Thanks guys!!! ;)

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...

Thanks, I also like very much of these guys! lol... yes, the fish-eye got funny!

Thank you guys!!!! :D
