A very impressive, very large aquarium with lush plant growth and very healthy South American fish. The aquarium plants are also very well chosen and arranged. Well done!

Absolutely stunning display. Incredibly lush, vibrant growth in a very large, deep tank. Awesome!

Well balanced . The artificial insert works remarkably well . Plant health is superb . Quite a challenge in such a large aquarium.
