Very nice Sir! Looks like it could be sat in the ADA gallery in Japan :)
Can't see any "poor photo's" here mate. Think the pictures in my journal would burn your eyes out if you think your photography is bad. :lol:
Looks like pretty low maintenance?
Have you got just an island of Aqua Soil just at the back, behind and under the hardscape?
Excelente Luis como sempre :)
Looking forward to some more photos, tank looks awsome and the equipment there is no words for that, which I could just go out and buy a full ADA setup hehehe ;)
How easy is it to get equipment and plants in the Azores???
