Thanks. No updated pictures as I don't have much time but the tank looks quite similar to how it did in the last photos... just a bit more lush.

sewingalot Oh, wow! It really does. I scrolled down too far and only saw "That stone looks like a skull." When I scrolled back up, I actually jumped a little.

Yes, it is SS mesh. I purchased a 24"x12" 70% open sheet from Amazon for $10 shipped. It is woven mesh but it still works very well with most applications (just don't expect to cut 1"x1" squares). I also suggest washing it off before adding any pieces to the tank as I am quite sure they apply a protective lubricant/oil to the SS.

I can't believe I'm saying it either, the blyxa and carpet stage was awesome, but that stone is awesome.

Thanks! Truth be told, I am glad to be done with my 10G as, even though it wasn't much work when it came to maintenance, things just feel simpler.

I really like the looks of it!

It did send one runner along the side of the tank but I snipped it off.

Thanks.

8-5-11:
I tore my 10G down and decided to stick my 7.5G cube in its place. This scape is about two days old. As seen in the pictures, the water is currently slightly hazy but that should pass in a week.

Under the steel mesh is Fissidens fontanus. If it doesn't grow in well then I'll likely just add Anubias nana petite as the carpet plant.

Lighting: the same 18w PC fixture.
Filtration: That JBJ 3G Picotope filter and a Hagen Elite Mini.
Substrate: 3-4 liters of ASII Powder.
Flora: Anubias nana petite, Fissidens fontanus, Frogbit, and Pennywort.
Fauna: RCS, Red Ramshorns, and soon CRS.
