i don't see a lot of tanks with as much driftwood as you have. just wait until your plants fill it in. i really like your lilies.

You need to find a stand that can support the entire tank, with the edges hanging over the table like that you have a very high risk of having a very wet floor.

In the second picture it looks like its actually sticking out the front glass of the tank, but I'm guessing thats another piece of driftwood. I think that angel is going to outgrow that tank.

you're tank is camoflauged, with that driftwood in front of it. i thought about hanging a planter on the back of my tank and letting house plants hang over.

That sounds like a great idea, kinda like what Rain has done.

yeah, that's pretty much where i'm stealing the idea from. i'm probably going to keep my glass canopy, to prevent jumpers from committing suicide.
