    I think the hardscape is really beautiful. The only thing that bothers me is the wood that is pointing straight up. It just seems to be not as elegant as the others.
    Very beautiful start though!
    Keep us updated please!

    Nice equipment, and fairly good photography. It's obvious you've done your research and put effort in.

    As for the scape itself, the stems seem crowded with little room to grow-- and even if they did fill in, it doesn't seem like there's much space for them to have a great visual impact. I'd skip 'em and go straight to something like Eleocharis. The hardscape does seem a bit . . . much. I don't know though, it's certainly interesting.

    Sweet setup :)

    I recommend you to get rid of the bolbitis. It will fill the entire tank with one leaf. I have one in my 60P and if takes up 70% of the volume. they gow huge!
    The windeløv will also grow too big.
    You could try to get hold of bolbitis cuspidate - it will only grow small leafs.

    on the other hand I lost few shrimps because of the lilypipe inflow.. so the HOB might be a good choice for a shrimp tank ;)

    Very nice scapes. I admire your work! Is the mid-section of the tank going to be filled with all Moss? Or do you plan to maybe put in some Needle Leaf Java Fern?

    Great works of art though!

    Moss will be in the middle a little bit to truncate revealed Mini Pelia.

    Until then I look forward to the growth of Bolbitisa and Hemianthusa the third plan​

    Great job!

    Is it possible to get a side shot of the tank?

    I am thinking about also setting up a Mini-M and wanted to get an idea of the proportions.
