Looks wonderful, like a mangrove root jungle.

Hope the owner never has to try to catch any fish!

Wow those angels are demonstrating some serious heirarchy it looks like. The other thing that caught my eye was the pleco that stuck himself to the front glass along the left front where the two pieces of driftwood meet near the bottom :)... Thanks for sharing the cool video!! Nice find!!

No I did not enjoy that video with the Angels fighting all the time. When I sit down to watch my aquarium I like to see my fish interacting peacefully.

Huh....Do you keep cichlids? They look like they may be newly added and establishing pecking order still. My angels don't fight like that, but I also have only had tank raised scalare.

Yes I am very experienced and have kept many Angels and many other cichlids thanks.

I don't say you should share my opinion. You are welcome to have a different one. And I am interested in your different opinion and the reasons for it.

I do know what I mean. When they pair off they may behave in this way.

The great Takashi Amano had a similar aquarium and did not enjoy relaxing in front of it for the same reason. For someone of such great standing to publicly admit his failure made me appreciate him more as a human being.

Oh I don't mind hearing other opinions either! I didn't mean to offend thanks. I thought you have kept cichlids, but wasn't sure. Yeah, they do seem to be fighting a lot, but it's a different story with wild caught specimens, especially if they were newly added.

My opinion on fighting? I would expect my wild caught angels to fight more than tank raised. Do I like it? No. But I also don't keep wild fish.

I love biotope tanks way more than nice planted sculptured ones. And this one is a beauty for sure...
