I love the purple background, reminds of the evening sky as the sun is setting. How did you acheive this effect?
It's actually a purple color on the walls of my livingroom:

(have no fear, it will be painted white soon ;)

The piece of driftwood is awesome. Is that one piece or several pieces put together to look like one?
It's two pieces. I'm not satisfied with the left part (too massive). But I've recently flipped them over, and I think it will be somewhat better proportions because a larger part of the massive branch will be buried deep in the gravel (work/growth in progress):

Maybe you should leave the wall behind the tank purple, it makes a quiet a interesting background effect.
Acutally I think I might have the paint somewhere on the attic. Hmm.. Perhaps paint a cardboard, but there are several colors I would like to test in the future. The orange-look the ADA-winner had a couple of years ago I think was really neat.

I checked out your gallery, some great pics. Did you take all those? Your pup is so very cute!
Yep, I like to take bubble-pictures =) The pup is my girlfriends Chihuahua, and yes it's an amazing dog. More dog than any other I've met - despite it's size. I've gone from being an all Border Collie/Sheltie-guy to a complete Chihuahua-maniac.

I also see that you too are in love with Chocolate Gouramis?
Yes, it's way of examining everything in the tank with it's cameleon-eyes makes it feel so intelligent, and the coloration and shape is also very nice.

Re: a freudian landscape ?

Yes it might be.

I called the scape "The hug" in the AGA-contest.
When you entered the room with this aquarium the driftwood welcomes you with open arms - a hug. The middle part is not the penis, but in fact, the neck+head. The left and right parts are the arms.

One Swede compared it to a Moose-horn.

Good scapes I think invokes feelings =)
