Looks great but I demand a closer full tank shot.

Glad to see I'm not the only one with collectoritis. Nice plant list.

Collectoritis sure is "fun"

I really like your enclosure/stand for your tank.

I will try to get a closer FTS later today. All the FTS I have right now are kind of crappy. I only have certain times of the day that I can take pictures or I end up with horrible reflections in the shot. The collectoritis is something that I'm working on but with so many cool plants and only one tank to put them in it is hard to avoid. Most of the plants listed were bought from Crispino Ramos in a package. I wanted to try a few different plants at once to see what ones I really like and the ones that don't work in my conditions. Here are a few more pictures from a month ago.

Your stand and canopy are amazing is it a piece of furniture or a aquarium stand ? I also like to try a variety of plants and see what works. Good job.

That has to be the single most beautiful piece of aquarium furniture I have EVER, EVER seen. The plants are just the icing on the cake!

Thank you very much. Now if I can get the inside of the tank to look as good as the stand and canopy I will be a happy guy. I looked for a long time before I found a stand that would look like a piece of furniture since it is the first thing someone sees when they walk in my front door. I was about to have a custom made stand built until I came across this one and it just happen to have the exact same finish as the rest of my furniture in my living room. I don't have the cabinet making skills like fellow TPT member northey87 has. His stand and canopy have to be one of the nicest looking I have ever seen and can't wait to see it in when it's all finished.

We actually have a lot of mission type furniture, and I just know that would look great in our living room. Let me give you my address so that you can bring it to me. It really is a fine piece of furniture, regardless if it is custom built or not. Now you have me looking up northey87. I am almost tempted to just shut the computer and go to work early so I don't get more envious.

That is one beautiful stand/canopy. Must be a real pain to take off all the photographs and candles to feed your fish. looking forward to updates!

There is actually 2 doors on the front part of the canopy that open up and I usually reach around the back of the canopy to feed and dose. There is just enough room to get my arm back there.However it can be a pain during weekly w/c but that is the price you have to pay if you want a canopy. The candles and pictures are my wifes doing.

I really love tanks like this. The natural, dense look is my fave.

ua hua,

Are you using any other heat source than the Hydor hyrokable with Hydor hydroset? I have, but haven't yet put into service, the hyrokable with hydroset, and a Hydor ETH for a new tank setup. I'm just wondering if perhaps I don't need the ETH? I've wondered if using both is redundant, and if it might make temperature adjustment more of a challenge, as the hydroset uses a temperature probe in the water column.

Oh, incredibly beautiful setup! My compliments!

Mike
