So... I woke today with that itch... that itch which says 'I can make this aquarium look much better'

I scratched the itch and... Well, the results are below. I've tried to balance the brown wood with crypts on the other side... and the Tennellus needs to thicked up somewhat...

(apologies... i'm no photographer... and the water is still a touch cloudy)

and finally..., the bunch of tarts begging for food:

Got rid of the soil substrate... new substrate is 1 bag of argos play sand mixed with 1.4kg of JBL floropol, topped with another bag of sand. The light substrate is really making the most of my 'old fashioned' T8 lighting! :rolleyes: 8)

For comparison... the old scape:

I like the open space, but... just seem like that lovely branchy wood is tucked out the way too much now.
It was a good focal point to begin with IMO. I suppose once the plants fill out then it'll get a focal point back.

Beautiful tank mate :)

What is your exact setup, tank size, substrate and maintenance schedule for the plants?

I saw a tank very similar to yours in the flesch recently and have to have one myself one day.

The sand looks so much better than the gravel. Well done :)
