I really like how the wood pieces branch over middle! It's creates a distinct environment and helps keep the middle from being too bare. Very good aquascaping, a top-notch tank for sure.

Thanks ! Lots of work, re-work and maintenance to get to this final result. Hopefully in a few months my star moss (ordered from Singapore) will cover a bigger surface of the rocks.

Your tank looks very nice and it also looks very clean or algae free.

The fun part is there is no algae growing.. I limit time of light at 8-9 hrs. Regular 5-7 days water changes of 20%.. nothing really magical.

Many people go overboard with plants etc or they don't have enough. This tank is the perfect balance between the two. I like the effect the background gives too.
