A new start..........(some new minor changes on p.3)

I used to live in Toyonaka city, Osaka Japan and was onto aquascaping at the time. There were around 3-4 aquashops within walking distance from my place and all were outstanding with the greatest plant and fish stock you will ever see! left to college attending University of Guam and University of Hawaii....Graduated this past December and moved to Norcal around Jan. and getting back into aquascaping... The tank is about a month old, sorry not the best photographer but here are some pics:

I love the iwagumi rock arrangement - I could spend hours looking at this tank - beautiful!

Great growth for being just a month old too - you have a very good trimming technique.

Really good looking tank the glosso is covering great across the tank. The other plants look nice and lush. The rocks look like mountains with tree's in the background.

Holy hell, what a beautiful tank!

Did you start with a lot of glosso? Or did it just spread like a beast?

Also what do you think about your 105? I ask because I'm hating my 104 and would like to know of any new improvements Fluval has made.

I did not start out with much glosso, maybe about half a sandwhich bag's size or a little less....I have had glosso before and they did not grow as fast as what I have now and I believe its because of the ADA Soil. Heck, all the other plants are taking off also because of the soil!

I had a 104 in the past and I honestly do not see a difference between the two....I noticed a squeeling noise the other night but now its gone....I plan on changing to a filstar or ADA filter very soon....

for only being a month old, the glosso grew like a weed!

Really fantastic growth in comparison with your tank's age. It's amazing your plants grew so much as though they have already been there for several weeks.Very neat and beautiful layout.
