    Here's a simple blog I made for a friend to showcase some of his work in the planted tank scene.

    Comments appreciated :)

    I'm not a fan of really dark blog themes, but the graphics on this one are very nice and it's easy to read and navigate.

    Many thanks :)

    As stated previously, this is my first blog design ever, and in fact, its my first site design in 5+ years. I may not be fully up to speed with all the latest trends, but I've enjoyed working on it, and its nice to know others like it too :)

    its really nice. one suggestion i have is to change the image for the archives section. all the rustiness takes away from the whole theme of the design...

    besides that tho great job!

    Hi,

    nice work.. I'd say green is too electric, but getting used to it after few minutes..

    some remarks on pictures: main page header words 'aquarium design' may be too dimmed, can barely see it
    and all them sections header pics you have there -- how did you manage to get them so heavy.. over 120K each!! Just out of curiosity I've changed one to good quality jpeg and it worked out 35K. Think they should be changed.
    overall it's cool.. like the gallery

    Many thanks guys :)

    The header images were actually only a temp thing which kind of expanded to different categories at the request of my friend. I'll rework the file type to get sizes down asap. I also agree some of the images are outside of the overall theme, and this will be addressed with time :)

    Again, many thanks for your feedback, it helps greatly :)

    I like it and think it is very nice. I also usually don't like dark themes, but this one works well.

    Thank you, Linda :)

    I've reworked the file types now. I could compress them further, but until the next update with new photos, I'm happy for the time being.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone :)
