Did you remove the glosso? I couldn't tell in the last pic you posted.

Amazing tank. I just got my little Fluval Spec V in the mail yesterday and am still deciding on a carpet plant.

First of all, amazing scape.

I do have a question about the green neons...how long have they been in? and are they doing well without any shade or plant cover?

Either way, it looks like it is going to be amazing.
Where did you get those stones, by the way? Did you order them online? I really like the way they look, but I don't remember ever seeing anything like that at my LFS.

wow, amazing .
Could you tell me how you change the setup to low maintenance?
Do you keep the same light as before and just shorten the lighting time to 6hours? Or you have to raising the light higher to reduce its power?
Really want to make my tank like this! Thanks!
