Personally i think you executed your layout leaps and bounds better then Amano's!! I love all amanos work, and that one you showed is no exception. However, yours is much more unique and thought out. Its wild and tame all at once, i think its fresh and exceptional.

Hopefully you got some good pictures of it before you changed it:)

One of the best new tanks I've seen here on APC in quite some time. Simply fantastic layout and plants. Gorgeous.

Very, very good! The hardscape is a true masterpiece. You also chose the plants perfectly. I would love to see a full frontal shot of the tank!

Thanks again for all the coments and compliments here,

what did you use to hold the wood together at the base? did it effect the pH?
wonword I just use stones because the right wood is just one! About pH, no effect I guess.

I take one picture today, i think is better then other ones, the colours are more real, I hope you like it!



Regards,

Luís
