    Beautiful aquascape! Wonderful work. You did a great job adding details to the sand and around the larger stones with smaller stones.

    You should consider moving your CO2 diffuser to the other side, it may help improve your CO2 efficiency. The crypt in the back may need a root tab, the curling leaves may be a sign of a deficiency.

    All in all this is a great aquascape. Thanks for sharing it! (y)

    Glad you like it ! :)

    Thanks for the nice words :)

    About the diffuser , the big reason for placing him that way is that the suction cups are on the right side and I can do nothing about that , so I don't want the diffuser to stand with his back and with co2 hose at the front glass. It's all about the look with me , if you understand what I mean. :)
    And believe me is so effective under the lily pipe output because this way I can distribute the bubbles all over my tank and so I have a better dissolution of CO2.

    The crypt in the back is doing fine, is growing very good (actually I use nutritive capsules from Tropica and tomorrow it's time to put another one for them) , they are curling that way because of the water current.

    P.S. glad to see you here too :)

    I know exactly what you mean! And I believe when Amano was asked why he put the diffusers up so high in his tanks, he said he thought it looked better. So, Mr. Amano knew what you were talking about, too ;)

    The best thing you can do for any aquarium get every thing correct for that tank so every thing is working efficiently.

    Hi ,
    I'm back with a short update.

    I increased the dose of fertilizer Dennerle Scaper Green at 4 ml/day, Dennerle NPK Booster at 4ml/day and Easy Carbo at 5 ml/day , also the addition of CO2 to 3 bps, I had some problems with Fuzz algae . Now it appears that is giving back, I tend to think that 2 bps was not enough although the permanent CO2 test was yellow when I was using 2 bps .

    I also added a few new plants here and there, including Anubias Nana Pinto and Pangolino .

    And here's the pic taken yesterday with my phone :

    This is excellent. Beautiful scape!

    I love the addition of the chocolate gouramis, they look really nice in here. Thanks for updating us!

    I have a little algae here and there because I was making changes to fast and all at the same time :D like playing with the CO2 addition , ferts and light.
    But for sure that I will manage to get rid of them with good maintenance , nutrients balanced and stable CO2 addition. :)

    I personally like an Aquascape when it starts to develop that natural appeal and get away from the perfectly manicured artificial look.

    I really like your tank. I just started in this hobby and currently only have a small 5.5 gallon tank. I hope when I get a larger tank I can create something as beautiful as yours.

    This is the place to learn, start off slowly and learn as you go, it will not happen overnight.
