Power sand of sorts....



Kind of skipped over a bunch and went for a mountainish look.



Took a hose through the winder and filled over 4 hours



"planted" Ehh sortof.



the "underworks" Still needs like 5 things put in place.

Sweet! I love mountain scapes. Are you planning on other kinds of plants?

Also, if you seperate the hairgrass blades more finely, they will spread faster.
If it is hairgrass... or my eyes are lying to me...

Thanks. Blyxa is one of a kind in my opinion. Funny thing is I didnt plan this aquascape at all. It wasnt until 10 minutes before i started chucking stuff in my tank i decided on what i wanted and from there it sort of built itself.

That's the best way to aquascape. Just throw it together!
