Manini - may I ask how you've acquired such a huge amount of A. petite? They're everywhere! And freaking beautiful!
I got a whole lot right now from breaking down one of my tanks. These were grown for a while now. Roughly about 2-3 years. Let me know if you are interested in some.

Gorgeous setups you have going on. The wood/stone complimenting is great. Also, great use of some easier plants. I def. aspire to have setups like these one day. Thanks for sharing, and I look forward to seeing more down the road!

The worst defeat in the world, is when you give up.

You are clearly very skilled. I love the large ones and your wife's mini M is just awesome!

Hope you stick around to give us less skilled people some pointers!

Thanks for sharing.

Wow....the ones I've seen at the shop was just a small taste of your work! Every tank is different, but awesome! That's why I always need to stop by for inspiration and to talk-story.

Not sure how I have missed this thread until now. These are terrific aquascapes - nice wood and rock selections and beautiful texturing with the various green plants. My own taste veers away from heavy use of colors other than green so I am especially attracted to these.

It is rare to see so many of this quality by one person. It is doubly rare that they can be viewed by the public in a store! I congratulate you and thank you for sharing them.
