Apologies for the mess in back, as you can see tank sits in the middle of living room so hard to find neat position :crazy:

I like the project and updates so far. I have a doubts about such a strong shapes with flat surfaces but that's up to my personal preferences more :). Can';t wait to see what plants will do with it, should be nice one no matter what. I can only compliment the size of it (I wish I would have more space)

I am planted!

Thanks guys! Yes its hard now but plants and moss will soften it. Planning small leaf buce, anubias and moss crawling on top, ug carpet and some reineckii mini in corner.

Here is version 5, like it most so far so might be final.

Cheers.

Tank should be cycled pretty fast as had one filter running on my other tank. API test result good so added 4 SAE after 2 days and tomorrow might visit SH to bring few more friends.
