Love it. Way cool 10 gallon. I'm totally jealous, and I'll be watching this thread closely for tips and inspiration. Are you running pressurized Co2?

Lovely lovely tank. It looks much bigger than a 10g.

Patience is the name of the game.

Great job at trimming the stems. I wish that I could do that.

Question: Is your substrate level or did you make steps behind the wood pieces. Great scape man! Looks good as is.

Oh and love your photography man.

Great Job in the use of a 10 gallon tank! I would have guessed bigger if I would not have seen the intake tube. You have done an excellent job creating depth and I love the color.

Thanks. The Aquasoil is raised at the back it’s about 4-5” tall in the back and the slope is held in place by rocks. I will post a pic later which will show the hardscape without plants.

Pinnacle2009, Malay, Glenn and Jnaz , thanks for appreciating it.

Thanks . The substrate is sloped 2” in the front and around 4-5” in the back.
