The stone placement is so creative and the plant selection and condition enhance the layout! Very good!
— Dave Chow
Excellent stonework to create caves using shadows to bring another layer of depth to this tank. The plant selection is also perfect to complement the stones.

Excellent work!

Additional Information I wanted to create a cavern system layout with many dark areas, inspired by my travels to tropical destinations. Too bad that the Coyrdoras like the dark areas so much that you rarely see them during the day.
The tank is made to measure. The photos were taken without using flash lights.
