Love the Hobbit house! The Fissiden Fontanus Tree is outstanding also!

That Serrasalmus Rhombeus is really beautiful!

Great tank. Enjoy the theme and the execution. Why remove the Co2? Trying to slow growth for less maintenance?

Mustafa, amazing tank. Did you breed some sort of obscure shrimp or snail? I swear I recognize your name from something. Maybe some sort of breeding article I read a while ago.
