Bump: What a joy to look at every page in this thread. There are some awesome scapes on here! Look forward to seeing more

My 7.5 cube. Just did a rescape today, still not totally happy with it. I have a shortage of hard scape materials small enough for this tank. The NJF needs to grow in from behind the stone on the left. I might even replace it with something else, haven't decided. Those are a few of my corydorus pygmaeus in the front, there are 7 all together.

90 Gallon 48" x 18" x 24"
This tank has been running for several years and is still going strong. The first year it took a lot of effort on my part to balance it out into a self-sufficient eco-system. It is my favorite tank.
15-25% WC every 3rd week. Add Melafix and Salt at WC. No added ferts or Co2.
* two XP 3 Canister Filters
* one 660 Peguin Powerhead run only at night
* one small airstone run during the day for fish enjoyment They play in it.
* 5 strip LED lights; run 11 hrs total. 2 strips run am & pm; 5 strips run mid-day
* Eco Complete Substrate
* Amazon Swords
* Crypt Species
* Anubias Species
* Hygrophila Species
* Vallisneria Species
* Java Fern
* Random Floating Species
* Brush Algae purposely grown for Siamese Algae Eater
* Other Algae purposely grown for Twig Catfish
* Bogwood used for beauty and to keep pH low and release tannins (was strickly an Angelfish and Diamond Tetra tank until very recently)
* 3 nickle sized juvenile Angelfish (growing out before moved to a different tank with other Angels)
* several 3 week old baby Diamond Tetras (born in this tank; parents have been moved)
* 3 teeny baby Yoyo Loaches
* 1 juvenile Twig Catfish
* 14 Cardinal Tetras
* 2 Kuhli Loaches that I can't catch! Removed the other 8 a few weeks ago.

* 9 adult Neon Dwarf Rainbowfish
* 2 teeny baby Neon Dwarf Rainbowfish
* 1 adult Siamese Algae Eater (poor thing needs friends )
* 2 Glass Catfish (was a single Glass Catfish, but it was so sad, so I got a buddy for him. If I decide to keep them I will get 8 more)

Just thought you should know that the roots of an Amazon Swords can take over a 29g tank.

|robinss||i have very hard water. Will no water changes with top offs only make my water even harder with the evaporation of water/|

this is an update on my 2g jar. It has a top soil/pool sand substrate, a fluval nano filter for circulation, and I recently started dosing very dilute mix of glut/macro/micro. Light is a 65w (equivalent) LED in a clamp lamp. I did have a lot of problems with algae and slow poor growth ... and kept killing my fish/frogs until I added the filter for circulation. That really made a huge difference. This has been left alone mostly to just grow...and it has! It's a jungle in there! I do have the Fluval for water circulation and I am dosing glut and a micro/macro fert mix 1-2 times a week. The glut and ferts are mixed in and very diluted in a spray bottle and I just give it 2-3 short sprays when I dose it. Frog is doing well, too. I do harvest a handful of frogbit and duckweed and also mint from the top about every two weeks.
