Wow! I love how the plants in the 220 make an arch over the centre "valley". How do you trim and maintain the 220? Do you have extra large tools or do you have to stick half your body in? Subscribed!

WOW!!!

Just FREAKIN' WOW!!!

I LOVE THE 220!!! The Layout, plants, and especially the Altums!!!

The hard scape is PERFECT!!! One of the best on TPT!!! Where did you get your wood at? They are very, very beautiful pieces! Everything is placed very well, and goes together naturally! Even the Flourite looks good here! I am not a big fan of Flourite after using it for many years, but it works nicely. The Taiwan Lily looks great all filled in, but I wouldn't let it get to much bigger, or it will become a distraction.

AGAIN this is a AWESOME TANK! It is my favorite tank here now! I am subscribed 4sure, and I hope it only gets better for you!!!

THANK YOU for sharing it with us! You have done a AWESOME JOB!!!

Thank you for thinking I might be smart enough to purchase long handled tools, but the fact is I am not. The substrate in center back is a looooong reach, to be attempted only with the water level down. I get wet. Once, I am not sure how, my nose got wet.

How do you get any work done? I would watch this tank all day long... the surface cover adds a beautiful touch.

Your altums look really healthy and have grown significantly since you first got them. Not an easy fish to keep alive considering most shipped in are not in the healthiest condition. I would love to see some more pictures of them.

Yea you've totally nailed that precarious balance between looking scaped and looking totally natural. It's very nice, I can just imagine how calming it must be up close in all it's grandeur.

You've already seen the pictures (above), but the latest issue (June 2013) of Angelfish Society newsletter features this tank as its cover story.
