Wow, pretty drastic change. Still looks good, but will definitely look better once everything has grown back in a bit.

Here's a quick shot of this tank now. Excuse the dirty glass and general messiness of the tank. I recently got things (flow, co2, ferts) back in order and just moved some things around. I am also growing out some rotala nanjenshan on the left side (from a few small stems). I just trimmed the fern way back, so it is just now growing back in. I still need to re-arrange the stones, so they will be more visible, and I need to clean those pipes of some leftover (but luckily dead) algae.

Here's an update for this tank. I ripped out all of the val. nana, as it got all BBA infested when I had a CO2 problem. I replaced it with some didiplis diandra, which is still very short, so you can't even really see it yet. I added a few small pieces of narrow leaf java to the manzanita, and threw in a couple stems of hygro angustifolia that I received as an extra with a plant order (I didn't really have anywhere else to put it yet, so for now it's in here). I have started spot treating the BBA with excel to kill it off before I remove it. My CO2 levels are back in order, so that should take care of it. Sorry about the ugly powerhead in the front. I just added it to increase circulation while I try to get rid of the BBA. As always criticize away!
Some nasty BBA turning purple from excel

I finally did a trim yesterday. Here are a few quick shots. I still have a bit of rearranging to do. Let me know what you think.

|mpodolan||They actually get along very well. I've had them together for a couple years. I do need to trim....badly. It grew out while I was away for 3 weeks. I plan to do that later this week.|

you need trimming.

|mpodolan||Actually, here's a quick photo of the tank right now.|

|mpodolan||Thanks! I've been out of town for a few weeks, so I just set my light timers to 5-6 hours and let it go. It's totally overgrown right now, but I'll post some pics in the next couple days. I'll be doing a big trim sometime this week so I'll probably do some re-arranging, too|

|jaidexl||Looks good, can't wait to see it fill in!|

|mpodolan||Thanks for the input. It's actually all out right now, as I needed to soak it some more. I'll try some different setups once it's ready to go|

I never thought I'd say this- but..
I think you have TOO much wood in that tank. It pulls my eyes in every direction. I think if you removed some of it, it would make it more harmonious. right now it seems a little, I don't know, a little cluttered?

|CmLaracy||narrow leaf is much different imo, and has a great look|

|mpodolan||I decided on the anubias instead of the fern, as I had java fern in here before, and I wanted to try something different.|
