neueklare_ein Just got my tank back from my friend. That guy, as I said, isn't that familiar with keeping plants in a tank. But he is absolutely an expert in keeping fish! ALL OF MY LIVESTOCKS SURVIVED! No loss in three months time. That's pretty amazing to me.

My HC though is totally taken over by the glosso that I added right before I left...That was surprising...

Thinking of rescaping the tank.

neueklare_ein Thanks for your compliments and comments!

I doubt if having one plant at the back and the other in front is really a NATURAL placement. It is, however, a conventional Iwagumi placement.
My idea, though, is to have the DHG growing out from around the rocks because they are plants that are less demanding (less light, easier to grow etc.). HC, on the other hand, needs more space, light etc.. That is what I would call natural! :P

It's just my second scape...So any kind of comments are very much welcome!

I dont know maybe its just me, but I would fill the hc all through the front and bit on the right side.. then towards the back i'd place the DHG.. would look a bit more natural then combining and mixing towards the front

neueklare_ein They have already left my house...I really miss them. I thought I hear that noise made by the filters...I will see them again in August...

neueklare_ein These are photos taken before I leave for my long trip. I will transport the whole tank to my friend's house and have in look after everything for a little bit more than two months. He is really experienced in keeping fish (any kind of fish) but not quite in aquascaping...anywayz, just keep fingers crossed.

I always lack the skills of taking nice pictures of my tank. It might look like I am bragging but the tank actually looks really nice. In photos, though, it looks like a mess...

I don't know if anyone of you notice that or not but after sticking with just two plants, HC and DHG, for around four months (am I right?), I added glosso and some staurogyne r....I plan on adding micro sword at the back too.








Photos taken right after the last trimming session before I leave...the DHG will not be trimmed in quite a while.





I really hope that everything survives.
I have never had any major algae problem (touch wood), neither have I ever had any major die offs of livestock.

Wish all my fish, shrimps, and plants good luck. I will see them soon!

neueklare_ein I take that as a compliment! XDD

It really is...look at how big my green neon tetras are in this tank!

neueklare_ein Thanks! God knows how much time I spent on choosing them at my LFS...It took me over an hour...! If I could spend more money on those stones I would have bough a bunch of them home. But I just couldn't...those are Seiryu stones--we all know how awfully expensive they are==

They look lovely though!

neueklare_ein Hmm...thanks for your advice! I will get some potassium soon. That's always insufficient, right?

neueklare_ein Just a little update:
Did a partial rescape; Added a little piece of stone on the right and replaced the huge piece on left corner of the tank with a much smaller stone.
What do you guys think about the changes?

And...umm...does my HC carpet looks fine? I feel like it can be more "lush"...I have CO2 running (of coz) and I dose Excel regularly. There are also some root tabs. Should I add any other supplement for better outcomes?

markusdowny That looks nice!

neueklare_ein hmm...are you talking about the Taiwan Reds?
