Here we are, my long awaited update lol
The tank is now on "display" status, the scape is stable, except for my starogyn repens (spelling?) for some reason it just seems to be developing holes, melting leaves ect. My Ferts are not a problem, I am dosing enough to keep a high light 60g fed for weeks lol. I just do not know what is going on with it. I need to figure out what I am going to do with my next scape. This one is a year old, but there are some plants that I really want to display that I do not have the opportunity to do well with this scape. The Franz Stoffels sword is one, what a nice plant!!! It is now mid-tank, on the right side, and getting big. I had to move the stellatus to the back. Hopefully by mid feb. early march I will have my hands on a small tree stump to do the original scape I had planned. I have enough rock for it, just need the scape.
Bows are doing excellent. I have not done any breeding with them as of yet. It is in the planning (especially the nigrans) I have a wait until I can, I am expecting my son to be born next weekend, so a focus will be on him until we get the hang of being new parents again.
until then, the tank is on minimal maintenance.
Well, here are the pictures.

I was worried about how the Stellatus would do in the back of the tank, where my light does not reach that well. I have two shop lights on the corners that I re aimed to cover more of the middle, and as you can see, the stellatus responded VERY well.
