Though Travis's photos look great...they actually don't quite do proper justice. I've seen this tank in person...and yes, its just amazing. You can't find a single plant/stem in the entire tank that looks bad. no stripped bottom leaves or rotting stems, or distorted growth.

Just amazing, perfect looking plants.

Thanks guys

I probably spend 15-30 minutes a day in maintenance, feeding, fertilization, etc. Plus about 2 hours every weekend doing water changes, cleaning, and pruning. It's a labor of love though and I can't say that it ever feels like work

Here's a link to a thread where I describe the physical setup in detail.
