    In the full fever of Bucelitis, I decided it was time to rescape the first tank I ever did. Grabbed more Seiryu Stone and more acid to dip them in. Amazing contrast. I'll get a pic up as soon as I lay them all out. Have all my DW out and ready... going in at 5:02am

    I wanted to keep the wild look and in the spirit of the original, 1st scape I ever made - I didn't plan a hardscape and just went in on the fly. I wanted to use every plant in the original layout, and also managed to do so - with a good handful or 2 of S. Repens left over. Will post pictures soon!

    Thanks for posting.

    What are your plans for fish?

    Not sure just yet. I had neons, rummynose, panda corys, ottos and SAEs in there previously. Wouldn't mind trying some new species. Any suggestions that work well with planted tanks? Better yet, what type of fish would enjoy the scape?

    Have you seen furcata rainbows? Really cool fish, active and bright blue eyes with yellow fins.

    I also enjoyed Vietnamese white clouds in my last scape. School loosely, active, don't need a heater and nice color.

    Get some plants (moss?) over the rocks and tone them down a bit.

    The java fern should do that as it grows out. Seems like a waste of seiryu to cover it in moss.

    Should I leave the substrate open in the front around the seiryu or finish the carpet. Still have a poop-ton of S. Repens....

    Planting the front section would enforce the island appearance. Personally I'd do it, cause more plants is better.

    Well, nature doesn't leave much space.
