You could try to add another rock close to the base, to the right of the far left rock.
Thanks. I think I will go ahead and move and add more rocks to the base of the manzanita.

Another update. Eheim 2217 is up and running. Jager 150w heater set at 77f, it was at 74f. Figure it be more beneficial to gradually raise the temp. I added more rocks, anubias nana, a bunch of crypts (not exactly sure what kind), and a xlarge Amazon sword. I removed all the val out. I'm thinking of a wisteria wall to cover that empty background space? Or what would you guys do for that empty spot in the back?

I still got more work to go on filling in the front as well. Well add more java moss carpet and narrow leaf sword if I can find more.

Really looking good. The rocks around the base help build a focal point. Your eyes go immediately there and then follow the large branch out to the right.

Looks good! Did you get those Finnex lights? I have a 65 gallon that I am looking to get new lights on and I am wondering how much light they put out.

Thank you. Not yet. Trying to sell my current fixture first. There's a thread on here that gives out the par ratings though.

Just got the finnex ray 2 dual 7k and the monster ray in! The dual 7k on its own looks a bit yellow but with the monster ray it really helps with that and enhancing the colors.

Here it is with both units on.




Here it is with only the dual 7k




With just the monster ray. Colors of the fish really pop out!


These images does no justice!

Really like what the monster ray produces but still really interested in the satellite LED+ but worried about what it will put out. I might just hold on to the monster ray and try out the satellite and see which one I like more.

I really want to add a Monster Ray to my Ray 2! Everybody keeps posting pics! I know they aren't doing it justice, but I can still see a pretty big difference.

The Monster Ray alongside the Ray 2 really make the colors pop! Great job!
