What a beautiful little aquascape! Plant choice, fish choice, hardscaping, and pruning technique are all excellent. Congratulations!

Carlos Sanchez

Wow! It's hard to believe this is only an 8 gallon tank. You've done an excellent job creating depth, and your plants are well chosen to compliment both each other and the size of the tank. I even like that you have allowed your fish to swim and behave naturally rather than the current and highly artifical fad of "scaring" them into schooling in the center of the tank. If I had a tiny nit to pick, it would be that your R. wallichii has become just a little leggy. If it were trimmed down to just below the surface, and encouraged to be a it fuller, this tank could hold its own in any size category.

Extremly well done . Perfect balance . There is nothing I do not like about this aquascape.
