Here's a little update of the tank about a year later, I have switched out some plants along the way. I only have CRS and Taiwan fire's in there right now

Wow, great transformation. This will look amazing when it grows in. Make sure to keep your foreground carpet (can't tell if it's Glosso or Marsilea minuta) nice and trimmed!

What's going in there fauna-wise?

I like it! The gradient added to the middle going up towards the sides added a LOT to your scape.

This looks AMAZING!! I have a 10 gallon and would love for it to look this good some day. The grading to the center adds SO much to this layout! It would never look that good if everything was flat. Great job!

A good scape takes time, obviously, you took it . The glosso will look great when it fills in, make sure to post some updated pics when it does so.
