I've been tempted on occasion to ask my LFS to let me set up a planted display tank using their inventory. Heck they have several other display tanks for saltwater and cichlids. I would think a nice planted tank would be a natural progression!

Ive said it before and I will say it again... Oliver IS the man, bar none...
I have yet to see anyone be able to aquascape a tank with so many different ideas and make just about every one as good as the last.

It is amazing to me when you stop to think about some of the tanks he has created over the years.

His tanks were one of the reasons I started planting tanks. I never tried to copy his style, but they are stunning to look at, doesn’t matter if you have planted tanks or not. The contrast he creates with hardscape and the plants is amazing and the use of only a couple different species make me wonder why we try to stick as many plants as we can into 20gal when all you need are some unique rocks and maybe 3 different plants.
