I've had a thread going over on APC for a while now where you can see the set up stages and progression so far, but I thought I would post some pics here for you to see.

The scape is based on the transition between open plains and dense forest with an entrance/path. I've tried to make the planting scheme look as wild as possible when it all fills in, and plants are already growing over each other. The Hydrocotyl gives a nice different look to some areas of the scape too IMO.
I am planning to let the moss cover the parts of wood it's attached to, as well as a light covering over the rocks hopefully. The Mayacca should grow almost to the top of the tank, leaning over, giving the impression of the dense forest look.
Basic Specs are:
Tank: 25l round cornered AquaOne tank
Light: 24w of light via Interpet compact T5 (9 hrs daily)
CO2: JBL Profi 2 CO2 (the solenoid one!) @ 1bps
Filter: Elite Mini internal stuffed with floss
Substrates: ADA Aquasoil Malaya with silver sand at the front
Ferts: ADA Brighty K (1.25ml daily), Brighty Spec Lights (not started yet), and Step1 (not started yet)
Plants: A lot!!
Fish: None yet!!
The tank has been running only 12 days but it's filling really nicely already (especially the glosso!). See what you think, and if you've got any C&C to give then please do!!!
Thanks for looking,
