    Thanks ;)
    That means that was a good choice using tiny branches istead bigger ones. :)
    Any advise? Rock arrangement is good? May the layout need more rocks or branches?

    Um abraço!

    You're right Paulo, there's some HCC, I don't buy any new just use what I had before, so it will take a litle more time to fill in. The right side of tank will get some changes.

    Thanks rawr, it's the best to get home and rest in front of the tank ;)

    I decided to cut off all the sagitaria I've in the right side of the tank, because of his large leafs that not fit in there.
    It get empty but seams better to me.

    Also added another branche between the blyxas.

    Best regards,
    Diogo

    for sure the foreground needs to develop, but when it does, it will look stunning
