Nice Edge! I like how it's going. Any updates?
FlyingHellFish, you might try Anubias in the corners. They tend to do fine without much light... which is what you get in those front corners on an Edge.

Update: Just pics my friend sent me. Going to clean this tank up a bit more next week. His 6 y/o son loves the tank and I'm glad he is able to baby sit my tank for the time being. Pics was taken a day after the move. Had to basically replant everything. Hope my crypts settle in.

did you drain the water?
if you have water sloshing around then that will move your substrate, uprooting plants. i transfer 2 tanks twice a year, and never have any problems. just drain all the water, cover the top with plastic wrap, and put it where you want it.
good luck manicuring.

Transfer day 8/16/12
Update of tank: slow growth with some BBA. No pics at this time. Will re-update in about a month.
Note to self: transfering a tank to another house is a PITA! This tank is now in the care of a good friend of mine to make space at my place for more tanks. Transfer uprooted half of my crypts, all of my hydrocotyle and displaced a few anubias. Re-scaping took a few hours. Need to follow up with manicure procedures for my scape, including defining rock barrier lines. Hopefully, tank settles in quickly for photography and videopgraphy session.

VERY COOL SCAPE!
These are cool tanks, but a lot of cash!!! I wasn't even thinking about trying to scape them threw the little hole!!! I bet it is a PITA!
You did a great job regardless! Crypts are some of my favorites, so I naturally love this tank!!!
Keep up the Crypts!!!

Update: added boraras maculatas, 3 taiwan fire red shrimp. I haven't changed the water since day one. I was thinking the crypts needed stable water. Probably will do a water change soon, but I'm stunned at how clear the water has remained. I've diatomed filtered my tank in the past and this tank rivals that clarity. Very strange to me. Phone pics don't do it justice. Will use my DSLR when I got time.
Starting to see new growth. I'm happy.

i have found that keeping the KH values in my crypt tanks elevated above 4 degrees discourages melt. some species just go into melt mode anyway, but just my 2 cents.
