Aren't you afraid that one of those rocks will get knocked over from a digging cichlid and bump your tempered glass and shatter into a million little pieces and dump your tank water and all its contents on the floor? Regardless of my fears for you having to clean up 100 gallons of water and millions of pieces of glass your tank does look nice so I hope you the best.
Oh my, sorry if it scared you.. BoooHH }
Me not scared..
1- Tempered glass shatter when rock hits it; well, my rocks are stacked to hold strong in place, and we often underestimate the real resistance of things.. Once i tried cutting my glass panel not knowing it was tempered glass.. got out all my bodybuilder strength on that panel, tried cut, hit it to brake apart, smashed against floor.. and to this day that panel has nothing more than a few scratches.
2-Because it is made of 13 panels, it has a flexibility that most tanks don't have, and which ever floor/base table/tank itself - irregularity that occurs is often compensated by the flexibility of the tank.
3- BONUS proof; In the last 3 months we had two earthquakes in Montreal... If it survives earthquakes I think its safe to say; no more worries

You can train your fish not to associate net with fear..
Put it inside right before food time n leave it there inanimate. Do it many times a week, your fish wont fear the net n will freely venture inside.

Congrats on the flowering underwater plant, looks like an echinodorus plant, the flowers only last a day or two at most :-(

WOW I think you just helped me convince my wife to let me set up another tank that's really cool, think I'm gonna do some RCS and maybe some tetras with it thinking of some dwarf gouramis also

fantastic job one of the best looking tanks I've seen in a long time

Wait a second, I thought the first batch were zebra cichlids? Or are both spawns from the jewels? Very handsome parent!

What do you feed the fry?

Hahahaha.....

2 X batches of Zebras from 2 females..
2 X Batches of Jewels from same parents..

Very fine flake food works best so far n keeps water sorta clear considering the over population of fry lol.

You are incredibly talented! I've always wanted to grow plants out of the HOB filters, but just couldn't find plants that would do well and I couldn't find a way to hang lights that looked decent. I'm very impressed. Keep the ideas coming, I'm learning alot!

That tank really tied the room together
