Amazing pt, are you planning to add it on the rocks so that they cascade down like the other tank? If so it will work out okay. I am very interested in what kind of substrate you are using. Tank specs?

Exactly! cascade down is what im looking for.

the substrate is a DIY one. mix of peat, vermiculite and a lillte bit of worm casting.

234W T5, 9W UV, CO2 110X50X60 cm, 100% RO water.
20 PPM nitrate
2 PPM posphate
plantex csm + b micro
iron
all ferts are DIY

Thats it i think

If you can get the moss to look like the tank you posted, that will look amazing. Looks good now but needs some sort of carpet (or moss) up front. I could see HM working well if you trim diligantly as well.

Very nice! I really like the quartz rock.

The rotala looks amazing, but IMO there's too much of a contrast in the size and texture between it and the Hygro in the middle. Do you have access to Sunset Hygro instead? Or something with even small leaves than that... right now the scale isn't right.

And you also need something along the sides.
