    This is beautiful! I like how the eye flows from left to right smoothly.

    Roy Fantastic as Hallas stated there is such "smooth" eye flow over every thing it the tank no sudden stops along the way.

    Roy a few very interesting photos there, all the fine air bubbles on the under service of the water, the drift wood is very central but when all the plants are established it will give a very interesting effect.

    With the back RH are you going to add height or wait to see how the current plants grow?

    Front foreground rocks or ?

    Overall a tank well worth watching it develop.

    Hi Keith, Thank you (y) RH Side Not sure i may add a couple of Crypts the bronze ones from the Cube ???

    The Foreground ??? Thinking of letting the HC drift over the back stones but keeping the front clear ??

    Ho and i changed the colour of the front substrate to black "" Well the best i could "" Another great idea from you. Looks a lot better mate (y)

    Great again Roy (y)
    Do not overgrow it! If you use some Crypt. Wendtii you should remove a part of the anubias.

    Roy its often those little details could mean a lower rating, it stood out like one little white stone on a dark substrate.

    Hi Greenfinger,

    anubias look healthy! :D

    To my mind, it is your most original tank and this piece of DW reminds me of the prow of a ship!

    Hi Glomeridae, Thank you for your kind words.

    Funny you should say a ship :D The shape of the wood reminds me of a Chinese Junk :)

    Hi All, Trimmed back the Anubias in the middle of the DW:) Thank you Evelyn great advice there looks a lot better ;)
    Plus I have planted another Crypt on the RH side.

    The baby Crypts I planted in the front are just beginning to grow. As are the other plants :cool:

    Roy

    Your Aquascape is developing along very nicely, by adjusting as it develops you will finish with a far better Aquascape than you imagined.

    Hi Roy, I really like the piece of wood with the planting. I would have preferred to see that piece highlighted more. It is getting lost amongst all the other things. I think as a wabi-kusa the riccia worked nicely. I'm not so sure as it grows out submerged. Moss may have worked better, IMO.
