I don't have the temperance to plant a tank that's anything less than a jungle, but even a hoarder like me can appreciate how stunning your scape is. Solid work!

That 60F is gorgeous. Imo it should be used for 1-2 ornamental goldfish or something. Something that can be enjoyed most from a top-view like a high quality oranda goldfish.

edit: Oh it's not as wide as I thought. Maybe something smaller lol.

My apologies, the statement was directed toward Jnaz. I figured he wasn't aware of those sizes since i haven't mentioned them when i was watching his original 60f get scaped for the first time. I've seen his room in person and it's so much more impressive that way

I was using an old ADA 17mm outflow glass lily pipe that had the glass nipple for the suction cup broken off on one of my tanks. The glass where the nipple was was pretty thin. Yesterday while twisting the pipe to adjust the direction of flow, it snapped in half. I immediately put my thumb over the top to stop the gushing water. Bad idea. The bottom half had broken into a nice sharp point and my thumb came down right on it hard. Ouch! Blood started gushing and went into the tank and down its sides. At his point I had gushing water and blood to deal with while I reached under and into the stand to turn off the flow. I had a mess to clean up when I was done. I grabbed a towel from the other side of the room and then walked back and threw it on the puddle of water. I left a nice blood trail around the room.

Moral of the story: turn off the filter before adjusting the pipes.

That is awful! A lilly pipe owner's worst nightmare. I've snapped one in half the exact same way! But I had enough length left to fit the hose further up on the pipe, regardless of the jagged edges.

Cleaned my pipes the other day for the first time since then, ran it under hot water before separating the glass from vinyl and it was still nerve wracking.

I am fine. Turned out to be a small but deep cut. Turns out I am a bleeder.

I ripped out the hydrocotyle Japan from the 60P because it was taking over everything very quickly. It was growing into the HC and popping out everywhere. I accidentally uprooted the entire mat of HC in the front while I was taking the H. Japan. I pressed the mat back into place and planted some HC trimmings in the bare spots. It doesn't look so good right now so there will not be an updated picture for a while.

I started on the new 60F. I am going to wait a few days and decide if I like the rock placement before I continue. No matter where I tried the light I had shadows on the substrate. I think that this final location works the best. The light is almost completely hidden and the planted area will not have any shadows.



Which plants do you guys think would look good on the right side behind the rocks? I was thinking crypts.
