Really impressed with the stand, as well as the tank. Good job!

absolutely beautiful tank, I love how you painted the stand to match your wall color. Time for fish I think! what livestock are you planning on putting in this beautiful tank. also, i think your carpeting is great. so many people use the same plants for carpeting, hc, glosso, dwarf sag, etc, but i love how you used a variety of foreground plants to create your carpeting in the front of the tank. i think if you highlight the red plants and the l. aromatic it will be even more stunning!

Thanks Jacklyn. Yes, for the foreground I wanted the messy, natural nature's look. I didn't want just one type of foreground. I wanted to mix it up. The color of the stand matching the wall so that the attention is on the tank and not the stand. Highlighting the red plants will definitely bring some pop to the background good idea. As for fish, I'm going with discus. I placed an order of 6 discus from Kenny's Discus in Daly City. I can't wait for them to arrive.
