AWESOME, just FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!

You sure are The Fiss King!!! Fiss is one of my favorite plants, but I have never been able to find any locally, and when I ordered some it came from Cali, and priority mail took 4 days to get it to me, and it never recovered from the trip! So one of these days I will get some, but till then I will looks at this thread and DREAM!

GREAT JOB!
Drew

Very nice Chad. I like this quite a bit, a unique and distinct take on an Iwagumi-like style. Thanks for posting.

WOW! You did a Great job on tank! Your tank is how I envisioned mine tank to be... but it didn't happen. I trim my HC every one to two weeks an it's a PITA but only my forearm gets wet! What do you use to trim yours? Scuba gear? lol.

Great job again!

Wow! So green. I still can't believe it's a 125G tank. Must be very awesome to see it in person.

thx BoxxerBoy. Yeah i dumped a ton of money in fiss to get this started, but it will payoff as soon as i can start trimming the fiss-lawn. ROAKs aplenty in the future for sure.

HA! yeah trimming the HC is a pain. I am pretty tall to i can actually trim it standing, but my armpit is resting on the rim of the tank. I have used a small stool to stand on before but i have to bend over on it to see what i am trimming. It does take forever to trimm it all though.

It has been VERY green lately, and i cant figure out why. I have always wanted a 12g long. So i see this tank as a 12g on steroids!

I am bias, but i enjoy looking at everyday! But like all scapers, there is always things in it that i would love to change, move, trim, etc etc. I am battling a tad bit of algae atm, and that really irriates me to no end. I worked so hard to prevent it. Oh well.
