Comments: This Planted Tank was featured in Tropical Fish Hobbyist's four part series, "Adventures in Aquascaping." The tank was setup and shot within a 4 month period. Each installment included updated pictures as well as a journal of progress.

The stand was custom made using my own tutorial, "How to Build an ADA Style Aquarium Stand." The light stand was also custom made. A step by step tutorial can be found here, "How to Build an ADA Style Light Stand with Stainless Steel."
