Its comming along fine, but still using power compacts. still waiting on the metal halides I can't decide which ones. The E. tenellus micro has to fill in more. But im not fond of its color. Glosso is spreading but not as compact as I would like it.
I really like the ADA ferts because I have not had any algae issues. I just don't dose too much step I but the brighty K is dosed daily. 50% water changes every 3 days also help. Liliy pipes and external heater are not installed yet. livestock is 66 green neon tetra and seven otto's . Ill post pics today. Once the 120P and the 60P are done, Ill start with my 30C that has been sitting on the floor for months.

That huge rock on the right side in the front may have looked better set behind the rocks coming in from the right. May have projected more depth for the focal point.

I see what you mean. It would add more depth but the rock is one piece, although it narrows in the center. Giving the illusion of two stones. So it is HUGE over two feet in length. If I broke the stone I would take the risk of having it brake the wrong way.
thanks for the input though.

BTW I am not liking the E.Tenellus Micro. It is the same color of the substrate and grows slow. Im thinking of replacing it with D. hairgrass or micro sword.
Any suggestions.

blyxa would be a good choice. Maybe Ill remove the micro and plant some blyxa
on one side and D. Hairgrass on the other then , let them grow a bit and then decide.
