Wow just read most of the journal. I think you pulled off the Iwagumi look in your 120H. Its much easier on a normal 120P. I thought I was crazy with having 3 120P's. I always wanted the air pollen diffuser but at $180 it stings a bit. Until now I canot find any better lighting than metal halide, T5 are ok and LED don't even come close. Your full ADA set up is epic.

I don't know about that Marimoball, these days LEDs are very competitive with MH lights (especially at the high end like the EchoTech Radions).

If the stones were nicer quality, this would add a very nice touch to the scape.
This is not any skill issue on you at all, just what you have available.

The front edges can be improved by taking a plastic paint scraper and pulling that edge back, so the slope is steeper ans the front edge is cleaner.
Otherwise, that's the only thing I would change or try out.

Good rocks? Lots of time searching or lots of $ or both.
Finding good rock is the hardest thing in the USA.

These are manteen stones, lots of dollars, I think it's not the quality of the stone this time but rather. I will arrange them differently

Really? They do not look like manteen stones at all.
I've picked through many of those at AFA looking for the right look.
Yes, they are $$ these days also.

I abandoned all hope for those on larger tanks.

Stand is awesome.

Yes that stand is awesome and I'm saving my pennies for one myself Tom. But enough time has elapsed now my dear fplata for us to deserve a major update! It feels like its been 7 years already, wth!?! Looking at your last photo, I think the next time that I would rescape this particular tank, I'd have a much higher slope to the back since you're going without a background, but that's just my personal preference. The Stauro is going to look absolutely sick if you go with that as a foreground.
