The pics above is with all the lighting on and the Atomic Inline diffuser running which makes the water seem a bit cloudy. Here are some pics when the PC lights go out and I have just my LED's on and the diffuser is off..

Thanks so much for the wonderful comment.

I just went back thru my whole journal as well and I have to say that I am glad I went with the smaller rocks and moved the one stump. It has made the tank look bigger and so much better. Also, I can't believe that it was over 2 months since I last updated and it took me 4 months to install my drain line, which btw works great!

I will try and snap some pics of the fish room and drain line and also I built a new light hood which works really well.

I also wanted to let people know that the LED's I bought really don't grow the plants very well and that is why I added my 48" CF light back on this tank. I will say though that the LED's cast a beautiful light and the shimmering effect is awesome.

I bought some blue night time LED's from Fosters & Smith last night so should get them installed later this week.

Ya I am with the other guy; the over all layout and follow through of your plan, design, and implementation of it all is just flawless to say the least! I really like the LED's effect on the tank, too bad they don't grow plants well, but they make the whole tank seem more natural in general. I think everything just flows well together feels like a river. I like this setup better than the last, but I believe IMO if you let those vals on the left grow behind and out of the left driftwood, it would help hid the inflow line and keep the natural feeling. but just a thought ha...

It has been quite awhile since my last update but not really a whole lot has changed. I am working slowly at getting my narrow leaf java fern to grow out around the base of my wood and I am going to use christmas moss all along the front of the rocks as I get more of it. I have organized my fish room more and finalized the light hood above my tank. Still a long road ahead until it looks the way I want it to look. Here are some pics...

Couldn't have said it better. Amazing. I really like how you have your drift wood set up.

That is awesome! What a wonderful way to display those thick, chunky fish. How long have you had those rainbows for?

Very beautiful tank! Your fish do look incredible. Your rockwork is so nice and I can't tell you how much I love that dw!

Another member, Meggane I believe is her username, just got an odd shaped tank and she's looking for ideas. She has a lot of height and something like this might be the ticket! You should go talk to her Your scape design could be just what she needs to see to help her in her planning!

BTW, I want your fish room! So organized and well, just awesome!

Thank you. It took me awhile to find the right kind of driftwood I wanted to use.

I had to do some digging on the age of the Rainbows but the best that I can find is since 2007

Thank you....and let me say that it is not luck at all but this wonderful forum and the wealth of information it and the people here contain. I spent hours researching, reading and asking members questions to get where I am at today and I still have so much more to learn. So many people here want others to succeed and if I can be of any help to you, please let me know!

Thanks so much for the wonderful comments!

I have to give thanks to Frank Wazeter with Aqua Design Amano USA for his help with the driftwood. He took time out of his busy schedule to go out into their warehouse and pull out pieces of driftwood, take pics and send them to me. I just gave him an idea of what I was looking for and after many pics, decided on these 4.

I will look her up and see if I can help or point her in the right direction.
