Version 5 is in my signature. Tank has been empty and dry for about a year now.

CmLaracy Newbieplanter- Yup, simply wedged. It would be very difficult to do in a filled tank, I find it only works well in a dry tank prior to filling.

newbieplanter The moss is just wedged between the rocks right? Did u use the substrate ferts that ADA makes, if so which ones did u use?

Hello! Fourth iteration of this tank, decided to go with 3 shades of green and some seiryu stone. Getting a DSLR in a couple of days so bare with me on the pictures, they're all taken from my phone. I hope you like. I'll show a couple set up shots, scroll down for the up to date shots. It's about 40g with a 150w MH pendant

First 3 main stones

Planting the HC and packing the moss in between the stones

Directly after fill

1 Day after fill

Today. Once the DSLR comes in I'll take a shot with the CO2, filter, and powerhead off. The grass is actually a lot taller but the koralia and xp3 are blowing it down to the right.

Some diffuser action

And a happy Sakura! Most of them are far more red but they're all hiding in the grass right now, got them today, 6 out of the 12 are berried.

Angled shot to show the pendant

EDIT: just took a shot with the bubbles and powerhead off for no more than 30 seconds

Thanks for looking!

CmLaracy 13+ hours of labor, its 7am here, and version 5 has just been completed. Took DLSR pics all along the way for you guys, and I finally know how to use the thing properly in manual mode... manual shots consistently come out nicer then auto shots of the same thing.

Thread will go up tomorrow, I need to sleep, getting a little loopy

thanks! so am I. I feel that what I have planned is what I should have done with all the seiryu in the first place. This was my first stone exclusive scape so I was more or less "testing the waters"

CmLaracy Just took the plunge on an AFA order (always hurts, so much money for dirt), so expect version 5 to be out by the end of next week. I've got a cool idea.

Here it is now with the filter and powerhead on after a HUGE green thread algae outbreak (couldn't see in the tank) from me being at school. Cleaned it up in a few hours quite easily actually and it never came back. 80% pure RO/DI water change with an average dose of excel after manually pulling out as much as possible. I apologize for the pictures in advance, they're from my phone and not the Nikon, the Nikon is in Costa Rica at the moment lol.

Here it is with the filter and powerhead off

And here's what I think is this scape at it's prime many many weeks ago (I need to brighten these photos, I know)

Thanks for looking, and thank you to those who followed the scape. Version V should be around in a week or so.
