I've swapped out the wood for rocks in this tank. The second image is the newer look.

*I adore this impressive eden like tank. Should be winning in competition. Beautifully aquascaped with fabulous contrast in colors and textures of plant leaves. Nice open area in front; with tiers of plants flanking. Terrific water clarity and gentle movement. A handsome "edgeless" tank that is stellar in every way--5 stars!*
