Anyway... GREAT WORK on that scape and nice use of contrasting colors. I didn't see anything like that in the LFS when I visited the PI.

That arch is incredible, beautiful scape! I would love to see a black background behind the tank for photos, it would make it pop even more. Gorgeous.

Excellent. I want to be a shrimp and live there... but then, I would be too busy scraping the substrate to contemplate the surroundings.

Mabuhay Bian and welcome Nice to see more Pinoys around here... Your scape looks good!

Went back to the Phils. 3yrs ago and met a couple of folks in Manila (they call it EB meet) who are into planted tanks, good times! They're also PALHS member if I'm not mistaken...
