    Sorry to be a problem

    I like the original hardscape much better than the new one. I wonder if that is why you got so few responses at first? It was just so good that nobody could think of a suggestion. To me, the original look had a real impact, and all the changes have just made it more bland.

    Just personal preference of course.

    Thanks Tea Man and Houstonhobby.

    @Houstonhobby.... It may be both the way. Either the scape was too good or the scape was too ugly that I didn't get any response initially. >:) Anyway, I liked the new scape much more after making the changes. The old one was looking to bare to my eyes.

    Hey Tirtha da, the final hardscape is really nice:rock:
    Are you using vivipara in the background?
    All the best:)

    Since you don't want HC and you think Glosso leaves will be too big, maybe you could try Eleocharis (acicularis or parvula). But you will need to trim it very short, like grass, otherwise it gets too high for this tank.

    And for the back, why not trying something else than the usual Rotala sp. green or HM ? Like for instance Mayaca fluviatilis, or Micranthemum umbrosum with a slight touch of Ludwigia arcuata...

    Just ideas... ;)

    Bang on!! I as also thinking about Umbrosum. In my 120G they are groing like weed. Surely will try them out in this scape.

    I thought about pervula. But after trimming they looks ugly for next 2 weeks. :sad:


    @Jurik,,, don't you think Juncus Repens will be too big for this scape??? Never seen in naked eyes though.

    I am not sure if you guys have the Nature Aquarium Book 2008 (ADA Catalog). Can any one tell me, what Plant, Amano has used in the scape of Black Hakkai Stone layout (Gallery 7)??

    Looking like any lilaeopsis Sp. but not sure though.
