What a Journal! I started reading it yesterday. Had to put it away and go to bed HaHa! Just finished it this morning. A couple times I started to skipped through the pages, but then I just had to go back!

I love the DW with the "climbing" Anubias petite. Gorgeous! And the moss in the corner looks fab too. That would be my favorite of your tanks. I would be so happy to have stacked tanks so that I could have more than one! I might have to try that route down the road in the chance my husband will go for it!

Happy Fish Keeping

Oh no Amanda! I am sorry for wasting that portion of your life I dont think anyones ever read the whole thing. At least not anyone that wasnt too pissed to comment at the end I do appreciate the kind words. I love the stacked tanks because i live in a small place and it gives me more tanks for the same space. The Anubias tank was actually stumbled upon. I tried to sell all that petite for $100 right before I set it up because it didnt sell. Now im glad I didnt sell it. I really like it too. I cant wait for all of these crypts on the bottom to fill in.

LOL! Not wasted time. I enjoyed myself so it would be time well spent Good then that the Anubias didn't sell! I love Anubias. It is such a hardy group and the fact that they can be tethered to anything is so cool.

Yeah, im liking this alot. Its got my wheels turning and im considering a rescape of the 65g like this. Ive got about twice this amout of petites around and they would fill the 65 pretty nicely. I am considering a Buce carpet for it as well but im wondering if it will be a little too much shade for them in too many spots to still look good.

Yes, ill probably use the same wood but use alot more rock in the bottom and less tall plants in the back. More slope and its probably about due for a substrate change.

Heres a sneak peek at the new 65g hardscape. It will be Lagenandrs, Piptospathes, Crypts, Bucephalandras, and moss.

Thanks. It will get a lot of tweaks over the next month. Ive already straightened the front line and added another piece of wood to the right side. It will take a few weeks to cycle then planting and substrate top up will happen. This picture looks weird because its shot at a downward angle and they rock piles are taller than they appear. The rock is also Black when its wet so it matches the substrate alot better.

Nice start Chad. IMO, the rock piles are to even. I would move some from one side to the other unless that's the look you're going for. Looking forward to your progress.

Thanks Ant. I pushed up the rock pile on the right side to hit the Golden ratio and added two more pieces wood. Patience is hard my friend
