    The layout is so simple but so impressive!
    The wood and few plants gives it a center, but the size of the fishes makes the impact, really great scape!
    The without flash pics is so cool.

    I messed around with this tank 5 hours today including a w/c and filter maintenance and scaping which took the most. I must have shifted things and moved things so many times lol

    Sometimes I love those days when I'm just messing around the tank for hours... then I sit back and everything is the way it's supposed to be.... clears the mind for a while... it must be like gardening for those who like gardening :)

    Cool

    Few things, first I couldn't help myself had to get a few pics in right after I was done. Next I really wanted to keep my Catfish happy in the shaded area and a complex or cave like structure. In the last two pics I am rather happy with the outcome. More pics to come when clear. Big thanks to Nugss i love the plants man :)

    Great looking set up Dude. Love the lay out and the fish are impressive. You must take your life into your own hands when cleaning that tank with those preds in there. I know my O takes runs at me now let alone the other preds with sharp teeth you have LOLOL.

    Still looks really great, kinda liked the first setup better.
    But what feels right for you is the right setup.
    Really like the lighting, gives a really cool feeling.

    Looks incredible! I love both of the layouts. I really love the natural look of the second layout, while the simple and bold statement of the first layout was also great.
