    Hi all

    I was there today... No words for describing such a wonderful masterpiece: perfect scale and proportion, no sign of algae, super healthy plants perfectly trimmed, clean sand. I hardly manage to keep my 25 liters tank in such conditions. Huge design and maintenance effort!

    I post some picture, just for showing that you definitely have to go to Lisbon (wonderful city and people!)

    The Nina Hagen song pops into my mind...."Ich will ein fish sein" (I want to be a fish).....

    It is... Just back from 6 wonderful days there. Don't miss the Estufa Fria (shade with tropical plants), the Botanical Garden, the LX Factory and the Berardez Art Collection. And of course get lost anywhere. It is a great place to go and do nothing special but living there for a few days. Portuguese food is wonderful and people too.

    Don't doubt it. It's a wonderful city to spare a week doing nothing but wandering around.
