Wow.

Looks amazing! It looks like a simple layout, but the more you look at it, the deeper it gets! Love the Threadfins...

Very inspirational, indeed!

I love the tank, and especially the rainbows. I am really considering getting these guys, any advice you'd want to share? and its great to know that they're shrimp friendly.
