Wow, my kind of tank. The centerpiece for the room and larger than the TV!

Looking forward to updates on this tank's development.

Could we see closer views? I see an angelfish but what is a rodostomus? Rhodostomus, rummynose?

More information on the equipment and plants would be nice.

Holy schnikes, that's a big tank! Just about need scuba gear to clean it. Looks really well set-up, too. Love the wood.

Both look great! How does that grapevine work for you? Does it hold up pretty good? as far as rotting wise

Grape driftwood purified from the bark, and the rest do lorikarii and Ancistrus. At first, a little water color. They do not rot and have a nice texture.
I consider them the best in terms of price, quality, beauty.
