    Tank layout looks really nice, when the plants take off you will have interesting layers

    Wow, looks much better than I would have thought! never doubt!
    I like how the Star goes down he side.
    How long have you been scaping? you seem to have far surpassed expert imo when it comes to layouts and mechanics.
    And is the scape in your profile pic yours? would love to see that one! autumn colors in a scape to me are... mind blowing!

    btw 10 months is fast for a few days LOL!

    Wow, sorry I keep asking questions, trying to learn s'more ;)
    What lighting did you use on it? or was it DIY lighting? btw I saved this as my background image... those colors I just love.
    also I think I see something mixed in with the hygro's in that scape... rotala sp. green?

    What's the brand or mix name of the liquid fertilizer you use? Or is it a DIY? Do you know how much stuff you dose in your tank in terms of ppms?
