Water is clear, new background, got a WATERFALL!!!! I did it i did it i did it lol.. it took a while to get that filter to collaborate with the low level of water so i raised the water and lowered the filter
Dunno if u can clearly see the waterfall in the pics, works best with a video.. maybe i make a video

Very nice setup, I love the crossover of different styles.
What kind of plants are growing well?
What kind of filter setup did you use? (for waterfall too?)

Diggin' it, looking to do something similar.

So Ive redone the whole thing, just to raise the water level and used cement instead of clay. Doesn't fall apart!
Don't know what fish i'll put int it yet. Maybe cichlids?!? My guppies, endlers and lampayes are in the 15 gallons right now, enough space 4 all!
here are some pics

Hmm the water fall is simple a 5-15g hageenz filter cover it with ground moss and it looks part of the decor.
Plants? Hmm various tropical/northamerican ferns, avocado trees, and Misc

Great looking tank :] You could try some cockatoo apistos. They are very cool and would fit right in.

Wow. Very few tanks have inspired me as of late, but this is amazing. I'm thinking it might be time for me to try my hand at making a tank other than a little tray/rectangle.

Wow.

Wow.

Really first try, you might have some trouble gluing your designed tank together, but here's a trick, put some duck-tape on the outside of the glass pieces which you are about to clue together and some objects on each side to hold your panels straight. Glue the smallest( less high) pieces first, for stability. Use 100% reg silicon, once its dry, its not toxic.
I suggest you ask for extra hands while doing this first time!
I got my tempered glass panels at Ikea in the shelving section!
Good luck with your project !

Oh and I will look up the fish you've suggested ! thank you guys (or girls)

So I've went on a bear hunting expedition (just kidding, went hiking) in the Wild Wild Woods and came back with a few plants & moss instead..
