My natural aquarium-pond

Since I did a lot of reading on the ponds subforum and use a lot of natural principles and like to think of my 15g aquarium as a pond, would like to post a link to my journal here.

Been running this tank for 2 months and am happy with it. The link's in my signature below. My tank photography skills arent good at all. Also the scaping could have been better had I got more info about the plants (especially aponogetons) I have in there while setting up the tank. They are in the foreground and have grown huge, should have been in the back actually.

Since you are calling it a pond, having specific fore,mid and background plants would have made it look like a scaped aquarium. IMO, I think the random placed plants makes the pond look more natural.

Thanks AGUILAR. Its interesting to see your perspective & I appreciate it. I will try pics with my other point & shoot camera. The tank looks much better in person. All the posted pics are from a cell phone.

I think I should cut some of the biggest apon leaves so that the lower plants get more light.
