Spectacular, sort of a dutch jungle hybrid, it reminds me of the images in the book that got me started way back in the late 1970s...The Complete Aquarium Encyclopedia of Tropical Freshwater Fish by J.D, von Ramshorst.

Indeed a nice planting!
Looks like a cross between dutch and jungle style.
The back-shady places are the most beautiful. Suggests there is something more! But ...what?

Looking healthy, i just hope you know the size that Bala shark is gonna get.
Yeah...there were concerns about "Fergal's" growth potential and plans were in place to re-house him/her at the appropriate juncture. However he/she leapt right out of the tank a few months back now and passed on as a result...

Many thanks one and all for the comments thusfar since posting this thread, I will look to update when possible.
