thanks everyone! i appreciate all the nice comments.

i will post more pics soon, when it starts to fill in a little more. My trident ferns are having a hard time adjusting to this tank which is a little confusing to me.

thx again everyone


Very nice! I'm still bummed you didn't enter your last scape into IAPLC......
Thanks. Yeah i really wanted to submit it at some point. BUT the BBA ust got so bad that i couldnt take any close ups with out it showing. I just had too much light, and couldnt correct it. It was too far gone.
