    @Pejc.. Thank you my Croatian friend, I am looking forward to see how your "vita e bella" will evolve. Excellent work, bravissimo !!

    @
    Voozle.
    . It is a great honor for a newbie like me to hear that my humble layout has given inspiration to some experienced aquascapers in the other side of the world ! Thank you for your comments.
    I will try to answer all of your questions and will post some more pictures to update how a tank evolves after left alone for 2 months.
    The plants you are asking are Cryptocoryne becketti "petchii" and the green clump is Pelia on lava rock.
    Here is a closer look:

    The good news is that my finances are getting much better and I will keep this tank running. A small rescape is already done and a major total rescape is programmed for september. I will keep it high tech :money: After all its my hobby and money (when present) are here to bring us some happiness.
    As for the photography part, I am a beginner and the only tips I can give you is to shoot as many pictures as you can with the camera on the manual mode, experiment and learn how to use your gear. Light is very important ! the more the better ! And good lenses give the best result.
    Good luck my friend !

    Please allow me to post some pictures of this tank and how it evolved the last months.
    This is how my tank looked lately, overgrown and with red plants making a stunning effect when reached the surface.

    And after a rescape on the right side, today it looks like that...

    Now in a few weeks am planning to rescape the left side also, and hopefully in 2-3 months a new layout will be born. I dont have any clue what I want to do..will just follow my instinct and the plant growth.
    Please feel free to comment. Thank you !

    Hi everybody..
    After nearly 3 months I started to rescape my tank, I proudly present to you my new layout.
    I am very satisfied and I think I like it more than the previous "skeleton ".
    Since I didnt had in mind a specific final image, I had to work mainly with my plants, shapes, forms and colors and of course some imagination.
    Happy birthday to my tank...Exactly before one year this day I was starting with this tank my very first steps in aquascaping !
