It's been a while since anybody's posted a mineralized topsoil tank, and I dig this one - as is often the case with this approach, it has a nice, naturalistic feel to it: not too heavily 'scaped, but with a good sense of balance to the arrangement. I also like that you're combining tropical (guppies & plants) with North American native (darters & shiners) - would love to see some close-ups!

This tank is one of the many that made me love low tech.
