Another Buddha tank!

Hi all
Like them or hate them the tanks with the buddha theme are certainly one of our most popular designs.This tank is the largest Buddha tank we have done uptill now.Using some tough hardy plants like Needle fern,Java Fern,Annubias and Vals along with a moss carpet the tank hardly requires any care for the plants.The substrate was created using our brown sand along with various grades of mixed gravel.We have topped them off with some small size river stones.A bunch of live bearers along with some cleaning crew round off the livestock.
