Sorry haven't updated in a while I have been busy, I rescaped the tank a couple weeks ago the last scape didn't turn out very well. So I wanted something with slower growers this what I have so far. I am going to add some narrow leaf java fern to the back and a little more moss here and there.

Hey guppy. Haven't seen you around for a while.

I like the new scape. I like the idea of narrow leaf java fern great plant.

The rocks and the sand have great colors. I would consider a third rock just to keep with the odd numbers rule. Of course if your going to cover it with plants then forget this comment since you probably won't notice the two rocks.

Low light setups make a lot of sense. They are so much easier to manage and can be just a beautiful. Just a slightly limited plant list to chose from.

storm- i got them from AquaForest they are called Yamato rocks its on their website for you living in SJ would be a nice trip to go visit a nice fish store.

That's nice! It's amazing how much effect just one rock can have. I loved your former scapes, too. Beautiful.

Thanks everyone for their comments.

CJ-It was really inconsistent because it was hooked up to a DIY co2 unit. If I could do it all over again I would go pressurized all the way.
