Nice Nigel, maybe the MC is an bit too large for this tank, HCC would suit better?

I agree HC would be better but to much headache out of aqua soil. MC leaves can almost be the same as HC, if you have plenty light and trim often. Also the MC is only in front so should be doable IMO.

Elatine hydropiper would have been another option but it's an slow grower

Elatine is beautiful but a tricky bitchy plant. To much risk for a contest thats so close. Can melt out of no where. Also mc is a good choice between hardscape because it always creeps down.

Yeah elatine Goes slow Haha

Got some on my 60P and yes, it has take it's Time to melt and then grow but once it does, it's like mini glosso.

Gotta agree about MC; easy, simple to trim and care and creeping habits.

Very tiny baby shrimp. Only a few mm. Hard to photograph! On some micranthemum micranthemoides and on the right some monte carlo leaves.

I've never been an huge fan of diorama scapes but I have to say, yours is awesome, well deserved man!

What's the plant in the front corners? Hemianthus micranthemoides?

Can we have an FTS of this beauty?

Thanks! :clap:
