Very nice, Levinen!

Patzu, te mindenhol ott vagy? Azért nem gondoltam, hogy ilyen hamar lebukok! :lol:
Patzu, you're all over there? We did not think he gets caught so quickly!

Köszi amúgy!

That's a stunner! If i was being REALLY picky (because my aquascaping is perfect :)) i'd say that slightly more delicate wood - like Manzi - on the right would look a bit better and really add to the "sizeless" composition - ie without the DC and with more delicate wood you really, really would think this tank was a lot, lot bigger!
It's an absolute stunner though and your pics are bang on the money - love the shrimp close ups!
Nice one!
Matt

My kind of tank, looks great :) congrats

Thank you LondonDragon! I think the moss is the most creative of the plant for aquascaping. I like it! Thanks again! :)

Yeah you can shape mosses in any shape you want, which is great, have a look at this tank if you like mosses: http://www.lfkc.co.uk/index.php?topic=299.0

Very nice job, but I still need a few other plants, to break a little bit of "unanimity". But it's really nice! Thank you for sharing!

But to me this is still the big favorite. The harmony of balance is simply fantastic!

Beautiful Levinen - I love the shape of the spiky moss, was it tied to a rock originally or has it been trimmed that way?

Thanks Tonser

Originally just a flat stone was tied. Scissors cut the moss and so one.

Very nice scape and very well photographed. The only complaint is the drop checker....small but could make all the difference.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you very much Graeme! That dropcheckeer why were there a long story. Unfortunately, it would be too long to explain in English! :lol:
