That looks very nice, quite natural. A good aquascaping for barbs, including the pea-size gravel which is natural and suits a barb habitat. Good work.

This is an old thread so the member might not see this, or be here (?). I see you are a new member [welcome to TFK forum], so I'll point out a feature, the Aquarium Log of each member. If you click the "Aquariums" tab below his name on the left, you will find this tank and it gives the specs.
