Looks really nice. Did you wanted the DHG to mix in with the HC?

Not exactly. Nothing I can do at this point though.

Just a bit. The light is a nice blend of white for aesthetics and red/blue for the plants.

Wow. At first I wasn't really liking the rock scape, but you made it work really well for this tank. You really did a good job!

So long over due update. Since my last post, plants have been trimmed a couple of times. Also built a new stand out of Ikea bits as I was tired of looking down at my tank. Don't mind my heater, it's a bit cold in Austin these days.








Normally the CO2 tank would be here, but it was getting refilled.




Easy access to valves and filter's power strip for feeding time.




And the plants:

Looks so lush! Are you having any problems trimming the HC since the hairgrass is also growing in the same area?

Nothing Ventured. Nothing Gained.

No I just trim the hairgrass flush with the tops of the HC. I actually need to do it again.

I really like the wood placement there! (I think I prefer it compared to the rock scape before)

Much more depth than before.
