  1. Nice Detailshots, Robert!
    I like your lavarocks, because i use lava in my tank, too!

  2. I hate trees into tank. There are so many unused ideas without ones. Why do you always try to use of trees at a scape?

    1. you may hate it but I love it, LOL. I will keep doing it until I satisfy with the result. This scape is my 2nd try makeing tree, my 4th try (3ft - reaching) is much better, not there yet but much better ;). There will be 5th and 6th try coming up next year LOL

      I'm not into biotop scape, so my scape will be terrestrial scape but duplicated under water.

    2. what is a main reason for you to participate at IAPCL and other acuscape contests?

    3. Just for fun I guess, group of friends submit tank picture together. The best rank have to treat all of us LOL. I'm not fish shop owner, I do not benefit from the rank that I accomplished. Most if not all of the competition are free, just a mouse click away, why not?

      Competition aside, I thing most important make something that make your self happy because at the end of the day, you and your family are the one who going to watch the tank.

  3. Hi Robert, its beautiful and is vy well maintained.
