I filled it and wiped down the glass with glasses lens cleaner. I also added more details to the sunstrate by making the slopes a little more dramatic. If I had more substrate I would totally had more height to the back left rock. Tell me what you guys think! Also, I'm lovin the flow on the ac30. I hope future shrimp don't mind it

Also for co2 I'm dosing with metricide 14. It should arrive today. Hopefully it works! I was way too messy with the yeast dealio

Same with mine! It seems no one wants to post. We need all the guests to register! I think your scape and slope are pretty sweet.

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

People just like to be nosey I think and browse for ideas lol. I really like what you have done. Those rocks are full of interesting details. I think you've got the position of them spot on. I agree with you about banking up the left corner a little though. Maybe steal some substrate from the front right?

It's probably just transitioning. Don't give up on it. Metricide is working great for my belem hairgrass.

lookin good; too bad you don't have some extra substrate because it would look awesome if you could elevate one of the two rocks and slope down the gravel towards the other.

Good start so far!

Ya the hc is doing great. I'm trying to create a negative space focal point between those two rocks. I think it'll look nicer and more roomy if I remove the rock in the front left corner.

It looks good and will look even better once the plants fill in. I agree with taking the front left rock out.
