I've been considering a half-moon recently, but I wasn't sure what sort of things I could do with it. But this is absolutely lovely, and an inspiration to boot!

Thank you for the nice compliment. The half moon is def a challenge to scape. But if you do it right it can look fantastic. Tall plants look great in it.

I'm using a dirt substrate with Eco-complete cap. Read through my thread and you can find more info. Good start!
Ahh, I'm still loving your tank. I just looked at this thread again, and I wanted to say that the light that came with the tank is not so bad. Here's my tank with the stock lighting and a bit of supplementing with a desk lamp. I'm surprised it grew in so well.
