I like the balance. I am guessing that the shadows are not as dark in person. Wish I could have an open top. My Discus love to jump.

What is the plant on the right out of the water?

75g, pair of gold rams , ABN, 1 adult 2 young discus, 2oto's, 6ADF's, 3 anglefish. 96w 6700k-light 6hrs raised, No C02, Excel, EI dry macro's and micro's, Eheim 2126, 18w UV, 2 Nano 270 powerhead. wall of bubbles for more O2 for such a deep tank.

I really like how you hid the mechanics with your plants on the left. It's very nice!

Just keeping on keeping on....

I love this! Looks like a slice taken right out of a river.

Is that a bromeliad on the branch? Awesome idea!

Wow, very unique- I really like it!

You don't have problems with the lighting drying out the emersed plants and the bromeliad?

No, the emersed plants are growing madly - it seems that they are really like their living conditions ;o)

It has to much hardscape in it for my taste. And needs more plants. Never been a fan of white sand either.
I really like the look on the right side. But on the left I think that wood/stump thing needs to be somewhat smaller maybe? Or can you do that and still cover up your filter?
Anyway's don't pay any attention to me the important thing is that you like it. Your the one that has to look at it.

My planted tank. 55 gallon fluorite substrate over soil, 64 watts of light, excel twice a week. Weekly water changes. Angelfish pair, guppies, BN plecos and otos. Redone 11/13/2012
One non planted tanks. 75 gallon.

Way to go. I love it. Could you take a picture with flash so we can see everything in detail if you don't mind? I really like the way you sloped the sand from one side to the other.

Thanks
