it really is an amazing looking tank though... i'd love to see something simple like anubias attached around the base of the wood for some green
Ah, scapegoat I totally agree. With a tank this large, I can see some great use of Anubias, Trident or regular Needle Leaf Java, plus some Boblitus. Just those alone would do justice to that magnificent driftwood! But as it is, the tanks is still gorgeous and I'm disgustingly jealous, lol. That said, I have to admit that while I'm not much of a sand person, I really like the look of the sand here. So rarely does one see it done well and here is a great example of that, IMHO.

Thanks!

It needed to be done within budget and sand was the only thing around.

The discus are finally swimming around! And they are eating dried foods now as well.

Nice tank! And you get paid to work on it! I think that tank would pop if there was some green in there.

I kinda like the bleek look. It really lets the Discus stand out and lets them be the center of attention. Absolutely gorgeous.
