    Thanks randy, i know i m a silly boy :D. I just take the heater out for the final picture :p.

    Some small changes... attached some riccardia on 2 stones and added gravel along the sand. i know at the moment it looks somehow strange, but i m sure if l.b. started to grow between the gravel it ll look good.

    I think that it is developing nicely and might be worthy of competition...your call though.

    why don't you get a 10foot tank? You wouldn't have to worry about the angel fish looking too big for a couple of years then.

    I made some changes in the right background to give rotala more space.
    i m not satisfied with the left side too and i ll try to do some changes in the near future.

    Garuf, if i would win the lottery i would built a house with a lot of space for a LOT of tanks :D

    if I win the Euromillions I'll send you some your way haha. Me my dream tank would be a 8foot by 8foot by 4foot I think. Settee on three sides and a deck above on a mezzanine to look into the top.
    We can but dream!

    Update! changed the left side a little bit, rotala rotundifolia is now planted all the way through in the background. please don t mind the unexact trimming of rotala, it needs to grow and fill anyway ;).

    Before Trimming and changing...

    now better but still unbalanced as you have different plant species on each side of the tank

    Hi Flo, I regular follow the progress of your tank, but it seems that from the beginning you missing the real sense of positioning of the woods, which may drastically change the look of the scape!!! if you like it you can try!!! a sketch shown as follows!!! A small description: your positioning of rock is really appreciable to match the plants positioning, but that gives a vacant triangle(golden triangle or shifted harmonious triangle), you need to just touch that triangle with some wood positioning, also your rotala is coming inside the triangle but in a unsymmetrical way(as Juri also said), so its (as of now)not working.IMHO!!!

    Thank you for your advice parthapratim, i appreciate it!
    I can t move some of the dw as you mentioned, the left dw is to small to put it onto the hill, on the middle left dw anubias is attached and it s a massive piece and not easy to move to anywhere else. the right dw is one piece too, so i can t move just one branch. I agree with you in the point that the middle dw where the moss is attached is distracting. i have some other pieces flying around, so i ll try to add some as you mentioned. thanks. i keep you update.
