ianiwane Not sure anything could taste as good as this one looks. Yup, Tom time to stop buying and wait for things to grow.

Look forward to it growing in more.

Ibn This setup has already been broken down and you guys won't be seeing any further updates. He has since converted it over to a saltwater tank.

24fps this thread should be updated. it was an amazing set-up.
I liked the open space on the right, it gives good contrast to the lush blyxa on the left. If anything, just plant the lotus stems to the right, under wherever the leaves are flowing with the current. leave the middle open, like you said, it looks great and gives the fish room (open water).
I am sure the fish dart in and out between the more open stems on the right, playing in the shade under the leaves.
Looks great, can we have a new year's update?

Color Me Blue Really! Need my fix! Where's the updates Ian! A very beautiful tank

Side note: I had no idea that blyxa japonica grew that tall/huge! Amazing!
