Sorry, no I dont. My daughter broke my camera hiking last fall and I just got this new camera. I had a few of the driftwood layout on my GFs phone but even those have been deleted. Hence the crappy test photo

WOW!!! That thing is going to fill in NICE... my only critiques are there seems to be a few too many focus points... and the tank doesn't seem to have a TON of depth... but really, all the plants look great though.. Nice selections and planting areas... the crypts are awesome. The wood is top notch... Nice job! Can't wait to see how it comes along!!!!

Yeah, I agree. I want to leave some of the wood plain so you can see the flow. Ive got more stuff tied on now so it looks better. Way to many focal points though. Maybe when the ferns grow out some leaves it will reduce that. As for depth, its just not. Even in person its pretty "in your face." Lol. This scape is STUFFED into a 65g when it would look better in something longer like a 48" 75g or something. The crypts are doing good. Too good. I hope they dont drown out the MM and DHG carpet Now to sit back and stare at it everyday until it fills in

What's the footprint of that tank? Is it 48x12 or 36x18? If it is the 65L, then I know what the deal is... I have a 65L too... flippin impossible to scape... heh...

I'll try to get some close-ups soon. Patience is key with all these super slow growers. I'm hoping June is cool

As for the footprint its a 36"x18". I sure wish it was 48"x 24".

OK, so here it is today without a background. All of the tank equipment is pictured, along with all of the algae This for some reason is a better shot of the fish as well.

I love the chaos of this tank 'scape. Wow nice job.

The meadow with cool rock has been so done lately. I like to see something just so different.
