    Thanks

    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.

    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?

    Thanks Guys

    @ 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:

    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(y)
