    Still going for that "Nature style" type of setup.
    From now on, my mind is set on growing back the Eleocharis in front. E. parvula had it's ups and downs due to the high temperature (27-29 degrees C) and being shadowed by the plants in middleground area.

    You Aquascape is something beginners should look at and study just something so simple yet when done correctly and left alone (trim only) it develops into something to be very proud off.

    Keith, i think the part with "left alone" is one of the most important aspects in chasing a "nature style" setup.

    Here is a close up, with cool light :

    That is the secret when you have a "Nature Style" tank let it grow and only do a very light trim when its necessary.

    Alex I fully agree with Roy the lighting on the first photo gives it a natural feel about it where as all the lighting just does not look as pleasing to look at.

    Disregarding all that its a great tank.

    Again great photos.
