Update for the 32g ladies and gents

Ok so after a few months or years of not posting I felt like I should give my planted tank family a update with a tank i'm finally satisfied with. I finished planting it about 2 months ago and I forgot to upload the pictures upon starting it up. i have a few mobile pictures I took with phone(not the best quality but i'll try to post them anyway later meanwhile these are the dslr ones). Here is the tank. It's a huge rock I bought at my local fish store called aquatek. Already had a cave structure when i bought it and didn't need modification.The idea was to build a low tech fern,moss, anubias tank with small fish such as cpd's and ember tetris with a few adonis tetras, ottos and Corydoras habrosus. I had went with soil before this present set up but I always enjoyed the tropical look of the sand even tho it's very hard to upkeep. I figured as long as I siphon out the small debris it'll keep looking clean and not want to tear it down so soon, something I tend to do often. Anyways forgive me for some of the pictures as some came out a bit blurry as these fish are hard to photograph. Need to clean up a bit of the trident fern have a bit of bba. So here are the pictures, I hope you guys enjoy!

!shadow! Something about an empty tank that i enjoy seeing. Maybe it's the infinite amounts of possibilities that can happen within.

!shadow! Not sure what to do with this tank,still in the deciding stages of the layout.

!shadow! I tore this tank up lol. Right now it's in the process of making a new scape. I'm sorry I haven't been updating, life and the holidays get in the way . Hope every one has a happy thanksgiving. Ill update a pic of what it looks like now :P

!shadow! Thanks I actually got the tank planted this past saturday. I wanted to let a few days pass before I took pictures so the cloudiness wouldn't affect the quality of the pics. I am extremely happy with the outcome and am looking forward to seeing the growth of the moss and bolbitis in the coming months.I'll post pics in a few hours. stay tuned

IWANNAGOFAST Looks great! jealous of your 60H, i got the 30cm one and I really wish I had more depth.

Hardscape update

Ok so as promised here is a small teaser. The rear i'm undecided on completely sand or soil and just grow tall stem plants like rotala sp green, green cabomba or vals. I pretty much just want something that looks nice and has that nice lush green color that compliments the entire scape. I was thinking dwarf hairgrass or blyxya on the rear. Plants i'm going to use for sure are bolbitis, needle leaf java fern, spiky moss and maybe some fissidens. Anyways here are the pics

update 2/17

Small update. I finally got the tank about two days ago. Had to move a couple of things around including lay the 48g on the floor since I don't trust putting it anywhere else for the risk of cracking it. I did pick up a panorama fixture from my lfs. Supposedly they say it's 40% more intense and judging by the looks of it, It sure does seem that way. I bought me a ecoxotic controller as well to make sure when I work my plants get the needed amount of light without the worry of a extended photoperiod. I did change my plans up as far as the hardscape AGAIN lol. I will take pics of the pre-hardscape on tuesday but in the meantime here are the pics of the controller.
