I wish I had the knock to make my scapes have that "Natural" look. Mine, which I still enjoy, always end up looking so humanized.

Wow, that is amazing! Really looks well done.

I'm curious on that light as well, it looks like an ADA solar, but probably much cheaper. If you can could you find the website?

The light is 3 ft diy t5 that i bought at Home depot and i just made the housing in ada solar style. A lot of the stuff on this tank I tried to do it myself but i am thinking of getting LED setup and rimless tank but thats a lot of $$$$.

Here is a pic of the jungle



and another one after some trimming.

I think either white background or no background works best. opinions?

Very nice Aquascape work. You really show how one can have a nice tank on a budget.

I vote for the white background. I feel it gives a better feeling of depth. I think it makes the viewer want to look deeper into the tank.

Wow, very nice. I bet that looks crazy in person with the 40B depth.

Def. one of my favorite tanks on this site. The entire setup compliments each other so much. If I could find some driftwood like that, I would like to convert my tank over with it. I will use your tank as one of my references in striving for never ending greatness!!!!

The worst defeat in the world, is when you give up.

Holy crap! That's awesome — I love this tank! Nice work.

Also, I agree with the white background comment.

Really appreciate your kind comments so thanks a bunch. I think im going to leave the background as is meaning no background just the wall behind it. Thanks again

Very nice set-up - love the natural look. Personally I vote no background so it can be viewed from both sides.
