Nice progress! I swear the past few pics I see the reflection of the lights and I think they are some really photoshopped shrimp lol.

I really like the base of the tree, it looks very natural how you did it (where it goes into the gravel)

I got mine from Tom. I just asked for an assortment of 1"-2" diameter branches that I could screw together and offered $100 and he made a package with more than I expected. Theres no doubt he has a good eye for collecting this stuff and what will look good in the tank.

Are they all ok looking Jerome? I was worried about it for a few dyas. They must be running slow, everyone else just got theirs too.

Yes it would but I like something that I dont have to trim since its so hard to reach the bottom of the tank. The last batch I had of that stuff went everywhere

I am tossing around some ideas. I think Lilaeopsis braziliensis for the back 1/2 and pruple starogyne for the sides in front with a Buce center. I really want to keep this tank old school looking although its technically high tech. All of the crypts are old world crypts but they are my favorite ones.
