Nice progress! I swear the past few pics I see the reflection of the lights and I think they are some really photoshopped shrimp lol.

I really like the base of the tree, it looks very natural how you did it (where it goes into the gravel)

Thanks, Im going to reposition it a little to get the tips poiinting how I want them. And that silly tree is blocking access to the tank and good FTS pics. Its getting moved after Christmas. There are some shrimp in here but not that bright

I got mine from Tom. I just asked for an assortment of 1"-2" diameter branches that I could screw together and offered $100 and he made a package with more than I expected. Theres no doubt he has a good eye for collecting this stuff and what will look good in the tank.

Nice. I checked your journal and saw them. They look good in there I did a little more planting on this tank but not much. Im still torn on a carpet... Maybe I should just add a little of everything?

Ranunculus Inundatus would look killer in here!

Yes it would but I like something that I dont have to trim since its so hard to reach the bottom of the tank. The last batch I had of that stuff went everywhere

I am tossing around some ideas. I think Lilaeopsis braziliensis for the back 1/2 and pruple starogyne for the sides in front with a Buce center. I really want to keep this tank old school looking although its technically high tech. All of the crypts are old world crypts but they are my favorite ones.
