BootyBrown I wish I could grow HC like that. But then again, I'm not running a high tech setup.

talontsiawd Looks amazing, thanks for taking a concluding pic.

rice n curry man Ya that tank was taken down because of college but once the actual semester starts, I might try to do a copy of the original tank.

CPDzeke New owner got it, kinda forgot about it so it was messy, and rescaped it.

Vermino It was a great story and awesome ending. Hope the new owner takes excellent care of that gem.

ad3hybrid This thread is now a history.haha Anyway, I just want to post the final photo of this tank I took before I let it go.


- ADA Mini M
- ADA New Amazonia Powder
- Finnex Ray 2 LED (9W)
- Finnex PX-360 canister filter
- Fluval 88g CO2 at 1-2bps
- Sado-Akadama stones
- Cherry shrimps

- Seachem Flourish Excel 1ml
- Seachem Potassium 1.5ml
- Seachem Iron 0.5ml
- Seachem Flourish 0.5ml
*all above were added for every 2 days, but as mentioned before my dosing schedule was not regular.

As requested, I labelled the photo with numbers for reference of the plants featured in this layout:

1- Hemianthus callitrichoides
2- Lileopsis brasiliensis
3- Hemianthus glomeratus
4- Ludwigia arcuata
5- Mayaca fluvatilis
6- Didiplis diandra
7- Althernanthera reineckii

There is also Crypt parva but cannot be seen in the photo.

Well, this is it. Thank you so much for all the supports given to me to keep this journal up until now. I apologize if this journal is not informative or not updated as much as it should be. I really enjoy keeping the this tank, as much as my passion in this hobby. I will try to create another aquascape when I'm ready to do so. Again, thank you.

hmm i thought you were dosing npk and excel? was that only for the first scape and this scape?

Bodei Really awesome tank. Inspirational.

ad3hybrid Still not much progress for update.The Didiplis diandra at the back grows very very very slow which makes me doubt this plant as D. diandra. Last time I grow D. diandra, they grew really fast and instead of dark red color, the previous one was pinkish red. Maybe the one I have now is Limnophila species.

I think nutrients in the soil has depleted because many of the plants started showing some deficiencies. The HC turned yellow. Some of the microswords leaves died. Probably those were old leaves because if you notice, I never trim the microswords. I hope the next owner will trim them and add some root tabs into the soil.

3 weeks to go...

I do not know whether I'm able to do another layout back in Malaysia. Yes, there are more plants and fish varieties there, and much cheaper too! However, I might get busy with other stuffs, works (or busy looking for one). When I settled down, then maybe I will start aquascaping again.

Don't want to be mean but I hope you split up your tank and then I can capture a small piece of this awesomeness
