THX guys!

Fishes are growing and staining slowly but certainly - especially peacocks, so I will update the pictures soon.

One of the best tank I've seen!!
How do you clean the fish wastes at the bottom of the tank with all those rocks??

Now it quite easy, total water flow in the tank is 800 gal/h, so all the vaste is suck in the filter. In the future I plan to remove some rocks.

Some new pics. Fishes slowly grow up. I removed some rocks again, hope it looks better and fishes have more space for swimming :-)

Amazing! Wow!

Do you know what kind of rocks those are? I love the darkness and striations in them.

Rocks are called "Nero Ebano", but it is hard to find. Try your local garden equipment store.

Easily a 9.8 tank.

Now you just have to color match the Eheim tubes!
