Utterly amazing! Are you going to let those stems in the back grow taller or are they staying the way that they are?

Wow! I like the latest scape. It compliments the way the rocks are positioned.

Love it! Especially the last one. I felt the lines of the stems were too uniform in the first set, but now that you trimmed it, it looks much more interesting.

The density of your plants makes me drool.

Good work with your trimming and aquascape, I can't wait to see this progress!

It's stunning now and will even be more stunning in 10-14 days when the reds stems grow back some. Fantastic job!!

I am a beginner in planted tank keeping and I aspire to keep a tank as beautiful as yours. If you don't mind me asking what are the main background plants?
