Hi all,

A couple of weeks since initial planting, and one week since flooding, and all is well. :)

The fish have been re-homed and I've added 20 or so CRS from my breeding tank.

There's no sign of algae (yet...) and the plants are carpeting nicely.

Stone arrangement is perfect. That focal point stone with a slightly white was maybe a small risk but turned out great :)
Photos are beautiful, but that's just usual :D
Watching with great interest that Elatine growing.

Thanks guys! :)

This looks great. Nice with some asymmetry, finally :).

I see you have gone away from the spraybars. Any particular reason?

Yeah, when I created this layout my priority was to avoid any triangles and symmetry in fear of your retribution, Thomas. :)

No particular reason for lily over spray bar, other than lily is easier to install and clean. I'm not sure what difference they'd make in this layout in terms of circulation. Anyway, the lily seems to be working out fine so far...

Thanks! :)

I think, as discussed earlier, it's not actually an Elatine, but a Micranthemum. But yes, I'm very excited about this plant. I think I will be able to create a good sense of depth with it by letting it grow thicker between the rocks and in the background. :)

I knew the pressure would eventually pay off :). No, seriously, this is really good, you have a good hand with stone and iwagumi.

There seems to be a bit of confusion around this plant. Is this the one known also as Montecarlo 3? I have just ordered this myself and was pleased to see how tiny the leaves are - almost comparable with HC as far as I can tell.

looks great so far and growing in nicely, love the large rock with the white face really sets the scape off, glad you now have some live stock in there looking forward to vid
