Beautiful photography as well as a beautiful tank. The first pic looks like an aquascaping winning tank picture!

It's OK...

By OK I mean one of the coolest things I've ever seen

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

It's hard to believe it's only 15l tank! The scape and the selection of plants just ideal.

I said, " Holy Crap " out loud..... incredible.

To me, maintaining a sense of scale is as important, or MORE important than the scape its self. You have truly captured a sense of scale here. It looks MUCH larger than it actually is.


Bravo sir, truly inspiring.
