    Awesome tank, if I had to criticize I'd just say to try to focus your stocking, seems just a little bit of everything vs focusing on schools. The stockings went by pretty fast, but I know I saw 2 sterbai cory and they like larger groups.

    Also, you are losing a ton of water space with the large lift like that, looks great, but I'd try to make it look a tad more realistic, such as having it on one side, built with rocks (looks built with glass)

    But these are all things that "if you really wanted to do anything" type of things

    I think the tank looks great

    Thanks by the words :).
    The different species have to do with fish have inherited three small tanks that I disassembled to mount this. The bottom fish are this number by a disease they caught from a group that I did not quarantine (very stupid on my part).

    The central elevation allows the species have well defined territory and give a different look to the tank.

    I'll try to give a more realistic elevation. thank you :)

    Everybody looks happy and healthy. Lots of broken up site-lines. Love the way the different species are staying together, especialy the Rummy nose showing their schooling behavior. Not much to change.

    I once had to combine three tanks into one and had broken schools that were hard to being up to recommended stocking also; sometimes theres nothing you can do about it.

    Overall; very nice IMO.

    Very nice planting - it's a super, healthy looking scape. I find the video very difficult to judge on your aquascaping - more static photos needed for this.

    I can't speak much for your stock list - five species of cories? Five neons? If you didn't have so many other species in that tank I'd bump up the numbers...but you've already explained why it's such an odd mix. It's pretty heavily stocked. That would be my only concern.

    In that last FTS what's the block in the middle?

    ...I still don't get the big blocky step in the middle. What is it for?

    How many litres is this set-up?
