Hi people
Recently I became part of this great community, and I would like to be able to exchange ideas, criticisms and all the information needed for my new project. Currently, the aquarium will be emptied and retired to a new planted for this final year (31/12 to 01/01 are the only days off that I have) ... And as you can see is a mess, with poor layout done and many without care ... Only the first messes this aquarium was good, with beautiful plants such as cabomba furcada red.
After much work, saving and sacrificing my youth without amusement hope to reap a beautiful fruit, and I would like you could guide me.

The layout on the left side was inspired in Across the River, in general, want to recreate a landscape of the region of the Araguaia River (border between the Amazon forest and open field typical of the region north and center-west Brazil).

This rock has a unusual format, which gives idea for the creation of a landscape, and more specifically the fall of the water "Salto maior do rio das Pedras na chapada dos Veadeiros, Brazilian cerrado," hope to emulate the system of the aquarium that was seventh place in the championship of the ADA of 2007.

Looks like its going to be nice.

What are you trying to say in spanish, "that hug"? I don't think you are translating it correctly. No offense intended, just trying to help.

It is pretty common in Brasil(portuguese not spanish) to say UM ABRACO at the end of a post. Its kinda sending a hug to somebody. Sort of Best regards.
