Comments:An aquarium is more than a decoration element. It can come to be a form of art. An art that involves knowledge of several areas. I love planted tanks. I used to have an Asian setup that was really beautiful. Nowadays I have this Amazon one, which I observe for at least half an hour every day. Contratulations on the site. It's excellent and I learn a lot from it.
