Those are sweet. If the goal is a natural looking scene I think pic 5 is unbeatable.

Holy crap! these things are amazing. The first one looks unreal, like its not even underwater sans the fish "flying in midair". 6 is crazy too

Thanks for sharing those, although I like number 5, I think 6 looks the most like a terrestrial set up.
I wonder why all of the top 20 were from Asia...

Asians are really into aquaria. ADA, the company that sells great aquarium products is also based in Japan.

This is very inspiring! I love the use of a vignette in many of them.
