thanks guys. have to say that the new scape is something to get used to. I am used to trim every second week or so. and now i have no stems and its a breeze to just sit back and watch the scape grow in.

Wow, this lasts scape is growing in so nicely. Could we get a plant list?

Also, have you changed your dosing at all after getting rid of stems?

Awesome work.

Plant list ill update when i back at home, and thanks for all the compliments.

Yes i have changed the dosing but only a little bit. Iv'e reduced it slightly as the stems chowed my ferts. But now with the emersed plants in i can see they also starting to chow ferts. but ill keep an eye out for deficiency.

I built the tank with glass and silicone, made sure there were no bubbles in the silicone, left it to dry for a week and did a watertest for a week. their after i started planting and this tank have been standing since. if this answers your question.
