    I liked all the tanks but I must say while I did like them all the one that stood out to me was matty's.The way the lighting and the light color plants was what really made me like that tank for which I voted for it.Just now noticing what Toney said in his entry of water being wet.Water itself is not wet,when we touch water we get the feeling of it being wet.Water itself is not wet,wet is just a feeling.
