yesterday I get THIS is the mail:



Out of 2,021 entries from around the world, this one ranked 618! That may not sound all that great to most professional scapers...but to me, being well within the top third nationwide with a low-tech, filterless, no-CO2, El Natural tank is pretty darn good!!! Thanks to Kevin (kwc1974) who played a major role in scaping this...and getting me the hardscape. And thanks to Houston Area Aquatic Plant Society for making this tank possible!
