This is a really well done hardscape. I really like how the sand contrasts with the dark rocks. And the wood is just ridiculously awesome.

Wow that a nice start to a tank! It's gonna look great when it grows out! Just wondering, is that a pic of your crypt in your avatar?

Hope it will turn out. I think I still needs to be planted a little more in some spots though. Yes, it is my crypt.

That front shot is money!

Is there any way to keep sand on the top of the rock on the lef?. Like in the 1st picture. It looks so natural like that. Either way, nicely done. You have me looking a mine for a rescape now haha.

Thanks. I actually was thinking the same with the sand. In fact, I was going to use those holes as natural pots. We'll see what happens.

Lol I have no patience, I would have stuffed every bit of plant I could in there on day 1 and stocked it on day 5.

Beautiful
