Another New Magazine Article


I wrote another new article about planted ripairums and it printed with the current July/August 2013 issue of Amazonas Magazine. The article features the 90-P 120-P riparium setup by Nick Xyong (speedie408). Nick has a journal for this tank right here on TPT. The tank was set up with a nice riparium planting and it also had an excellent underwater scape and livestock.

Here's a quick look at the first page...

Correction bro, 120-p :P

Just wanna express how humbling it is to actually be printed in Amazonas. All thanks to my friend Devin Biggs who made it all happen! Much love!

Now go out and get your Amazonas subscription guys!!

LOL. I keep making that mistake. Thanks Nick. And thanks again for sharing that awesome setup and planting with all of us!

I enjoy my subscription very much. Amazonas is the best English-language aquarium mag out there.

Here's a look inside the article. These pictures show the riparium planting. The underwater scape and livestock in this tank were also top-notch.
