Thanks

I bought some purple harlequins for the tank tonight from the green machine (local planted tank shop) last night. They're finding their feet at the moment so I took a quick shot of them late on. At the moment they only properly shoal if the filters are turned off so I'm not sure if the flow upsets them?

anyway, I'm afraid its a large picture but I did a collage from some recent images. Apologies for the large logo. I need to make it smaller on the next collage I do.

stuworrall Thanks all

Did a quick video the other week a few days after it was planted. Im still learning so its very hit and miss plus Ive got an annoying vertical flicker which Ive got to sort out.

inka4041 Seems almost a shame to cover up such gorgeous hardscape. Really stunning tank!

jimsuy Very nice.. Love the hardscape..

stuworrall Just a little update.

The stems are growing at the back. Ive hacked back some of the ferns to get new growth.

Day 1

Today (week 2) - it hasn't changed much :lol:

There's a few subtle differences. The valley is higher and has more stone. There's a bit more fissidens one planted on stones to fill in some gaps. There are some cherry barbs. The hydro has started sprouting and the hair grass is moving and has had several trims.

Ive seen some purple harlequins in TGM this week which I'm going to get next week. They'll hopefully look really good swimming through the arch

I think the left side is pretty busy looking at the moment, it's hard to find a focal point. Maybe that will change as it matures?
thanks prototyp3. Yes the left (and right) are a bit busy in the pics. Since then I've trimmed some of the ferns and they've also drooped down a bit too which is what I'm aiming for. the bobitus at the top is also hanging over more. Once the ferns and anubias kick in ill be trimming them back to display more of the stone in certain places.
