    Wormcasting capped with turface (shultz aquatic soil)
    Metricide for Carbon source..
    Ei dosing with mock tropica mastergrow.

    Success with..
    P. stellatus, and Broad leaf (colour good on BL not P.Stellatus, its just green)
    Blyxa, rotalla indica,rotala wallichii, and other rotallas in green. have about 18 different kinds of plants in there crypts included.. I keep wanting it to look better, yet re scapes are always lacking. Ive only been doing planted for 2 years...

    but I am having a hard time figuring out what should go where, as I cant for the life of me see what Im doing when I climb up on top of canopy. I've recently placed bylxa in a lazy s curve from one side to another but I can already see it looks too contrived...(pic of previous scape.)

    With such height is there a different approach I should be looking at?

    I'd look at the behemoth tank I did and see how that was put together using wood and ferns etc, thigns that do not require much hacking etc.
    Crypts on the bottom, nice open sand front edges etc.

    You simply are never going to keep up trimming a bunch of weedy stem plants in there, not for long.
