Yeah Devin, you've outdone yourself. This is incredibly colorful, and should look even better over time. The fish are a wonderful addition!
One question.....what some did you use?
Thanks very much. Yes I hope that it will shape up as the plants grow in some more.
That stone is old highly-weathered bricks that I found in the river. It would otherwise be very colorful and gawdy to use in a layout, but I think that it works well with this combination of fish and plants.
Here is another angle shot...
And here's a better view of the riparium foliage...
it looks awesome, the bright plants and deep backgrounds make the tank look as if it kinda goes on indefinitely.. like, when you look into the side panel of a large tank and get that other perspective kinda thing going on..
