I love the layout! I just got a 2.5 gal tank and haven't decided how to scape it. You've given me some idea. Nicely done! Love it!

Damn thats a tiny tank. I would stick to smaller leaved plants to make the tank appear larger.

This is one of those scapes that looks good, but you can't tell if it's been growing a while or was just setup? Either way good job!

Good luck...

It's been growing for a while but I recently removed a ton of regular anubias nana that was growing on the sand bottom and some bolbitus in the back. I also recently replaced the old sand with new sand and cleaned everything down.

I like the look before and after. I don't know which I would go with.

What shrimp have you got in there? That one looks like an insect, or I'm missing two sets of legs.
