I think the thought is to show some pictures of the success that has been achieved by the prescribed methods. It doesn't have to be a current pic. Surely if you're on the forum for 1+ years or so giving out very specific advise you would have some pictures of your tanks and/or plants.

I was trying to find some pics of your tank. Do you have any posted? You seem to have a lot of experience, and I would enjoy seeing the types/styles of tanks you may keep.

I posted some pics in another thread I thought you saw them?

I've also been rotating pics in my sig.

Don't want to totally hi-jack, but here's a pic of a tank of mine. Not much of a scape, I was just trying to grow healthy plants and then I transformed it into a scape of sorts in the 2nd pic.



Transformed to this - 3 months later



Individual plants from scape

Yeah you are right, I forgot about those.

I have been following the 3' rimless and am looking forward to seeing it planted.

Just did the 1st wave of planting a few days ago. Mostly attaching plants to rock and wood and placing some moss. I'll be putting up some pics in a few days. Thanks for following.

Posting pics wouldn't be relevant or up to date. The last time I posted pics I had a 29 tall and a 10 gallon. I no longer have either of those. The 29 left the house when I got my 40 breeder and I tore down the 10 gallon when there was no longer any fish in it.

Not much has changed. Instead of 5 Bleeding Hearts and 2 Panda Cories I have 2 female Bleeding Hearts and one Panda Cory. Husbandry, cleaning routines, and such are the same for the most part. Just case somebody comments on my lone Panda Cory, I'm not buying more fish. Once these remaining seniors go, my tank will be a plants only. I'm done with the all crazy that goes with keeping fish alive during hurricanes and blizzards while the power is out for days at a time, even with a generator.
