Like the new cube a lot!

Right call on adding plants. It really makes it pop and seem more, well, alive.

Today marks 3-mo since the rescape of the 90P, and it's still continually evolving. Here are some quick picks from after a big pruning session.

In the planning phase of a reboot for the 45S, and will have some cool new equipment coming in soon. More details on that later. For now, pics!

Wow, 5 months since the 90P reboot already! Time is flying! Just did a major trim after letting it grow out way too far.

Before trim:


And after:


I also got bored with the emersed growth 45S concept so I rebooted that, coming along nicely after 2 weeks!


And I added some botanicals to the 30C, really loving the natural looking aesthetics of that, though I'm not getting as much tannins as I expected:


And finally, a quick shot of the reef to round out my full gallery:

Love that top down on the 90P!

I know it's only been 5 months but have you pulled the stems and replanted tops yet? It looks like from the pic that you are trimming tops and leaving bottoms.

All very nice! I like your symmetrical technology. They are all amazing, but the 30C is nice and wild.

Sure have! I typically alternate. Sometimes I pull everything, cutoff bottoms, and replant tops only. Sometimes I cut about half length and replant the tops between the original bottoms. I'm trying to get it to fill in a little thicker so I did the latter this time.

Thanks!! I definitely feel the 30C has more of a natural biotope feel with the botanicals, black-ish-water, kubotai rasbora.

For me the external tank aesthetics are just as important as the aquascape itself. Hence all the symmetry you see
