I like the kind of rampant wild but not too out of control.

Tank is doing great!, shrimp are increasing like crazy and no real algae problems! It's amazing how well a balanced tank does!

Wow, these are great tanks and great pieces. I agree, you should sell some of these, they're amazing.

Well I offered some clay stuff with no interest so...
Here's what they look like finished (not towers but simple starts)
Clay tiles, Clay caves and two clay logs. I'm gonna try attaching moss on them and see how they do.

Beautiful work, very inspiring tank! Wasn't aware of wabikusa either, I'll have to look into that some more.

Those logs look stunning!
