|dragam21||Just an amazing looking tank! But when I was really looking at the pictures the one piece of rock really stood out to me! Looks like a troll head popping out. Kinda made me laugh.|

|plantman25||Tank looks really good man. If you ever need to get rid of trimmings let me know. I'm in Fremont, where nobody keeps planted tanks. Do you have an update pic?|

New plants and some new crappy pictures. Maybe after it grows in a little I will break out my camera and take some mediocre pictures with it.

I got some didiplis diandra from a local today and thought I would give it another try. I have tried this plant a few times in the past and not had the best of luck with it. I'm hoping maybe this time will be different.
I really think this plant does better with lower temps but I'm not sure. They said they keep it in a tank that has a temp around 74-76. My tank runs around 80-82 so I guess we will see. It's a really nice plant that is used in a lot of Dutch style Aquascapes but don't see too many people that keep it. The first time I had this plant it did good for awhile then the stems started turning black at the bottom and slowly disappeared. Maybe it will do better with Aquasoil substrate not being sharp like the flourite substrate that I used the times before when I tried it.
I will take some more pictures sometime next week after I add the L. sp. red and mini milfoil.

Here's a few more iPad pics from tonight after adding some Rotala wallichii. The water is a little cloudy from planting but it was crystal clear before I started messing. I'm also adding some Ludwigia sp. red and mini milfoil from Tom and replacing the limnophilia on the left side because it just grows so fast. It was sold as Limnophilia giagntea but it grows just like sessiliflora(insanely fast).

|xenxes||I can't believe you tore that whole thing down and restarted it, deserves a new thread. Looking forward to see the new scape fill in.|

about the rocks just leave them there for now. once you want to create more planting space, take some that does not look good here and there. i saw one of amano's scaping video where he just threw a lot of rocks and then pick out the one he don't want

Well I started tearing down the old scape this morning after I dropped the kid off at school and just got done with everything about an hour ago. It's a little cloudy yet and I'm too exhausted to take any pictures tonight. I didn't use all the rocks that I had in earlier pictures to leave more room for planting and overall I like it but will still be making minor tweaks as I go. A couple of the pieces of wood still want to float and that's after a month plus of soaking. I have one more plant coming and then I will just wait for it to grow.
Almost all of the anubias and crypts were left out. I pulled a crypt out that had roots go from one end of the tank to the other and is about the size of a grapefruit. In the process of removing the plant it pulled up the heater cables, which was not that big of a deal because I wanted to add some new Aquasoil anyway so just had to remove the soil from the front 1/3 of the tank. I will try to get some pictures posted in the next couple of days.

Your previous work is great, but this is an incredible hardscape!
Excited to see it planted!
