The driftwood pieces look pretty sweet. Hard to tell what plants are in there, but doesn't look terrible. It would be fun to do a project like this...especially if it isn't at my expense.

He is stocking the tank with nano fish (rasbora's, tetras ect). He also purchased a large piece of driftwood to add to the center yesterday. Yeah I wish I could do something like this. The owner has lots of cash to spare so that...helps alot.

Its an awesome tank, but the black things up front (don't know what they are called) are very distracting.

Its actually sealant covered with black plastic trim...yeah not my favorite. In all honesty pictures dont do this tank justice. It looks better in person. Next time im out there I will take a video.

I believe you and im not saying it looks bad, it just has so much more potential without the trimming.


Its kinda like an all blacked out lexus with chrome trimming. Ever seen that? It drives me crazy lol.

A LONG OVERDUE UPDATE:

Last weekend I drove up the mountain to hang with the owner of this beauty. Glad to see it grew in so well. He has recently ordered a ridiculous amount of ada substrate through me. We are getting ready to break it down and go to the max...even more.

to set up and own a tank like that takes some very deep pockets...
there is a store in buffalo new york that has i think either a 2000 or 4000 gallon tank set up...i would love a tank like that...it would hold lots and lots of fishes...mostly small ones.
and a herd of about 50 clown loaches...
