Here is a single shot of my 65 Gal. planted tank.
Not much of a scape, it´s just -- a lot af plants--
I got a few ideas for a new scape, but none ready to realize.
Undoubtedly I´ll replace some of the stemplants with more slowgrowing.

PH-controlled CO2 , Eheim 2028 pro 2

Plants:
Rotala macrandra, Rotala rotundifolia, Eleocharis ''parvula'', Eleocharis acicularis, Didiplis diandra, Blyxa japonica, Pogostemon stellata, Hygrophila balsamica, Taxiphyllum barbieri. Limnophila aromatica, Cryptocoryne beckettii ''petchii''.

Fish: (temporarily hiding)
2 Otocinclus affinis,6 Crossocheilus siamensis samt 35 Hemigrammus bleheri

Wow. very nice. Good growth on the r. macandra, blyxa, hairgrass...everything, actually. If you're looking for improvements, my advise would be to eliminate the hairgrass down to a few sprigs (maybe) - it's just too big and overpowering. Let that carpet plant spread from the right side to the middle area as well. Is that dwarf hairgrass? I can't quite tell.

Looks like you are growing healthy plants! That hairgrass is quite chunky and tall, maybe split it up into smaller portions?

beautiful....nice growth, and pretty color contrast. It will be a shame to see it replaced with slow growers.

Oooh, that macrandra is really deep red. You should move it to a more prominant position with some green behind it!

New scape?

Here is what I have in mind for my furture scape.
I already have ordered the missing plants, and expect them to arrive soon.

What do You think of my planned scape?

Loving it. Beautiful and healthy. My only suggestion might be a bit of driftwood or such to give it a little more wild look. Maybe just a little less dutch in style.

Wow that is a beautiful tank. Your plants look to be in almost perfect condition. I agree a more natural look might look better though.
