Paladarium

you can see how droopy the plants look when not fully submerged.. they dry up so quickly (within 1.5 hours) but only 10 mins to look decent again once in water.. following shot are strait from the camera i didnt feel like previewing them and choosing.. hope you liike.. any comments will be great :D

I would put that tank on something solid around all of the bottom edges immediately. If you have to remove the water and sand to move it somewhere else do so because carrying it with weight can either crack the glass or break the seal of silicone that allows a tank to hold water.
The way you have it now the tank is susceptible to break. All of the bottom edges need to be laying flat.

Anyways cool background with waterfall.
