Beautiful, Chantal. I'm extremely impressed with your photography skills.

You mentioned that you used a Canon camera. Can you please share what lens you use?

Keep it coming.

Very nice tank, it is so clean. I like the color of the substrate, rocks & the scape. The fish are beautiful & very healthy looking.

Thank you! At first I was going to use just the calcareous substrate and was suposed to get only white, but I saw some tanks with the basalt and I decided to try.... I think it got better because broke the white a little bit...
