I think it looks great! Thanks for sharing the pics.
Thanks, Callisto! How are things going with your new tank?
Just read almost this whole thread! Finally convinced to go to Petco to buy the bookshelf aquarium- I've been considering it forever but something has been holding me back (probably the fact that I have 3 tanks going already in my college apartment... moving is going to be quite the ordeal lol). My first planted tank looked a lot like that sad lonely bonsai picture- I'm totally blown away by your sense of scale and eye for detail. You'd never guess your tank is as small as it is by looking at pictures. Amazing!
Thank you for the kind compliments, KatJack. I think it is neat how scale can fool the human eye. Good luck with your bookshelf aquarium. It's a neat little tank. I wish more companies made these dimensions in affordable all-in-one units. If I could change one thing on the dimensions, I wish it were just a tad deeper from front to back (not height). But, with micro fish like boraras, it's like a football field to them.
