Hello and welcome to the forum. A wonderful tank, I think that it is one of the best I've seen on here, as near to a perfect layout as you can get, composition and balance is spot on, superb.

Luis really love the scape, how about some close shots of the tank, so we can see it in more detail.

That is really an amazing tank, is it easy to get aquarium stuff over there in the Azores?

Keep up the good work, congrats

Thanks again for all the kind words,
George I never like contests, maybe you don't understand, I respect the other people who like it, but competitions is not for me.
Other reason maybe I never will enter in ADA contest is because I think this contest is made for professionals, and like I said you before I am not one of them so interviews and contests make me nervous because I know I'm not good enough and this hobby for me is for relax from the stressing day.
One day when I feel I am good I will enter in all of this, in that day I will know I have quality to be there.
I hope you understand my point of view.

Thanks again for all the comments here I am truly happy you like my job, for me this is win in this hobby, when people like the work we do!

Regards,

Luís Moniz
