hydrophyte I think it looks great just the way you have it. Can you get another new picture from a higher angle?

pianofish Tank looks sick my man,
Only thing you might consider would be raising that right rock a little bit to stick out just a hair more. It looks overcrowded in comparison to it be short. So I guess, larger rock, or put another spacer underneath to poke the rock up a little bit more. If you would go with a different rock, I'd go with a 1-2" taller and a teeney bit more narrow. I could be wrong though. Its hard to tell without looking at the rock in a slightly above picture. Maybe it just looks short because the picture was taken from tank bottom level.

samee Beautiful.

Bonsai is such a beautiful plant. I think if you let them grow and have just 1 or few stems of a red plant behind them, that could spice it up. But thats just what I think Is that HM to the right? It looks ok, maybe a more hedge like or ball pruning might make it look better?

Overall its beautiful, just wanted to voice my crit./opinion.

Update October

Hi Everyone,

The 60P has evolved a bit in the past two months. I changed the hard-scape on the left side for more impact due to the tall growing Ammania Bonsai. I also added some HM Amano, thanks to Zorfox on the right to soften the hard-scape and grade the transition to the Rotala Indica. The DH has grown in great and I'm % 99.99 happy with everything.

Let me know what you think!

Phusis_Eidos Thank you for you're comments! Dry start method is a definite next go around. I am planning however to introduce some hc in spots. I was going to tire some on a lava rock and place them in spots around the treeline to introduce some texture difference. What do you think?

I'm not an HC guru, but if you have your heart set on HC, I would try the dry start method. It's worked well for me. This method gives the tiny roots a chance to spread and establish, and I try to get a good sized clump of it to grow before saturating it with co2 and water.

talontsiawd That looks really good, especially for 2 months or so.
