I think Takahasi Amano would probably have a heart attack looking at your scape.

I happen to think it's very cool that you not only have broken the 'rules' of tank building, you tap danced all over the "Gold Rule" of classic perspective. You have a tank full of points of interest....and it all works!

C'est juste des couches de génie rebelle!

Fantastique!!

AHH MERCI!!!!

Takashi Amano is such an inspiration! But i think he will b rather proud i managed to plant an african cichlid tank lol...

As for the tank built.. this baby got more silion than pamela anderson's rack just to hold it together as there no 90 degrees angle properly done on the whole structure..

I forgot to mention... I bought weeks ago a spotted African river catfish... just one.. to discover they refer to b a few..
So a few days/maybe a week actually.. i go buy a second one to make him a friend...
I mean it was a same looking spotted cuckoo catfish... till i get home n notice they ain't the exact same genus... Now i got two sad catfish hiding at opposite ends of the tank haha..

Are they ever gonna un-depress or socialize with each other?? Cuz.. It looks like the same.. but it aint the same catfish -- FAIL..
