Here is a few older pics of the tank, and then some pics from today.

I ended up removing the big driftwood, and putting in the cyprus behind the mini butterfly in order to accentuate the central apex and background for the driftwood. I moved the pogo erectus around to circle the wood. I love the erectus by the way. It stays relatively short and its such a beautiful plant. Its gotta be one of my fav plants so far. I also put the R.sp green on the right , just need to wait for it to grow in. I will then scape it on a slant from left to right in order to maintain the central focal point and height transition. I moved some of the buce below the branches in order to kill some of the direct light hitting them.

I hope the density of plants will help with the algae bloom as well.

Let me know what you guys think. Im very excited about the scape now. Thanks for all the input.

E parvula
fissidens nobalis

So a new fall calls for a new setup, This one is more of a dutchy taste to it. Im looking for some thick growth . I switched over from the 6x t5 36 inchers to 1x 150watt 8k metal halide and 2x 24 inch t5 ho.

I am also getting rid of the 6x t5h0 but one ballast needs replacement. 70 bucks to the first taker.

Anyhoot, enjoy the pics
