oh wow, that was fast! lol

It looks really good, but I wonder if you'd want to nudge the rock to the right a little to allow some more room for the plantings in the back. I think it helps to reduce potential algae issues if they can have more water circulation.

I really do like the plants you chose.

If I do that it would be less room for carpet as I am putting the h. Japan in the front right of rock and letting it get thick along front then sloping to only few nodes abput three inches to right of rock to blend with glosso carpet. I would have needed a 45p to do what I am in a tank half the size. In time and good trimmings I think I will be able to get a good end result and I'm sure many of you guys will appreciate it.

Also a superjet es300 and glass pipes will be replacing the vuppa- it takes alot from the scape imo.

Looking great! Do you have any plans for livestock or is it going to be plants only?

Probably just some neons, there will be a lot of green and red so I think the blue would be a nice contrast

Pics after seven days past startup.
Brighty k -1 pump
Green brighty step 1-1 pump
Co2 - 1.5bps
Lights - 10hrs


I swapped sides on the vuppa so the stems would get more flow.

Nice job planting! I like the new Vuppa location, less obstructive.

Yeah.. I really wish I would've put a second unzan on right and did stems behind also. Then the carpet of glosso and dhg in middle rear. We will see how this grows in.
