Thank you for the comments.
New photos as soon as I end planting the tank and fill it it water.

The rockscape looks good. What plants are you planning?

The tank was planted and filled with water yesterday.
I will post the photos as soon as the dirt floating in the water from the Akadama Special disapears.

I will add the Rhodostomus maybe tomorrow since not only the filter but half of the Akadama and 25% of the water came from another aquarium.

See you soon

Very nice tank, Andre!! A tad "thin-ish" on the right side of the background, but nice otherwise. That will work itself out as the background finishes filling in. Great job planting, buddy!

Very well-planned and nicely laid out. I'm anxious to see it once the backdrop grows in.

when I look at your scape I can clearly see that you have really thought it out and I definately can see what your going for. I think your going to be really happy with it in a few weeks once everything fills in. its definately not a copy of your inspiration but who wants to copy, its your inspiration to create your own. Which is what you've accomplished, very nice!! :D

just had to add this... this is the first tank i've seen in a very long time that really pulls off riccia. It adds so much to your tank, most times it seems like an after thought or forced, in your tank it seems so natural.
