    What is that plant in the back? Looks like Rotala rotundafilia, but I could definitely be mistaken. I love your scape!

    Looking good Mark. Dare I say it is starting to get that 'Amano' spooky look to it.

    No I mean in a good way. I like the 'spooky' looking Amano ones. what I don't like is when he starts again and it looks the same at the end :lol:

    That is why most of the time we can tell whether it is Amano scape or not. His scape have distinct style/character.
