well done for your first attempt, I am in the same boat as you first attempt, then after a couple of week you think ? well i wish i had bought that other plant or I wish I had planted that one there instead of here - i am still playing around with mine cannot get it right.

Regards
paul.

What you need in there is some rocks and wood ;) some hardscape to compliment the plants ;)

How much lighting have you got? Looks good, but i agree it could do with some hardscape to not only break up the planting, but also to compliment it 8) And it would be nice if you've got some pictures of when you first planted it, just for comparison ;)

Get some Redmoor wood, would look great. Really nice tank though, well done.

cheers for the advice took on bould some of the coments,was not happy with my tank,just wasnt looking right,needed somthing else,went and brought some wood and redone it,once it starts filling in i think it will look alright,cutting the lighting down to 2x39w t5 bulbs for 9 hours, instead of 3x 39w wot i was running,hopfully that will sort the problems i was having out...... :D
