Haven’t been very active on this forum and this thread is in need of a serious update.
Anyways this scape is done.

Below are pics of the new layout. Currently undergoing some construction to get my tank room ready. it will only house 2 scraped tanks. Both high tech though.

Basically this scape is me getting itchy fingers waiting for all the work to be done.

Still looking for a name. but would like your guys/gals comments/critics







OTTO!!


GMO's

more GMO's

I hesistated to look at your journal because the name made it sound like a big mess of random plants. Boy was I wrong. Very nice job with this! What are those fish? And by GMO, do you mean genetically modified organism?

That is what I thought they were when I first saw the pictures of your tank. Very nice tank by the way.
