Unusual shape, but I like it. I like the length and the reduce width and height dimensions, it'll be fun to see how this progresses.

Thanks! Good question, I should have put that in the hardware list. That is actually the hanging kit for the Atledtis Pendant light sold at AFA, but it can obviously be used for any light. Right now it's just rigged with some thin wire and a small clamp so I can adust it.

@Ken Keating1
Thanks! Glad you'll be checking in.

Well four months later I finally got around to playing with some hardscape for this setup LOL. Hopefully getting it filled won't take another four. This will have alot of moss, crypts, buce, ferns to fill it up and probably tall hairgrass in the back.

Beauty. I really like the flow of the aquascape. It has a very satisfying scalene triangle shape.

Stunning.

With a hardscape like that, why even put in water?😝

I tweaked this a bit so the wood blends a little better with the rock. Equipment is hooked up so I'm ready to plant and fill.

Here's the first shot planted. Actually first wave of plants. With hardscape focused tanks it's easy to overdue it and lose the hardscape so I took it's pretty lean and I'll have to evaluate from here.

The plants have been in there around 2 1/2 weeks. Mostly ferns, mosses and anubias at this point. There is some Blyxa and a Ranunculus inundatus while I decide which way I want to go. Might also plant groupings of DHG in and around the foreground/midground area. Thanks for looking.
