At the river side (25 liters of Ryuboku)

Budapest, Hungary
Hey England, UKAPS hello!

Levine'm from Hungary, an enthusiastic aquascaper. Keymaker highly recommended for this site, and so many viewers, reading. I thought that the nano akváriumomat roamer here to give me an opinion about it. At home I got a pretty good assessment, but I am interested in a truly unbiased public opinion known as well. Heard a lot about your country's famous aquascapers and I hope they will also comment. I'm glad to be here!

hi and welcome :D .
tank looks great.plants really healthy.any chance of some more stats.lighting,ferts,substrate etc.
i love it, the side view holds my attention for longer. both front and side views work well.

maybe, it could work almost as a corner tank?.....

maybe there is room for more plants in the foreground of the front view, but all in all a nice set up :D

peliea looks good
Love it , love it, love it.

Exactly the vibrant style of tank I like :)

Welcome to UKaps

Thank you for the welcome! ;) I will soon write to the parameters of the aquarium, but now I have to go.
Hi Victor and Keymaker here too! :D

A lovely aquascape!

It is visually very striking with a lot of cantrast in the plant texture. It made me stop to explore all the detail - plus you have crystal red shrimp in there too! :D

Hi Levine'm, and welcome to Ukaps :D

This is a lovely looking tank - great colours in there. What is the plant in the picture of the Ember Tetras, I love the shape of the leaves ? Is that pellia ?



Hi Tonser

Thank you for welcome! Yes, the Pellia, or the official name, Monosolenium tenerum. This is one of my favorite plants. ;)
Hello and welcome! This aquascape looks great, there's amazing contrast there and it looks natural as a result, which I always like - nice one. ;)
