You guys have high expectations for me to get the scape looking right! Hopefully I live up to your expectations.

You are a genius. I should've done this. Now I just need a plant that looks like a bigger version of a carpeting plant.

Reminds me of this one at 3:24 in this ADA video.
Thank you!

Are you sure you didn't read my mind? I actually have this tank bookmarked because I wanted to do something like it with one of my nano's.

More please. Join the club. Wish the bigger rock was just a few inches taller.

Just my humble opinion, however I am eagerly looking forward to what ultimately decide to do with this tank.
I think depth and height wise they're fine, a little space on each side would probably work better. In the future maybe I'll move this scape to a 90p, for now I'll just be a dreaming student.

Thanks! I am too. This is super exciting.

I'm not sure right now... I could be lazy and have the water level lower than the holes, but I should do something. I have a diagram of the plumbing in the post under this.

No worries, I won't tell her. hahah, u evil
Eheim 2217 should be here at 6. Right now I'm figuring out plumbing. Maybe I'll draw a few diagrams of the scapes I have in mind for you guys to look at.
