Comments People often ask me "Isn't hard to look after?". If you keep up with your water changes, no it's not hard to look after. A 20-30% water change is done every fortnight on this tank. You'll have no drama's if you keep up-to-date with it, I hardly ever clean algea, as the "cleaning crew" do it for me!

WOW... Stellar setup... It's definitely not easy making a tank as large as yours so lush and thriving with plants... I could only imagine how much u spent on all the plants, but it's well worth it in the end. it definitely gives you much more to look at. And i like the fact u fought the urge to over populate it with fish..
