Wow, starting over with your foreground? Bummer, it was filling in really nicely.

Get rid of those stems on the right. It ruins the prospective of the mountainous look your scape has.

Still an epic tank. You should seriously consider entering it into a contest, IAPLC is coming around again!

Those rocks are super awesome! Do you have an update of this tank. I love the selection of plants because they are all basically what I am putting in my 40 gallon.

I agree on both points.

Have you considered painting the stray bar to match the background? it might disappear if you did.

yeah it hurt to brake it down. but there was an ongoing algae issue in this tank do to the factthat i was struggling to dial in the lights and ferts. I had the co2 dialed in, but the other 2 factors were causing issue due to the fact that ALL the plants i had in there werent really nutrient hogs. the HC needed HIGH light all the rest, not so much. Blah Blah BLah!

All that is here not there. i got into this hobby some 30 years ago with cichlids. So i am making this tanka river-ISH style to house a group of checkerboard cichlids and a BUNCH of tetras and other cool fish.

here is a sneak peek at the scape. It still needs a few tweeks, but you get the idea. I plan to plant a TON of tall grass cyperus helferi all round the sides and back with bolbitis and ferns thrown in threre.

ill start a new journal here in a few days. I am a week deep into a DSM with a BUNCH of moss all over the place

crappy pic

Chad, what kind of algae did you get that you had to tear it down? HC Cuba's carpet is so hard to maintain once algae gets in. I'm battling it right now with mine.

I'll forgive you for tearing down the last one, but only because this new scape more then makes up for it

Love tall grasses, just have trouble maintaining them, really can't wait to see this planted.
