    FANTASTIC Where have you been hiding its been over two years since your last posting.

    I am sure many particularly the new comers would have liked to see how you developed that tank using a Journal.

    It looks challenging to hide all of those zip ties.

    Once they are cut and an Algae covers the plastic they will never be seen.

    Your excellent Aquascape is capable of holding your interest for a very long time.

    With the natural algae on those rocks will give it the real natural and wild appeal.

    Unfortunately you lose that pop of color from the stone with the algae. IMO clean stone looks better.

    By removing the natural Algae the Aquascape loosed its natural wild appeal.

    In my opinion it looks better cleaner. With all the algae on it you lose the details and color of the stones, and that's kind of the opposite of what you want with such a hardscape dominant scape.

    This is where good research helps when Aquascaping you often come across a problem solver and I am positive an ASW member will have an answer for you.
