Thanks a lot Nikolay for all the encouragement and detailed evaluation of the layout. You are always welcome to come check it out. I am thinking of adding some more Boraras to get a better density for the future pics. Comparing my layout with Luis's is a big compliment for me .Bushan,
This is the nicest 10 gallon tank I have every seen. Positively. Now I REALLY feel sorry that Pedro and I are not going to Houston today. If we did I'd want to see this tank in person.
Your tank is an wonderful example of how a small tank can be made to appear much bigger. The transition from dark to light when looking from left to right is beautiful. The details in the dark left side are just like some of Amano's tank have them - creating a feeling of a natural sight. The umbrella plant in the left draws the attention to that side of the tank. The focal points are designed with extreme precision! Until now I've known only one person that could conceive and bring up such a tank to this state - Luis. The four leaves between the riccia, the narrow leaf JF that sticks out, the height of the crypts... VERY impressive!
