Wow, really awesome. Love the detailed pics - half of them could be a 'scapes in their own right!

I keep umm-ing about Bolbitis Mini - it looks great here, but I've read it doesn't actually like being submersed?

It is quite reminiscent of your old scape... If you're feeling adventurous, perhaps you may want to adjust to a diagonal path (instead of straight down the middle). But looking very nice!

Thank you, Alexander!
It's still far from what i invision. Will definelty work to improve it and to keep the hardscape intact, not covered.

Bolbitis mini seems to do just fine for now, new leaves after losing a few during the first 2 weeks. I'll keep you guys posted.

I might change some things in the weeks to come, if not with the help of some small plants, maybe ending up on working on the hardscape a little.
