I thought I commented on this tank shortly after you posted, but see here that I must have spaced it out way back then! Anyway, I just want to say that I really like the naturalistic feel of this tank - a little more 'scaped than some others who take the Diane Walstead approach. The rolling hills of substrate are just right; not too little, or too much. Any more recent pics?
