Love those stones, and great placement. I think it'll look great with the glosso carpet and the microsword in the transitional areas grown in.

glosso is easy if you have high light and good soil/co2...just let it carpet and vuala...

yes the planeria are mostly gone. one or two more water changes and they'll be history...

Your scape looks very nice! Will look amazing once it fills in completely. How do you like the quality of glasscages tank? I was thinking of getting one but have heard mixed reviews.

cheaply made, but it looks better than a tank with rims.

I'd suggest you ask them if the can do it without the extra support on the bottom... and get starfire glass.

silicone is not so good, but again...i paid like 125 picked up...

great for what i spent... if you have the money, get one from greenleaf, ADA, or other company. mine is also 1/2" glass, so it aint breaking any time soon...

Looks good but the 4 small rock in the foreground don't look too natural to me... still good though.

+1

I think the scape is going to look great, but the spacing of the four rocks in the front are too equal distanced for me. If your feeling very ambitious, I think a break in the simple upward slope might help. It would help break the otherwise horizontal feel of the scape. Just my opinion.

Wow the way you have the rocks is perfect imho... I love how they look like they are breaking out of the landscape... heh kind of reminds me of a stone version of how superman's fortress of solitude formed XD

Nice looking scape!

The only thing I cant help staring at is the flat tops of the stones. Have you thought of maybe adding some fissidens moss maybe? Or will the Rottala sp. grow over the tops?
