What the style doesn't do is offer a great environment for many types of fish, lots of hiding places with muted light.
No the main focus there is aqua scaping NOT fish by no means. But I find that pretty neat personally to have a "glass garden".

I'd say there's more then just a canopy being a must when you're talking 1-2000g tank like tripple braced steel floors etc

Money HIM pfffttt that guy makes so much money a 1,000g tank to him is like a used 5g to us man....

So is that his home office, or what? I've gotta admit that's even more spartan than I would have guessed for someone with his knack for creating beautiful aquascapes.

As for his money? Well, he has written a lot of books, which probably provides a pretty decent income. I would imagine he makes quite the pretty penny from speaking at conferences.

I know this is an older post, but I have some news.

I don't remember doing it but I must have, because today I got an email from liveaquaria.com saying that my in stock notification request was here, and they now have several arapaima gigas in stock. Only $189.99! (Zebra pleco is more expensive??? I think $200?) So pull out that old 2000 gallon aquarium in your closet and get to work!

RIP fire eel
why did you think it was a good idea to keep going over the top of the tank
when you realized you couldn't breathe outside water?

The legend feeding his fish in that tank

I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free.
Excuse my bad and rusty english but i did not have your luck to be born or to live in a country where the main language is english.
P.S I am not rude, i just hate stupidity and act accordingly.
