    Thank you Keith, this tank is right next to my dining table so often after eating breakfast i will just turn and watch it until i convince myself i have stuff to get done. I'm going to try yo trim it up today (after.work, a job interview and a trip to the gym). The only thing is, i have NO IDEA how to trim and/or propagate the.crypts growing between the rocks and wood

    Another update. Boy those crypts sure are taking off, However I noticed the front right corner appears to be a little bare, I think I took a few Dwarf Sags out and used them in other tanks

    Every thing looks very healthy nothing a good trim and fill that gap in would not fix.

    I can see 1 Endler and a few shrimps what else is in that tank.

    Thank you Keith, I have maybe ten male endlers (currently breeding more) a bunch of cherry shrimp, 4 neon tetras(going to buy about 6 more) aaaand a lovely Betta named Tupac, I was worried he would be unhappy in that tank or cause problems but he seems very happy and healthy and even had a little bubble nest going on, he's my favorite to watch he is always exploring and swimming underneath my plants and drift wood.

    Hi Rmac, First hope the move went ok and good luck in you new home (y)
    I like your new scape:) Are you going to grow a ground cover plant on the RH side of substrate or other planting ??
    One thing is that a moss ball i can see in the middle of your scape ?? If it is i would take it out as i have just been told by Andy&Shawn that there not good to have in your Aquascape:eek: As bits come off and settle in places you don't want it to be and can be very hard to get rid of :( I have taken them out of my tanks:( Shame its the only Algae i liked :D

    It's hard to tell with the crappy cellphone picture(I'll try to get a better picture)but the right side is planted with scattered dwarf hairgrass, hopefully it spreads :) Thanks for the info on the moss ball I will get rid of it, I only threw it in there because the RCS seem to like it.

    Thanks Keith, I somewhat prefer the tank with so much open space as it gives me a better area to watch my fish do their fishy thing. Like I said I'll try to get a better picture up
