Just saw you got your hardscape in, it looks great, very rugged.

The negative space in front right is appealing, I guess it wouldn't hurt to test a couple bits of rock in there though, gotta find what you like.

Thanks blink! Been working on transferring fish and shrimp over today and got some plants in. Working on uploading everything now.

Started putting in some plants today. Transferred some anubias that I had in another tank, a little bit of java moss and some other plant that I don't remember what it's called. I'll update this once I remember what it is.

Here's the first planting session:



Transferred the Albino Bristlenose Plecos:





Transferred as many of the cherry shrimp as I could. Waiting for the remaining ones in their original tank to get bigger so I can catch them better. All of them scattered before I could get a pic of them all but here's a few of them around the tank. There's roughly 100 shrimp in there. Sorry for the poor picture quality. I'll eventually purchase a DSLR for my wife so that I can use it for my fish pics! HAHA







And the second session of planting. I'll most likely replant it a little bit once I get some more rocks for the back right.



Any and all input and guidance is greatly appreciated!

Good looking setup. I have the same tank and stand. It did require a bit of razor action on the silicone, how do your seams look? I suspect that a second double bright will be required at a minimum.

Thanks! Good to see another member with the same setup. My seams aren't too terribly bad but there are definitley some bad areas. I'm planning on most likely selling my double bright and doing a pendant light setup. We'll see though. I'm gonna give it some time first

I agree with blink! Get a journal going! Get the group started blink. It was your idea!

Constructive criticism welcomed!

Thanks! The only area I have in question is the back left. I have a good size piece of Java Fern back there to see how it fills in. All I can do is wait I guess. It sucks being impatient! HAHA

Wow! I am really jealous of this tank. I wish I could do something like that. I think it is because I never seem to focus on a hard scape. Yours looks fantastic!

Thanks! This is the first time I've actually focused on the hardscape myself and am very pleased with the outcome. I'll be re-doing my 90 gallon next. Don't know what I'll do yet though.

Here's a couple of updated pics. Still trying to figure out my DSLR and taking some good pics of the shrimp and plecos. These are from my phone:

Very nice look, filling in well. Take lots and lots of pics with your DSLR and experiment while doing it. That is what I do with mine. Have fun doing it too.

That it is! Once I get the pics cleaned up and some new pics I'll definitely get them posted!
