moved a few things around, added a few more things...


how the tank stands today:


stumbled upon for the first time: the undersides of H. pinnatifida. metallic pink!


not sure on the exact id on this one... best guess is Rotala macrandra, but cant settle on the variant. any guesses?


as always, thanks for taking a look!

That is some really nice scaping. I think if you can fill out the bottom and the nooks and crannies in the rocks it would multiply the height factor.

i agree. but it's all a waiting game from here on out. pretty much can only prune to encourage multinodal growth at this point. thanks for taking a look!

Looks boss as is. How did you manage to plant everything between the rocks?

thanks a lot! well the rocks themselves are actually a wall to hold all the soil in. the plants are just growing in a way where it prevents you from seeing it. as for the plants that are actually growing on the rocks, that happened by accident--seeds were scattered and floated in the tank for a bit, where they settled on the rock and decided to grow. does that answer your question?

thanks! probably not. I wanted the scape to go in a downward slope from the left to right, so adding in more plants in that corner will detract from the effect. that being said, the rotala macrandra that you saw in the recent photo batch has a stem that covers almost the entire back of the tank, so a lot more red will start popping out from the background as the plant grows.
