You, sir, have gone from fish keeper to artist. That tank is stunning. That video was amazing. I am at a loss for any more words. Absolutely fantastic.

Thank you for your compliment.

Paid off????? not yet not yet JK, I see what you're saying. Yes, it was hard work for this project, specially for the 140g. But guess what???????? I love scaping, I enjoyed it so much, even though I was pissed off here and there. It's part of the game. Yeah, I was confused to have 3 journals, that's why I just combined them all. Specially when it's going to be 7 soon. Hahahahah....

I am humbled and sincerely thank you for your comments, Sir. I can not describe how I feel about those comments. I am thankful.

Oh btw, you are part of this project, Sir Cable. I don't know if you remember months ago in my journal as I was asking about what type of fish in this 140g. You said, it would be nice to have those "tons" of schooling fish in this big tank. Since then, I did a lot of research, and BOOOOMMMMM , there you have them. Rummy noses.......

Been busy indeed. That's right, you got the artistic eyes there. Manzanita flow from higher left to lower right, Naturalllllllllll babyyyyyyy. That's right, rummy noses would make amazing flows time to time. When I stressed out, I watch both video and the real tank.

Oh, wow. I totally forgot about that convo. I was right though, it looks awesome. Lol. The rummies are a good size too. Anything smaller would be lost in that tank.

It looks good now that it's put back together. When you first put the wood in it looked like it was too trimmed but now that it's planted it looks right, nice job.

Thanks 150, Yeah, I decided to go with bigger branches instead of smaller ones because of the compisition of the rocks. I tried the branchy ones, and the rocks are over powering.

I LOVE RUMMY

Hey my fellow addict. Hahahhaha, Don't be jealous be cause you are on your way to be one. Yes, I have had that idea before. Each room has a tank. Unfortunately, the down side is that maintenance. The good thing about 1 room, they look just like a collection display, plus the maintenance is so much easy with them side by side. But that's just my experience.

I'll get more pictures as I am working on my 50g.

Thank you, Sir. I appreciate your comment. Nothing much to choose for Low-tech tank, but that's why it's easier too. Fish are amazing, I love them I am still debating if I should go with Discus or not. Hmmmmmmmmm
