Tank looks amazing. Any details on the lighting and if you're using ferts? Plants look really nice. I want to get some anubis petite but I don't know where I'd put it.

Most want their plants to fill in to create that controlled jungle look but in your case, removing the bottom growing nanas was a good idea.

Just using the original Finnex Fugeray and adding some micro ferts.

I think this setup with the add'l plants would have been really good if we saw some of the wood in the middle and lower areas, but overall very nice.

Is the bolbitus in there? That's a tough plant to use in a small space. I used it a couple of times in my Mini S (3.5G), but it was tough to make it work.

Pretty much all of them are tied to small lava rocks using string which were stuck into crevices in the driftwood or super glued to the wood.
