That looks really good, especially for 2 months or so.

I'm not an HC guru, but if you have your heart set on HC, I would try the dry start method. It's worked well for me. This method gives the tiny roots a chance to spread and establish, and I try to get a good sized clump of it to grow before saturating it with co2 and water.

Thank you for you're comments! Dry start method is a definite next go around. I am planning however to introduce some hc in spots. I was going to tire some on a lava rock and place them in spots around the treeline to introduce some texture difference. What do you think?

Update October

Hi Everyone,

The 60P has evolved a bit in the past two months. I changed the hard-scape on the left side for more impact due to the tall growing Ammania Bonsai. I also added some HM Amano, thanks to Zorfox on the right to soften the hard-scape and grade the transition to the Rotala Indica. The DH has grown in great and I'm % 99.99 happy with everything.

Let me know what you think!

Beautiful.

Bonsai is such a beautiful plant. I think if you let them grow and have just 1 or few stems of a red plant behind them, that could spice it up. But thats just what I think Is that HM to the right? It looks ok, maybe a more hedge like or ball pruning might make it look better?

Overall its beautiful, just wanted to voice my crit./opinion.

Tank looks sick my man,
Only thing you might consider would be raising that right rock a little bit to stick out just a hair more. It looks overcrowded in comparison to it be short. So I guess, larger rock, or put another spacer underneath to poke the rock up a little bit more. If you would go with a different rock, I'd go with a 1-2" taller and a teeney bit more narrow. I could be wrong though. Its hard to tell without looking at the rock in a slightly above picture. Maybe it just looks short because the picture was taken from tank bottom level.

I think it looks great just the way you have it. Can you get another new picture from a higher angle?
