    Virgin poster to this forum. Been keeping tanks for about 5 years now. I enjoy the Dutch style so my entire time in the hobby I've been swimming against the tide of Nature and Iwagumi tanks. Currently I own a 40 breeder main tank, 20 gallon grow out tank and an out of commission 7 gallon cube. Here's a couple of incarnations of my current scape. All input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Welcome to ASW can you fill in your Country and location please.

    The photos did not work I suggest you use Photobucket its easy to use and its free.

    For some reason they took a long time to download.

    By the look of those two tank you are certainly not a newcomer to Aquascaping.

    Welcome to ASW!

    Very lovely tanks. They look very healthy. My only critique would be..there needs to be more defined shape to the midground and background areas. While it looks great, the two areas are becoming one dimensional as they are blended together. Perhaps trimming the midground slightly, and/or tighter groups will help.

    Oh, please update your location in your profile when you get a chance.

    I used the tapatalk app to upload them. Thanks. I'm not a newcomer, but forever a noob.

    Thanks John. The midground has always been the tougher area for me. Seems that plants suited to the mid area are tougher to come by. I'll try a good trim and see how things shape up.

    Got a new Rhinox diffuser and a filter output. Been keeping a little closer eye on the tank and things are looking better.
