The tank is in my boys' room. There is some random utricularia stuck in between the bits of anubias that are are PITA to get out (anyone have any suggestions?) The scape is pretty derivatave and wholly unoriginal but it has a certain charm to my eye. The plan was to make as much swimming space as possible so I went with epiphytes to reduce the amount of substrate to a minimum (the TMS is there just for looks). My older son has wanted a african dwarf frog for a while so I am currently looking to get a couple for the tank, hence the importance of swim space.
Picture was taken just after a rescape (tank was sitting on my desk as a growout tank) so its still a bit messy.
