The rock looks like your typical granite you find here in Colorado, I am looking forward to see what you do with it

I ordered some nice pieces of manzanita from Tom Barr that should be here in two weeks so I have some time to tweak things. I feel like the rock needs to have one spot that is a bit more dramatic or more of a focal point...I might go look for one other piece that is a bit bigger than the others...

A couple of last shots before I break down the tank to do a rescape.

Thanks! I spent the better part of my weekend working on it. I used 2 big bags of lava rock placed in poly laundry bags from the dollar store underneath to get the slope. Probably need another bag of substrate to get the back portion deep enough for planting some more stems though. The idea is to get a nice bush of a single species in the back center, with the Aromatica on the left and the crypts to grow in in the back right. I think my hair grass should fill out better this time...

It is too hot to go outside anyway. Do you know which hairgrass you are growing?

I broke the tank down about 5 months ago as we moved into a bigger place...which means bigger tank...
