Thank you guys. My family and friends have all gasped in amazement; they've never seen anything like it. Being here on the forum, with all of you who are knowledgeable in the hobby and have seen planted aquariums before and you all saying you like it means a lot.

I've never attempted anything like this before, so I must have done something right. Being a bit of a perfectionist, when I look at it I see things that I don't quite like, plants out of place and such..but overall I'm pretty pleased with it, I can't wait until the plants fill out a little bit. It was worth the time and money I put into it. I don't regret it one bit.

Like, really good. Cant wait for the backdrop to start filling in, plus the discus to get bigger. Monthly updates will need to be a must!
