Probably the best tank I've seen on this site in this style.

The small rock in front with the two white veins throws my eye off. But again, beautifully done Mot.

Mine start to school as soon as I turn off the filter. They go crazy when the current's flowing.

I particularly like how you have intentionally hidden all of the hardware like filter tubes and whatnot. I always see postings where filter tubes and CO2 hardware are so prominent in the tank it overtakes the intended view.

Nice work!

Incredible scape! Nice work. I especially like how the center path has widened slightly from the second picture to the third so I can see the path better, and it gives me the feeling there's something cool around the corner if I could just get down the path

Would love to go for a scuba in this tank!

Beautiful Scape and I love the Threadfins. How do you trim your moss so that the trimming don't spread throughout the tank?

Hi Kai. I simply take it out of the tank. Each bunch of moss is tied to either a small stone or branch. Also really helps keep the substrate clean to be able to move the moss, siphon the detritus and then put it back. Kind of like moving the furniture to vacuum the carpet.
