Looks like a nice space for a fish room, looking forward to seeing it progress.

Please add pictures if you have the time as it changes, it always helps inspire others.

Did a little change today, removed the two bottom tanks and shortened the legs a bit. Now there is room for the 400 liter on top. That's where my group of Sturisomatichthys leightoni group will go.

Looking good, keep the updates coming. I like the look of all the wood in the tank, will make some nice hiding places for the fish.

Added a few plants in the foreground.  Slower waters in this part of the tank. Hopefully the grass will spread out. Will add some Valisinera gigantea in the background.

The grass is Lilaeopsis brasiliensis, don't know the popular name for it.

Themperature in the tank is going between 22 and 24 Celsius.

Ph is stabilised at 6.2
Gh is 6
Kh is 3

Feel confident to introduce the fish now.

A friend of me welded up a new rack last friday, beginning to get the feeling how it should be in my fish room.

Size of tanks is 375 litres on top and 325 litres underneath.
