First topic message reminder :



This aquatic habitat attempts to recreate a section of a small clearwater stream in the upper Rio Orinoco river system.

The tank is 75 US gallons and the main filter is an Emperor 400 HOB, hung on the end to create a natural, directional current.

Natural materials, as shown in the above photo, and natural light are features of this tank.

Yes, it's some kind of Philodendron, not sure which one.  

Thanks, guys, for the kind words!

That's a really neat background effect. I was wondering what that was. Great idea!
