    Hi Alto
    I planted the tank yesterday, everything will look nicer after the first trimming, some of the plants are not visible yet cause too small
    Yes I am very happy with the light defo the best on market really shows the red and green of plants
    Tall grass is actually eriocaulon

    Well you certainly planted it for immediate effect, I'm sure it will look even more stunning when it's grown in.

    Thanks Tim I spent lots of time preparing the plants and dividing them in 3/4 different lengths so the plants looks ok from beginning
