Best planted tanks?

I'm looking for some aquascaping inspiration. Please post your links here to the best and most creative planted tank photographs or videos you've ever seen.

This tank is simple but beautiful at the same time.. Note it says its a 55 gallon but looks closer to a 75 or 90 gal IMO.

I don't have a photo account atm, but the "ADAist Hobbit House" is possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen. With the possible exception of the floating island (which, again, I don't have a link to, but I'm sure you can find).

That does seem like an insane amount of light over that tank. I'd love to see a follow up. Maybe he end up with an algae farm.
