    Hi folks!

    Long time nothing new from me. So I wanted to show you my nano tank that ranked #4 in the nano category at this years "The Art of the planted Aquarium" in Magdeburg, Germany. I hope you like it.

    Nice scape but I don't see the point of not having any fish

    Amazing tank!




    Pretty sure it's a live event - I'd not stresss my fish with moving to the show & the crazy activity level & noises

    In addition, I believe Germany has restrictions on tank sizes & allowed fish

    Thanks a lot!

    That's the point. The tank was running just for 8 weeks, so I didn't want to put fish in there. For some weeks there have been shrimps in there, but for the Contest you had to get all living animals out of the tank.

    And no... We don't have restrictions like that. I could have put some Altums in there... But who would do something like that??? No one that loves that hobby.
