* A real beauty & one of my very favorite tanks. Impressive diversity of plants and color. Very good water movement and clarity. Very nicely photographed too. Could perhaps benefit from some bolder hardscape (large rock or driftwood?). A bit ungroomed in these pics, but so striking I wish it was my wallpaper.*

Love the way the red is there but not being shouted at you through a bull horn.
