At first I thought I had taken my contacts off when I saw the pictures, lol.

But yeah, it looks really nice! I like the driftwood that pokes out the top.

Very nice, I see that you posted on the plantedtank.net as well. I think some java moss or christmas moss would look really nice in there. I heard the shrimps love moss. Are you doing a shrimp only tank or are you going to put your betta in there?
