Very nice!

Is that an all ADA tank/substrate? it looks like it ^^

My only comment would be to maybe even out the substrate in the front there? And whats up with the block/stone to the left of the driftwood? is it holding it down temporarily or placed for the scape? I think there could be some better placement for it to make the tank look even more pleasing/open if its there for the scape, altho im not sure which positioning or where would help.. just a thought
Anyways, thats all I got, it really does look good, Keep it up! And post that journal! :P Now I wanna know all about it lol

thanks for the comments, its not ada I just cleaned and polished the glass. And I bought the substrate because it looked like ada, it's fertilized with dupla root k and diy ferts from this site.

Yes the rock is holding the drift wood down. It soaked for months but still floats. The rock will go a soon as it sinks. I was going for a gully look with the substrate but I don't think it worked. I'll level it out when the plants take hold. I really want some glosso and hc or riccia for a carpet but its proving rather hard to find in australia (even though glosso it native in some parts)

I don't think you need to level the substrate, looks more natural that way. And I'm pretty sure I seen your nana petite in S-N-S, seemed pretty and pretty expensive!! Good luck.
