Finally!!! hahaha!

You DA MAN!

So that's how the 90P looks like under all those plants! Awesome!

I really like the Oceanic rimless. For some reason the first pic looks like its a cube tank. This may be my new favorite. Too bad I didn't get to see it in person.

Have you entered any of these in a aquascaping contests? It makes me sick looking at them they are so nice. I wish I could make my tanks look half as good. How much time do you spend on the tanks? Are they time consuming?

If I'm right the layout foreground plant looks like Lileopsis spp. or Echinodorus tenellus. These are great tanks. Keep posting pics.

@wabisabi:Thanks! Hopefully I can find more pics of random scapes that I've done. I am sure there are more.

@sewingalot:Thank you for your kind comment.

@maknwar: Yes I have entered an aquascaping contest before but only once. I try not to spend too much time on them just because when I start tweeking the tank too much, I end up tweeking too much if you know what I mean.lol. I try and tell myself I have only 15 mins to play with the plants and 15 mins to scrub and change the water for each tank. If not, my wife gets mad. Hahaha!

@dewalltheway: It is lilaeopsis noveazeliandae.

@orchidman: Thank you. If I can do scapes, anyone can.

@LB79: Thank you.

I totally LOL'd at this Jojo!

So true, its happening to me with only one planted tank that I actually play with more than just changing water and scrubbing glass. My wife: "You aren't done with that yet?!?!"

Awesome tanks. I remember that 90h as soon as you walk in the door to your shop. Always meant to ask, but what are those green blobs on the driftwood? I know some of your other tanks had them too.
