Just finished trimming the scape, it was long overdue. Before trim...

Thanks @Jayefc1.
Still suffering the green Eheim inflow, not very aesthetically pleasing, but a new glass one is on order.
This is the scapes last trim, I'm going to let it grow back in a little and then I'll take the final shots.
After that I'll be tearing it down and scaping my new ADA Cube Garden 60P.
Some post trim pics...

Fabulous tank! Will be sad to break it down. I could provide a good home for some of that wood it is surplus to requirements! :)

Very beautiful and awsome scape Tim!. Looks hardscape wise a bit like my low tech, i scaped it in the same fashion with similar looking wood. But plant wise i'm not even half your way and i'm over 2 years into the process without trimming it once. :lol: Scapes like yours are definitively testing my patience keeping mine still low tech.

Quick update. The plants are growing at a pace since the last trim.
Took delivery of some new pump dispensers today, easier to use than the original TNC bottles...

Thanks guys...
@Jayefc1 yeah, it's always a bit of a wrench to tear a tank down, but the urge to scape again is too strong to resist ;)
@zozo thanks Marcel, plants like cocktails too :rolleyes: maybe I should get an optic dispenser like Sascha Hoyer’s :cool:
@Nelson, thanks Neil, knew you'd appreciate them :p
@Daveslaney thanks Dave :)
