    Juri you're a master, I love the desing, It's amazing.
    About the fish, what do you think about Trigonostigma Heteromorpha?

    PD: New photos please!

    Regards :Happy:

    Beautiful tank! I'm waiting for the Aquasys products to be sold by GLA - I've seen high res images and they look well made!

    They are reddish and I´m afraid they wont look good in front of those red lava rocks

    I´m finally back in Germany, my private tanks were all overgrown (3 weeks no trimming)
    Will go tomorrow to the LFS

    amazing what can happen when people actually see a tank like this, wish I had years ago. Although, I don't think my wallet could have taken the damage years ago.

    Great progress, and thank you for sharing the journey.

    I think some porkchop rasboras would look nice in there, maybe ember tetras (Hyphessobrycon amandae)? It would contrast well with the green and the blue background. The fish would really pop, I think.

    Super lush tank!

    Those fish look distracting.

    BTW did you change BG to blue?

    Cheers guys :)>-

    Hamza,
    this is because they don´t shoal, once taking some decent pics with my Eos I will make them look good ;)

    Same background from the start, but I will soon try some different

    Stunning, really stunning! I can't wait until you come back to the uk and do one for me!

    But I have to agree the fish don't do it justice. For me a shoal of White cloud minnows or a large shoal of cardinals would have done it far more justice.
