What size tank is it? Can you run down all your specs (equipment, plant and stock lists, all that jazz)

I do really like the way you've scaped it. I wouldn't even be able to tell at first it is such a small tank if the equipment wasn't in the pic (is that a heater or a hose?)

Right on Drew, looks like a scene out of the woods here. The HM in the background and stems up front is kind of unorthodox but originality is a good thing these days. Needs a trim, looks really nice though.

It's unfair that your first aquascape is so good!
You have serious talent.

tanks looks much better now. i like it a lot. my only suggestion is to hide the bottoms of the stems better, specifically in the areas circled bellow:
