Well the 55 is stocked and I will update it soon but,this post is about my 45 gallon which I just rescaped today. I cut the big piece of wood on the left in to three pieces. I will post pics soon. Also I changed some fish and I am getting some silver Angels to replace the one that were in tjere as I want them to look more wild. I wish I still had the large Angel which is my Avatar but it sadly choked on an Oto.

Well, this thread has been going a long time - and it's still quite interesting.
fishboy, it seems you have moved along in the hobby in several different directions, at times, over the past 2 years, in a couple of different tanks, but you always seem to land very nicely on your feet, if I can put it that way, and you seem to succeed in doing it very well.

In any event, we're all interested in you continuing the flow of this thread by your showing us what the latest developments in your tanks are, with pics please.
So update us, as you said you would.

Wow thank you very much. I very much appreciate your comment and I am glad that you enjoy my threads. I promise to get some pics up soon. I do sort of change very quickly due to research, interests among other things. Thanks for you read.

Here are the pictures I promised.

The 55

I have been letting the microsword grow in so it looks empty plus the stem plants I have are not liking the non CO2 as my reg. is broken.









Now the 50 which I just rescaped but I need a little bit more substrate and some more plants to fill in the empty space. Also I need to tilt the piece of wood a bit forward.

Just after filling







Now after the water cleared up and with the fish added.





38 Gallon Tanganyikan









I also have some Sterbai cory fry I am currently raising.

In my opinion, I think the scape is too symmetrical and centered. The driftwood and rocks seem to be pointing in every direction so it doesn't seem natural, and flow in the aquascape doesn't seem to exist. Try to position the driftwood in a certain direction, but not too tilted that it looks unatural. The rocks should be vary in very large to very small. They should also flow with the driftwood and "point" in a direction. Forming them in a circle shape around the driftwood seems unnatural and '"forced".

Do you have any suggestions in mind for the scape? I never felt it looked natural either, but I didn't know what to do.

Well, what is the objective or the look you're looking for? I'm no expert in aquascaping, but I can give another perspective on a scape and I'll try to give constructive criticism. Keep us updated, I'll be happy to give feedback.
