Wow this is awesome!

A few quick questions tho:
- is that a Fluval Roma?
- How did you modify the lighting?

EDIT
Found the lighting, that's genius!!
I'm guessing you had to change the flappy plastic bits too, what did you do for those?

@ Arana, @Gary Nelson - Thank you very much!:)
@ Porksword - Thank you!:) I don't have external filter. Lighting come from 2 x T5 JBL Solar Natur Ultra and JBL Solar Tropic Ultra (45 w) with JBL reflectors.
@ Dorian - Thank you! Yes, just 2xT5.;)
@ LondonDragon - Thank you, I am honored! There's no secret: CO2, water change, Easy life fertilisers etc. I simply respect the rules for a clean tank.:) I hope you like my UG photo:
