60P (60x45x45)

This is one of my tanks that I've been working on a long time. It has gone thru a lot. Here are some photos of the beginning set up.

Those rocks on the wood were placed there to keep them down. Those rocks were taken out when the driftwood were fully sunken down.



After planting....

Wow... I love the hardscape! It looks like a forest of driftwood! Subscribing so that I can watch the progress!

Actually this is an older tank so here is a photo of it a month ago.



I actually changed the background plant. I will update with another photo soon.

Very nice! Most dream of having fields of anubias like this. At least I do. The h. pinnatifida seams out of place. I always had trouble scaping with that plant. I would prefer good old r. green or something similar as you had before. Great update on a beautiful tank.

That's a great setup and yeah wow what a great cover of anubias. I would like it even more without the two very vertical pieces of wood and more evenly distribute the moss on the other pieces, but again vice nice!
