thank you xcooperx.

I move the left hand wood to point to the center (it distract and direct the eyes to t he left). Also, tied different moss to all the branches. New pic will be posted.

Only problem so far is that everyday i see HC floating (i had planted them individually and buried almost all of the leaves when i started). Going to wait for a few more days and gather a bigger portion before replanting them. I think it is the cory x 8 of them who dug them up.

You have an excellent eye for this- like a true artist. If I re-scape a tank it only comes out good one in 10 tries- and never as good as yours did.
I love all of yours! Its inspiring, thank you

There is a trend I've been noticing lately. People do not know what the hell to do with the right sides of their tanks, myself included. The left side of the tank ALWAYS looks better than the right? Whats up with that?

Maybe people are focusing more on the "golden triangle", or whatever its called, where the focal point of the tank is just to the left of center. If that is the center of attention while scaping, I can see why the right side can be "neglected" to a degree. I do the same myself.
Question to the Youjin -- Is your tank 24" high? I'm setting up my 90g as well and was looking at the 4 x 54w Teks. Yours is technically 1.6wpg, yet you have great growth and some plants have red highlights. What's your secret?
T-5 more intense that PC, right? Like 50% more?

ianmoede / turbosaurus / ringram - thanks for your comments. It encouraging especially when i am learning from all the comments since this last 2 months were my 1st attempt at "real" scaping (more of a forest look previously and many many plants in one tank). But, had been reading and looking at many aquascapes lately. So, don't be surprised if you come across similar looking tanks.

ringram - the tank is only 18" tall. It is a 36x18x18. I was told that T5 do have better efficiency than CF though.

Keep your comments coming......appreciate all of it !

Merry Christmas !

Looking good. I've been doing a lot of reading (and attempting) at aquascaping lately and my only issue with yours is the red plant on the right side. It's too much of a distraction and the eye wants to move over to that side of the tank, contrary to what the Golden triangle rule states, where it should be just to the left of center. I'd move it over behind those green leafy plants (lobelia cardinalis?) to give it more of a balance. Just my opinion. Other than that, it looks great. Nice growth on everything!

Dr. Nick and ringram - thanks

As for the layout, i thought the idea is to have the red plant on the right side and not on the left and also not on both sides. If the left side is correct, i will move the plant at the next trimming.

Thanks for the suggestion.

by the way, the "forest" do reap its benefit....a baby pencilfish (beckford) somehow managed to survive - i did not even know it exist until it appeared.

It is still small.....my 1st baby fish that survived in there.

Huge progress since the beginning. I agree with Ryan, some balance would really help. Maybe some additional reds towards the rear on the left?
