The Blyxa really makes the tank. And that driftwood is sick. Good job.

I love the empty part under the driftwood. I always love to fill everything with plants but that space just looks good.

Thanks Boxxer,

Unfortunately I havent gotten around to building the stand or the LED fixture. I have everything but I have been really busy to get anything done =(

However, I did use the new aquasoil to cap the old as 2 I had and I LOVE IT! No ammonia spike, no dust, no clouding and Everything is growing beautifully! They actually made it great this time.

Hopefully sometime this month I will be able to get started on those 2 projects.

Thanks again everyone

Plant list is only Rotala Macandra, Blyxa J, HC and a couple of Styrogen Repens.

I currently have 8 Ottos, 3-5 RCS and 3 amanos. I want to get more Amanos, they really are awesome.

I have to constantly trim the R. Macandra, the tips reach out of the water and turn into a ridiculous red, I mean RED. I haven't decided yet on wether or not I am going to put it behind the left side Driftwood. Not sure how it will look though. What do you guys think? The R.macandra is like 4 inches deep. It's kind of too much.

Gorgeous tank, love the driftwood design

I think you should keep it where it is. Maybe find another plant species for behind the left driftwood. Maybe Limnophila aromatica?
