That is simply incredible. As someone said earlier, it looks like something one would see in a museum, or a professional aquarium. I've never seen anyone keep mudskippers before either, awesome.

This tank is amazing. Please don't be like other people who have amazing tanks and only update their tank once a year.

I kinda want a brackish tank now.

AMAZING TANK!

very nice... I used to chase these guys as a kid.

Try some maco-algae if the plants won't behave.

Thank you.
You are right, patience is a necessity. If not to make one, then at least to go through the try-out and learning period.
Obsession doesn't hurt either...

To be compared to a pro like that is an honor, thank you!

Macro algae is a good idea, I've been thinking about it. There's actually some nice varieties growing right where I live, already brackish-adapted. Such as this Fucus vesiculosus:



Truly many thanks for your words, people! I'm overwhelmed by your compliments.

As soon as I get some vegetation pick up their growth in there, I will update and give you more photos.
I've had a bit of trouble with algae. Hope these Neritina turritas help me out with that

As you can see, the mudskippers have already taught them to "hold their breath" emersed.

Thanks again, everyone!
