This thread still live? The more I've searched through different examples, the more this is the look I wish to next work from for inspiration, and I finally have the room for it finished, so time to start filling that empty reserved corner with a nice tank.
How clean does the white forefront sand stay by the way in a tank like this, anyone? I was thinking of adding a powerhead or two on a timer which are angled towards the front of the tank and which would kick on for say 20 minutes twice a day and hopefully blow any detritus into the back? Would/could this work to keep it looking relatively pristine on a day-to-day basis?
What are the foreground plants peaking over the driftwood by the way, is that Staurogyne repens?
