Thanks for the comments. The tank is 8x2x2. It has a 40g sump for filtration as well as a magnum 350 as a diatom filter. I have 4x96W PC and 2x65W. All are using AH reflectors. Co2 is plumbed through the return along with a co2 reactor and is sprayed using a spray bar painted black to blend it with the black back. I used EI dosing method but a tad bit toned down.

That's a long beast. You have a nice collection of snails, and a fatty prego shrimp. I love it. Any other pictures like under the hood or anything? Looks like your good with the camera. Give us more...

That's a lot of aquascape, very nice! In this case I wish you would post a slightly larger picture, to better appreciate the details. Maybe a left half and a right half shot?

What substrate is this, SMS?

Great looking layout!

I agree with a Wasserpest, a larger pic would be greatly appreciated on this one.

That is the size I want for my dream wall tank...

Someday, when I own a house, it WILL happen

i like the grouping of plants, how you keep some space empty. the black background is nice too.

i agree the aquascape of this tank is beautiful.
