Awesome tank. Probably the most natural looking tank I've ever seen.

Thx, still working on the setup. I want lush growth with less species, but still pleasing to the eye.

Not sure yet, it depends if i can get some nice wood. Here in he Netherlands a lot of people use bogwood. The times i used it, it always seems to produce to much debris.
I've seen some realy nice pieces of Manzanita, but shipping it to the Netherlands in a box from the States is cost prohibitive.

Love it Teddo! I really like the tall bunches of stems. They look a lot more natural than the stands trimmed to be bushy.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.
