Thank you guys! I'm moving in September so its going to go through a big rescape at that point. Looking forward to it. I'm currently trying to sell my reef tank, which sucks to have to do.

What's the reason for selling the reef? Upkeep and maintenance?

No, planted is by far way more work. I don't do anything to the reef but clean the glass and top it off once every week or two weeks. I'm moving about 15hrs and just be a lot of work to take it. Also won't have room for the big stand, so have to pick one tank to take and planted made the cut. I'll get back into sw when I buy a house down the road

So, changed a few things around again. Still don't feel like doing a full rescape yet... Replanting is a pain, so had to make due with the space I could easily create. Here's some pics.

I definitely like the renewed look with the added driftwood. Adds a different feel to the tank. Might just be me though, but I think you should remove the limnophila aromatica (I think that's the plant?) above the large piece of seiryu stone. It seems to take away from the driftwood. Might just be me though.

Yeah, I thought about just tossing it out. The thing is I am "re-scaping" without moving plants, so its far from where I would put things from a fresh start. Ill break down one day and do it, there are too many things in the wrong place for me right now. But oh well, just gotta find the desire lol

Well, got bored and did some things... Of course I didn't give myself and time to ponder hardscape as usual lol... So I went with the first position I had the rocks in. Wish I would have done it a little different but oh well. There's always next time, haha. Going to start dosing heavy again so the stems should come back strong. Might like it better once they grow in, especially the limno aromatica on the left and the Ruben.

Welp... Long move ahead, tank is currently sitting empty of life. The reef rank is still up and running and I will be taking it to Florida with me and not the FW. Traded in all my plants, shrimp colony and a couple light fixtures for coral. Waiting to take a guy my canister filter when we both get off work this weekend so his tank doesnt have to go through much of a cycle.

I'll def be back in the hi-tech planted game in the future... just have to get someone and settled in more. Too much work at the moment.
