The Evolution is complete
great improvement.. but i do not like the bushy one (middle up) in ur tank.. what is the plant name? it's make ur tank looks untidy.. but it's only my opinion.. anyway, can u tell me what should i do to make a HC grow fast like ur tank progress?? haha
The plant in the middle is E.Vivipara, It is usually straight and not so untidy, I did a water change recently so when the level comes down, the fine leaves get entagled and give a untidy look, Will have to use a tweezer to straighten it out.
Cuba is a relatively easy plant, It needs good CO2 leavels and Nutrients either from Substrate or Water Column. Also keep trimming as it grows it promotes sideward growth.
That's a great looking tank right there! I actually like the wild look of vivipara, and normally I dont like it, but it fits perfectly here. The contrast between HC cuba and the crypts is beautiful, and my only critic would go to the foreground, which is very linear. You could have broken the line with more visible wood or stones, or different plant types, e.g. small crypts, e tenellus or other.
Hi Jorgen - Thank Yo ufor your appreciation and feedback, I agree with the foreround being very uniform, Initial plan was to put in some pieces of Driftwood and i had a few pieces kept for sinking, Let me see what i can whip up
Nice Result! =D
Excellent results, love the final scape
Very well executed :amillanbliss:
I take my words back about too centered wood. It is a very nice island.
Somehow the wood looked much smaller on first picture, maybe due to wide lens?
@ Edis: The initial set of pictures the camera was placed such that the entire aquariums filled in the frame. But this picture i took from a distance such that the entire aquarium fit within the focus area of the frame and then cropped it :Happy:
Nice aquarium... I need your help. Please can u tell me where I can find the supplies for aquascaping, like substrates, fertilizers and plants... Waiting for ur reply
Nice tank, is this still running?
the layout would have been perfect from start to finished if the twirling of the e.vivipara
was fixed before clicking the camera.
cheers you did a great job with your tank
