48l "Peacefull Valley"

Hi It's me again

My old (picture from May) layout in 48l before rescape. This is also "only two species" layout (Rotala and Taiwan moss)

That looks incredible! I cannot believe that thats just 48 liters (I think around 10 gallons). Why on earth did you rescape that? Also, what are the dimensions of that tank?

LOL Wasserpest. I'm definitly taking a serious look at mine.

Simply beautiful Norbert. You obviously have the eye ( wich I'm lacking )for balance with color and layout.

Wow, I've got to tell you that the simplicity of your tanks is fantastic. I think you have a grasp on the hobby and are just working on visually stunning pieces. And finally your photography is excellent. Please keep us posted on your on going projects!

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

Thanks for all comments.

About photography: i do my best with this poor stuff (canon a80), i dream about Canon EOS 350D or Nicon d70 but my wallet isn't so "fat" (maybe it's time to try my luck in lottery LOL).

Now in this tank i'm working on small iwagumi layout project with 1.4WPG but it's not ready to show

My old "big" tank you can see here:

Photography is about much more than the camera.

It starts with a beautiful subject.
An effective backdrop.
Lighting.
Camera angle.

Snapping the picture is the easy part!

Wow I didn't really read what size tank that was and it looked huge to me so when I saw your hand in it I was like "OMG giant hands!!" hehe

All your tanks are gorgeous. I think it's amazing what you've done with just 2 species of plants! So nice and relaxing to look at.

Yes! I snuggle with rats!
