Thanks! The bust may make it back in at some point. I was thinking about tucking it in the upper right where its dark in the pic. Theres actually plants and wood back there.

I like hearing feedback either way!

Just had to quote this post from page 1 as 4 years later the slopes have not only held, they are sizable higher! I read this post again just now, not trying to give the poster a hard time- just proud things worked as planned!

The slope on the right is over half the height of the tank!

Thanks! I know many take issue with the man made object but I really liked it.

The main reason Im considering leaving it out is I already did it. One thing about living things, planted tanks included, is they change/evolve.

Right now I agree- I REALLY like the beach area and the contrast it provides. If I put the bust back, I lose that. It seems like a natural evolution to the tank but I do miss it a little too.

This tank won't be torn down unless I move so it will continue to evolve- like all the anubias being moved and dying off. The java moss is taking over the fissidens. The java fern is basically out... etc.

My main issue with the bust is it can't really evolve- it will have to be redone over and over and over. Im not sure I want to stare at rubber bands holding plants on its head again! LOL!

But I do agree, I LOVE THE BEACH! And there is NOTHING cooler than watching the hill stream loaches change color/bleach out from green to whitish tan as they scoot around it like tiny sting rays!!!

I'm letting the tank grow out a bit before I decide what to do.

That's the issue with any plant I grow on his head- it will always have to cycle and start new every few years.

I really like the big beach area for now and the fish really like it- especially my school of 8 panda corys!

whitepapagold Just did a water change so it's a little cloudy


Filling in on the right really well! And moss is starting to cover the rock over the anubias- killer!!!

I can't get professional shots anymore sadly so it's gonna be these for a while...

Subwassertang it is! It reminds me of hammer coral from my old reef tank a little in leaf shape.

It's doing really well!

I'm always amazed at how crappy my cell phone pics come out...
Yep was leaning towards subwassertang as it does grow a LOT faster as u have noted. Very hardy plant and yes is thrown in refugium a lot as irs again hardy and grows fast
