    You have a good mix of colours, shapes and textures in very nice relaxing tank.

    Thanks!
    No, the Betta I gave away.
    He was always hidden behind the ferns and to fat (chrimps) to swim. Not good for him and not interesting for me.
    I bought 3 apistogammas instead.

    Strange he was hiding as they usually like sheltered open spaces

    Over the years I had three and every one was a jumper.

    There is something about that tank that stands out it could be the careful selection of plants and where they are positioned.

    Thanks. I try to find my own way in planting and are inspired by meddow planting and Piet Oudolf.
    Still there are to many different plants in the tank but once I take them out I have no extra tank to keep them...

    Bart I can see what you are referring to, particularly the domed shaping.

    A very interesting theme to be inspired by.
