Very nice Perrush,
I like how you are fine tuning it...

Love how you have shown how it has evolved! There is a chance for my tank yet!

Not bad, actually, it is gorgeous! Can't wait for my plants to grow in...

|GulfCoastAquarian||What a marvelous work in progress. I can see the aquascape starting to take shape beautifully! Betcha can't wait for that glosso to grow in, eh?|

2 new species and 2 prunings later things devellop in the right direction (I hope )
Only the little one in the left back corner isn't going anywere
Still waiting for glosso, which should cover the entire foreground
any remarks are welcome

@ dledeaux :
I think you mean Hygrophila Corymbosa. In the back is't the natural way, in the front it's 'bonsai' pruned (each time old leaves pruned, new stems cut above first or second node)
@ Momotaro :
It's wasn't ment to be a single plant theme to be honest. I just hadn't more species available for that moment, so had to do with what I had.
But changes are coming up (to the best I hope)
Glosso in front (H. Polysperma rosanervig has to move the the back whare H Corymbosa stands now) , C. Wendtii in place of H Corymbosa 'natural' and maybe Lobelia Cardinalis in front of that (next to the H. Corymbosa 'bonsai')
Hope I get the plants next week. pics will surely follow
@ GCA :
I had to replace the rocks because they ols ones were raising GH and KH. But I kept the island idea. Did arrange the wood a little different
@ All :
I also moved my two lotus to a place where I can leave them longer (eventually they will become to large for this smal aqua, but I love them so)
Covered the CO2 reactor with a piece of black glas.
Covered the back wall with a piece of black wood.

|GulfCoastAquarian||I like the island idea, too. You've pulled it off well, with the rock edging and all. And the Angels seem to prefer the more open areas for simming space so you've got a good balance.|

It has filled in nicely. I must admit, I wasn't too sure about the single plant theme, but you have seemed to pull it off quite well.
Personally, I like the "island" idea. Your plant selection seems suited for it.

|DLeDeaux||Just curious, what is the primary plant you have at the center of the tank? I like how filled out and lush it looks.|

like corey said : " keep us updated " , said so, done so
now a little confused :?: if I should go more towards the "island" idea (like I did now), or that I should leave that and go more to a classic "wall"
and yes, the right hand corner still looks messy. I think I go look for a piece of cork this week

|corey||So far so good keep us posted and updated.|
