A lot of great shots man. I love how your aquarium looks, so many plants, clear water, looks so natural.

I'm jealous.

Well done!!! What a magnificent, wild, jungle-like habitat - both above and below the water line.

This hobby is all about personal preferences, of course, but in my book, you've succeeded in creating one of the most interesting aqua-environments I've ever seen. Manicured and highly structured water gardens are nice... but after their initial visual *POP* they tend to bore me. Habitats like yours house so many interesting areas and features that I never tire of looking at them.

Couldn't have said it any better. What an amazing, beautiful, different set up.

I was going to post a few shots of my planted 90, but don't think I will now! It suffers from the initial visual POP syndrome!!

Excellent work Czcz, from you I would expect nothing less

It keeps looking better and better. Such an interesting idea you had and took it to an entirely different level!
