right now kinda digging #3 and/or #4 both give it a better sense of greatness, or perspective, kinda a larger scale...for being in a teenie weenie fish tank.

think i might try mixing 3 and 4 to get a sweet scape...i hope to plant on or around friday, but that might be impossible with out my plants...needing some glosso and i have a small patch of hc growing that i can distribute...i think i'm jsut going to use those plants...keep it simple stupid...

You have some really nice rocks in your tank.

ebony wishes she was as cool as ADA stuff...but, she just belongs in another catagory...like...cutest kitties ever...not coolest aquarium products.

okok....this is partially posed, i just put the top half of the box on her, she had been sitting in this little tray for days, but she stayed under that box for a good 10 minutes. good kitty.

yeah, i think it originally was, but it was tough to keep it up that way, a huge portion of it is under the AS, so its not so easy to move around.

Im really digging this tank. The rock layout is quite dramatic for such a small scale. I am curious to how you decided on using hc and glosso? Can't wait to see some more pics.

hc and glosso are similar, but different enough to create contrast and a wild, natural sort of sense to the tank.
I also added some sort of ludwigia, rotala wallichi, and telanthera, rotala macandra, and soon i'm moving some nasea golden in soon.

Sorry it's been about 1000 years since I posted here but I thought I'd update me some pics .the tank is gone through a couple different stages and I'm sure I have some more pictures somewhere but we'll just start from where I am now. And don't mind the Staghorne Algae that's come and gone a few times , and soon to be gone again because of increased CO2 and some CO2 booster that I'm dosing.
