right now kinda digging #3 and/or #4 both give it a better sense of greatness, or perspective, kinda a larger scale...for being in a teenie weenie fish tank.

think i might try mixing 3 and 4 to get a sweet scape...i hope to plant on or around friday, but that might be impossible with out my plants...needing some glosso and i have a small patch of hc growing that i can distribute...i think i'm jsut going to use those plants...keep it simple stupid...

You have some really nice rocks in your tank.

yeah, i think it originally was, but it was tough to keep it up that way, a huge portion of it is under the AS, so its not so easy to move around.

Im really digging this tank. The rock layout is quite dramatic for such a small scale. I am curious to how you decided on using hc and glosso? Can't wait to see some more pics.

hc and glosso are similar, but different enough to create contrast and a wild, natural sort of sense to the tank.
I also added some sort of ludwigia, rotala wallichi, and telanthera, rotala macandra, and soon i'm moving some nasea golden in soon.

Sorry it's been about 1000 years since I posted here but I thought I'd update me some pics .the tank is gone through a couple different stages and I'm sure I have some more pictures somewhere but we'll just start from where I am now. And don't mind the Staghorne Algae that's come and gone a few times , and soon to be gone again because of increased CO2 and some CO2 booster that I'm dosing.
