    No point critiquing if your cutting it down. Great feel to the tank. Somber for sure.

    Damn that HC is thick! Looks like it's time for a heavy trim. Plants are very healthy and happy. Well done.

    I am glad that you all liked the tank..Thanks a lot..
    @octavusprime..you are absolutely right..the HC needs to be trimmed..actually i had not trimmed the HC because i wanted it to give a wild effect.

    Give it a cut real low, sell the trimmings. It will recover fast in your tank.
