Utterly amazing! Are you going to let those stems in the back grow taller or are they staying the way that they are?

Wow! I like the latest scape. It compliments the way the rocks are positioned.

The density of your plants makes me drool.

Good work with your trimming and aquascape, I can't wait to see this progress!

It's stunning now and will even be more stunning in 10-14 days when the reds stems grow back some. Fantastic job!!

Love it! Especially the last one. I felt the lines of the stems were too uniform in the first set, but now that you trimmed it, it looks much more interesting.

I am a beginner in planted tank keeping and I aspire to keep a tank as beautiful as yours. If you don't mind me asking what are the main background plants?
