From what I can see in those photos, I like it...

I like the opposing grass effects on the sides you have with an open center... a background would do wonders to the overall effect but it looks like you can view this tank from both sides which is even better for you ! What I would do for a 2 sided tank that I had was to hang a blanket on one side for photos to bring out the tank detail in a photo. Painted cardboard works too but a blanket is easier, you would have to find a refrigeratot box to cover that tank ! LOL

Also try a tripod or setting the camera on something to steady it and it will help get a better photo, those are some blurry photos !

Great looking tank, I would love to see a better quality photo of this monster !

I like it. The open center with the sides filled in is an awesome setup. Well for your setup that is. I would love to have a desk that i could just look through the center and see the other room. Well you get what im saying, i like it.

Blurry photos, but take bucks advice and they should look considerably better.

Whats in your glass box?

I will agree that they are a little blurry, but I do like the effect that the tank creates. Good work. I also think that you need to move the phone to one side or the other or add a few more to balance it in the aqua scape
Just kiddin. Nice

Currently tankless for the first time in 24 years... Getting the itch again

I can only dream of having a tank viewable from both sides. Is it scaped to be viewed from both sides or just one? I would like to see pics from the other side.

thank you very much for the comments. I am very appreciate it. I will try to get a big piece of black blanket to cover the other side. There are some plants still floating on top which i don't have time to arrange it well. I will try to take better pic later. And of coz will take both sides.

The tank acting as a partition to seperate my dining room and living room. So, it is 3 sides view.

Dom,
I like the idea of the multisided tank. I am trying to figure out how to set up my 125, and will probably start building the stand soon. Any comments on the pro's or con's to your setup? Could you post a photo from a little farther back so we can get a feel for the room?

Thanks!

Working on setting up my 75G after a few year break thanks to a house flood.

You've definitely taken on a challenge to create a three-side viewable aquascape and you've done a great job. I really like your innovative use of a telephone in the aquascape, I've never seen that before

The computer allows you to make mistakes faster than any other invention, with the possible exception of handguns and tequila.

Nice aquascape. I reall like an aquascape that you can enjoy from several sides. But I would have prefered a 3 sided view.

What I mean by that is if you arraigned the plants on one end of the tank and have and open area on the other side you can view the aquascape from 3 sides. By having the tall grass on two ends of the tank, even it does look nice it does block the 3rd area of view.

BTW It would be best to remove the angels and place them in a larger tank, at least 50 gal. Looking at the first picture, your fish really have everything they need even a telephone!!! But please update it to a cell. LOL!!!

I'm thinking of setting up something along these lines once I've found a place to stay for a while. Probably stuff it full of guppies

Looks nice - I like the more relaxed natural feel.
