Hi José Luis, very impressive first post !!! Can't wait to see the tank with plants, the green will make a great contrast among the yellow decoration, I think it will be stunning. I like the table very much too.

Good Luck.

Why so many votes when he hasn't even planted it yet? I prefer to see where it's going before judging. Anyway, looks like we're off to a real good start. The only thing I'd warn you about is making sure you have enough space for plants. Seems like your hardscaping is tight and close so, I'd be careful to not give plants areas too small to grow in.
