Great looking tank! I thought I'd bump this recent shot onto the current page.

You keep changing it... quite drastically by the looks of it.... is that what I have to look forward to....constant changes in aquascaping? I know I can't keep my hands out of my tank, moving this, changing that, but I thought it was only because it's all brand new.

Oh, my name is Jeff and I am an aquaholic....

thanks.
it is the beauty of aquascaping you can always change the final pose.:D its some sort of a never ending, always changing art.
by the way, i really didn't do much changes on the tank, the hardscape remained the same but i kept on changing the position of the plants.:DD
HPK!

Moving the plants makes it look like a whole new setup.

Sort of like when my wife decides to move the furniture.... all I can say is that I am damn glad we sold the piano...

i seem to forgot how to post my pics here, it took me several tweaks to upload this thing right.
changes:
i took pearlweed and replaced it with hairgrass (E. acicularis.
more crypts sprouting, one in the very front.:D.
i just realized that when the plants grow larger my filtration became less efficient

Because they bloomed before you planted it and you put the bloom underwater?

(happened to me with anacharis once.)

Looking great.

It's not so much that your filtration became less efficient, it became more redundant. Moving the water is harder with so many plants but it may depend on the fish if it is even needed that much.
