Pretty much all the tanks pictured in this thread are phenomenal, but I'm just curious to know what type of maintenance is required to keep a tank like that pristine?

Are these tanks actually kept intact & running after the photograph is taken & entered into a contest?

Some of them just don't seem practical without constant trimming every 2 weeks.

Regardless, all the tanks are visually stunning & just seeing a tank like that almost instantly lures countless new people into the hobby.

Octopus designed tanks I don't think I've ever seen before.

Also one piece of information that should always be posted with these types of tank is the SIZE.

I'm always shocked at the smaller nano scaped tanks.

Well Moss if fairly slow grower, and if you do low tech, i wouldn't imagine it would be to much maintenance.. my goal is to do something amazing via the low tech route.

Saw that one elsewhere... love it.

Makes me sad to know that when my first one is done it's going to look like absolutely crap compared to that.

TPT says I'm an algae grower... I'd like to think of myself as one hell of a Cabomba farmer.
