Really, really nice. I love how it pulls your eye down and to the "field" of HC. I had the same problem with slope, it disappeared even though it hasn't moved unlike how sand sometime does. For the intake you should get a stainless steel prefilter thing, it would look much better. I really love the new scape.
thanks!! by the way, what is this stainless steel prefilter thing you speak of? I've seen the all metal lily pipes (not for this size tank though)....wait...I think I just found it on the shrimp lab. I need to get one of these.
