Very nice hardscape! Welcome to the planted tank. This is going to be quite a beautiful tank once it fills in.
u really think so? thank u so much for the compliment.. ^_^ bt i did have a hard time with that hardscape. ^^,

Yeah for sure, that's very impressive for someone who's never had a planted tank before. Good job! :proud:
^^, thank u so much!

i'll update the tank weekly or every other week.. ^^
