Awesome tank. I'm a fan of 125g's and find them challenging to aquascape because of the 72" length. But you've done a nice job. Any updates?

Looks good! I love how it looks like the stump is regrowing after falling over.

Terrible indeed! Curse you and your stunning tank lol jokes!

Looks great!! I actually like the longer leaf look on the ferns, do you have a lot of flow in that area to make the leaves move?

Several types of spiders can "walk" on the film on top of the water.
Their body is not heavy enough to break through it.
That would be the same film(not a technically correct term) which causes a water drop to hang onto anything and when you overfill a glass for the top to be rounded.
Love that scape and especially the Cypress.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

looks great! The carpet and rocks hint at a large scale iwagumi but then the stump, java ferns and swords make it look like a natural style tank. You have yourself a super-sized natural iwagumi scape. Quite the niche!

Wow! I really really like your tank. I'm working on a very similar design. I think you really captured the natural "river" look very well.

You didn't mention any CO2, do you inject any? I'm not injecting any in mine, and I'm hoping I'll be able to get as much plant growth as you have!

I hope you can find a friend with a good camera so you can get some glamour shots. I know the pictures you've posted don't give your tank the justice it deserves!
