Looks great - I like it!
Is that fluorite that you're using?
Very nice narrow leaf java fern.
What kind of moss is that in pic #4? It almost looked like a chunk of cladophora to me, but it must be some moss.

Very beautiful! Very healthy Javas and Anubias.
It'll be spectacular when it fills in a little more.

Do you have any plans for ground-cover?

I'm liking your lowlight setup. Looks like everything is growing well. How do you keep algae at bay and how are you dosing this tank?

well i think this tank is doing good when it comes to algae is coz the tank is already well established,im pretty sure it would have been a very diff. story if i started from scratch.i use EI in this set up well kinda,i dose macro after changing the water(40%) weekly K 1/2 tbs ,PO 4ppm ,No3 10ppm and just tryng to maintain this thru. the whole week. and micro 5ml every other day and thats it.getting lucky so far.

Gret looking tank-Itll look even better when it fills in a bit. Love what you've done with the hardscape.

Beautiful. Its simple yet i can't pull myself away. I'd love to see it in person. It has such a natural yet hyper-real sort of feeling to it, as if it could actually occur in some tropical river or lake yet its clean enough to feel like a piece of art.

Much fan of the chaos that is the java fern/val combo.
