Looks unbelievable, this one had to have taken more skills than the 180g. Is there not a nicer buce tank out there?

At anyone time, there's no less than 30 flowers going on in this tank.

It's not compete either, it has about another 3-6 more months to go before fully developed. I'm going to start trimming soon. No choice, there's nowhere else to put the plants now, and allowing more growth will shade the others too much.

It's like a thick Bonsai tree that needs a trim.

How does it look in the front? I like the wild jungle feel you have, especially with the stream of fish rushing towards the picture. Does the front of the tank share the same theme? It be interesting to see a tank with different themes based on view points, I'm toying with the idea myself.

Your technique in attaching the buce is intriguing, I can't tell if it's string or gel being used.

What are the specs on this tank, like the lighting, ferts, substrate, co2, ect?

I want to put an emphasis on buces when I re-do my tank, since they are very pretty and seem easier to maintain than stems

Neither, I use holes in the wood, or zip ties, tried string, never lasted long enough.

This is such a unique tank and very beautiful.

I love the looks of the first shot with the light looking like sun shining on the surface. Are you using t5's on this tank or did you switch to LEDs?
