    A very nice and wild feel. Some tall hairgrass and small ferns in place of the Tonina fluviatilis should complete the wild jungle effect.

    Thanks for your post. Do you mean, i should replace the Tonina, or just have an smooth transition from the low eleocharis to the higher Tonina??
    BTW: Is it possible to buy your driftwood, and how high woudl be the shipping to germany?

    greetz from the driftwood-free Germany...

    You can consider replacing the Tonina and use tall hairgrass (Eleocharis vivipara).

    For the driftwood, you can just refer to the prices on our website. Everything is calculated automatically. If in doubt, send us a pm or email.

    imo the depth efect is missing

    I had Glosso in there, have taken out, by changing tank. lol

    There is not enough depth, you're right in my opinion! I'll get better pictures soon. Than we are able to discuss that later on...

    Thanks for the posts!

    that looks really nice! Looks like it's straight out of the wild. I like the way the plants have filled in. I think the plants you currently have in there really work well, and better than the ones you had removed. Have you ever tried a black background?

    Thanks Chadly,

    thats a very good idea, going "back to the roots" and try a black backround.

    i'll show you pictures than....
    I hope the few algaes will disappear and the riccardia will grow better on the right side. Also the eleocharis has to grow better than now..

    cheers
