your tank is great and hope the updates continue. +10 on the better camera idea, lol!

whitepapagold Thanks all! Hopefully I can get my photographer buddy to snap some updates.

Yeah, the tank definitely needed some trimming, and Im phasing out a bunch of Fissidens (The top left is now java moss is the last pic).

It was fun to see some of the comments posted when people first saw the slopes and thought they wouldn't last... That was 2010. Now the one on the right goes 1/2 way up the tank! I do have to add some sand from the bottom, to the top of the slopes, every few months but not more than an inch or so. And over time, the hills naturally grow by forming sediment layers and you gain permanent height.

The addition of the chiller and setting it to 77 has definitely helped stabilize the tank!

I hear iPhones actually have really great cameras. I have a Canon S95 and I remember them comparing the iPhone to it which at the time was a $400 High-end Point and Shoot camera.

burr740 Really fantastic. Got me thinking about re-doing the whole scape in my 75.

Phil Edwards I was just talking about this tank last night on Pet World Radio, that's funny. As much as I liked the overgrown mess it was, it sounds like the trim and a good cleaning will do good things.

Removed the plants from in front of the bust to open up the sandy area. Built up the right side slope.

Still deciding what to do about the base of the bust.

Tons of BBA from a long period of neglect... DOH!
