    This setup I wanted to be an easy one to maintain, without demanding yet effective plants and I think I've succeeded.
    I hope you like my tank and I look forward to your suggestions. :)

    Welcome to ASW can you fill in your Country as well please.

    Just looking at that Aquascape it was easy to see you are certainly not a beginner to Aquascaping.

    Then I clicked on your link then I saw all those lovely Aquascapes.

    Hi guys ,
    this is the final photo of this layout , taken in a bit of a rush during the day (you can see some reflections in the bottom :( ) because I had to quickly make room for another tank .So basically I removed only the equipment and took the photo.

    I hope you like it . :)

    Beautiful tank BBogdan! The white background was a good choice for this scape as well it helps to bring out the whole scene and gives it more depth.

    Two concerns I would prefer a soft marine blue backing unless you are intending to take coloured back lighting.

    The the large red rock looks too over powering at the moment or are you going to let the plants grow over it.

    Glad you like it!
    I had no background , it was just the strong bright of two flashes triggered simultaneously . But yes , it seems like is a white background there.

    Thanks. :)

    Keith , I no longer have the tank .
    That was the final pic taken in a rush just before i break it all down...I just wanted to have a pic or two from this layout as a memory.
    Yes that large rock it was supposed to be covered by the growth of the plants but unfortunately I had no time left.

    That is a pity with a little work it could have easily been a far better Aquascape.
