    Ok, thank you for comments ;)
    Fishman, I wanted to have well shaped bushes like french gardens...it was the only condition that I have fixed for this scape.

    I'll send a frontal shot tonight or tomorrow...I didn't do that yesterday because MU bush (on the left) wasn't in really good condition. It's better today ! :)

    On the left side it's Cryptocoryne petchii and in front of Hemianthus micranthemoides (right) there is Cryptocoryne nevilli. I wanted them to be bigger than they are today but I had some problems to synchronize all plants...It's really hard to obtain exactly what I want :phew:

    Thanks again !!
    See you for FF.

    Regards

    hello,
    Here are full frontals. I have tried to put white background direct against the tank and then against the wall...to have the best shot. It is not really good but it give an idea ;)

    Thanks user367,

    I usually trim every two weeks. And I must cut each stem witch is too long or overgrown to conserve the appearance of shaped bushes.
