    Hi folks!

    Long time nothing new from me. So I wanted to show you my nano tank that ranked #4 in the nano category at this years "The Art of the planted Aquarium" in Magdeburg, Germany. I hope you like it.

    This Photo shows the tank at the Contest.

    And this is the Layout a few days after the start.

    What kind of wood is that? Is that a hollow trunk I'm seeing? Can you please elaborate on the type of wood, how you treated it?

    Congratulations on your ranking


    Absolutely beautiful its very artistic yet has that natural appeal.

    I am guessing the wood its outer bark looks very much like cork.

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Yes, Keith is right. It is cork bark wich I glued with silicone at the sideglas of the tank. I havn't treated it in any special way before.

    I have tied Australian native orchids to it for too many years

    It can be very expensive these days
