    Ja looks like the photographer used a flash. I've seen it a few times in person. Definitely the best tank I've seen!

    This is tank is a real stunner. If you are able to see it in person, well worth the effort.

    This tank is as pleasant and happy as Midasblenny (Robin)

    Well done a great, beautiful and interesting tank

    Thank-you very much for your responses people.
    I do like to keep a system as simple as possible with few gadgets but it still does take quite a bit of time keeping any tank going well, nothing we dont know already:lol:

    Hi Robin - how many Tunze streams do you have in your tank? And what lighting is that? Do you have Metal Halides in the unit?

    Thanks - Jacques
