I siliconed them in so im going to leave it. I could take them out since im in the process of DSM but i figured the Tropica049 will hide the plexiglass anyway. I have a bad habit of moving things around so im thinking the plexiglass will be a good deterrent !

So 2-3 months later this is what i have so far. Although its not exactly how i want it, its going to have to do for now ! The Dutch style planting is the hardest part since i cant get them to bunch nicely together. At this stage im basically letting my plants grow so when it comes to trimming them, i can double up on the planting since i didnt buy enough plants to start with and hopefully make them more compact. Anyway, enough talking here are some pics.....


The plants look a lot brighter and healthier in person, my photography skills can be blamed for whats below :-)

I really like the ideas of how the substrate was divided! I am getting ready to tear down my 70 bowfront, scrub it out and start over! I hope you don't mind but I think I may steal your plexiglas usage to make islands of plants. Very good job!

Great looking tank! I like the mash-up style you are using. Post some more pics soon. I look forward to seeing the progression.

Your multiple substrate idea to separate the tanks into parts was brilliant, looks awesome!

I think the only change I would make, if I tried to mimic this, is that I'd try and find a wood piece with a branch long enough to arc over to the right side island. Then moss the whole branch to make it look kinda like the plant life crept over the wood and into the new spot.

TPT says I'm an algae grower... I'd like to think of myself as one hell of a Cabomba farmer.

The plane tickets to Georgia get expensive, but in moments like this I think they're worth it.
