Looks awesome!

What's the substrate substrate and what types of rocks are those?

Looking good icepotato89. I can't wait to see how this one turns out. Is this a custom tank stand and canopy? What filtration does it use?

Looking super-clean - also curious about the filtration.

the cabinet and hood are the high end range that my boss Subscape Aquarium makes, we're running 2 ehiem 2228 canisters


water change time again, seeing daily growth on the glosso. stauro is melting a bit but should come back:
