|Trail_Mix||I know this thread is really old, but is this tank still up and running? I'm all for the asymmetrical look, and I wouldn't add much in the way of foreground plants or a carpet if I were you. I think it looks nice like this, maybe a little more C. Parva. It's all about emphasizing beauty in simplicity!|

Okay, time for another update. I've been on a bit if a hiatus lately due to finals, starting summer classes, building a deck and painting our pool, so it's been a busy spring. I finally remembered to bring my camera to work so I could snap a few shots of the tank, which is still slowly chugging along.
The BBA is starting to come under control now that the soil underlayer has stopped bleeding excess nutrients into the water column,but I don't think it'll ever be completely gone until I get a better light.

|legomaniac89||Thanks Chaos! I may try some M. minuta along the back wall on the right side, extending out from the rockwork. That way the scape is extended further out and it looks a bit more full.|

|Chaos_Being||That is indeed a great tank, I love the combo of wood and lace rock coming from the side The rest of the tank does look a bit bare, but it makes what is in there stand out.|

|problemman||Why not do a moss foreground?|

|legomaniac89||I'm still debating on it. I may pick up some Marselia minuta with my next plant order from FAN, but I'm kind of liking the open space (and the gobies like it too )|

|malaybiswas||No plans for ground cover Adam?|

Thanks guys! Maybe I'll give Marselia a try in this tank sometime.
Here's a new FTS from today
I also added a single Red Lizard Catfish and 4 Stiphodon percnopterygionus, or at least that's what they were supposed to be. I'm pretty sure these aren't a Stiphodon, or not a species I'm familiar with anyway. Anyone want to take a guess?

|Aubzilla||You could try MM as a foreground, it'll grow fairly slowly, but it still fills in nicely under low light.|

Great lowtech tank!
Don't need to have high tech to have nice tank.
