    Thanks waterfaller1.

    I have introduced Rotala sp.green in the place of Ludwigia, and in a few days I'll post some updates.

    almost

    The scape is almost done. Still few things left - to create a nice bush from Rotala green and nanjenshan, Valisneria nana to fill in a litle more, and Eleocharis too. And to trim mosses one more time, before final shot.

    Well I thought it would be finished soon, but while I was trimming mosses, somehow I managed to to ruin big moss bush on the left. I deatached it totaly from the driftwood, so I put all driftwoods from the front part of the tank out and attached a new tinn layer of moss on them. So, final shot must wait for driftwoods to be covered.

    Here are some pics

    HFR july

    Well it's been a while, and now is a time for an update.

    I had to rearrange some things, since the left corner was getting totally wild. So I put out Crypt. wendtii green and Saggitaria subbulata, and rescape the left part of the tank. Also, I was not satisfied with my Gllossa growing to high because of its density, so I replanted it, and now hopefully it wil spread out in a nice compact low carpet.

    I am not happy with a thing I've done with Microsorum narrow, since I cut all of its leaves, and it is a slow grower, but...

    Here are some pics

    boah, i would kill this shrim killer!! you must knwo i love shrimps :)

    nice tank and an awsome progress.

    time to time it is need to make bigger trimming sessions if you know what i mean, because if not - once the tank became too wild - there will be no more chance to resque the scape and only rescpaing will be the way out of the wildnes .. lol

    LOL, that's a good shot of your "Shrimp Killer". It looks like the fish is enjoy a tastey snack!

    Big layout change from your previous aquascape. Very tight dense growth. Very hard to do, but you've done it well.

    The end

    This scape has finished its carer. I was not at happy with appearances of driftwoods, and it became overcrowded with plants in middle so I rescaped it.

    Here some of the last photo taken
