Very impressive. Did you go to Amano's school of aquascaping AND photography? Really sharp, clean scapes and great choice of fish to complement the plants!

Re-boot!

Just to play around with you...in the last picture (the really cool shot of the whole tank) it almost looks like a poodle (dog) did a nose dive into a big patch of java ferns. Something about the puff balls of moss at the ends of the driftwood!

That willow moss is really darn neat how you and everyone else seems to be using it. Did you trim it into the shapes? I thought the natural growth was a "drooping" effect.

Re-boot!

Georgiadawgger: Funny!! It really looks like a poodle!!

Certainly, when the moss become to thick, i need to trim. But, I didn't trim the moss into this shapes!! Believe me!! It is growth as natural!!

my favorite pic is the one looking up so you see the ripples on the water, kinda makes ya feel like a fish in there somewhere. Tanks looks great. but the photography is really amazing, great angles on some of those pics.
