Rule of thirds in affect! Hit about one third across, back, and high with the driftwood where it branches. That's my focal point. No subordinate focal point, but I did throw some moss rocks where that would be. Not real impressed with the rock placement or the anubias. I took the coffeefolia and Lagenandra out for the pictures.
I'll try and get some better pictures later. With the rescaping I seem to have gotten tannins from the soil. I was wondering when they would show up. A water change will get rid of them, but last night they seemed to make taking a clearer pic even tougher. I have enough trouble doing that on my own, thank you very much!
That's the lutea on the right side. Since last night when I planted it, it has started to melt a little. That's fine. It's joining the pontederfolia which has started as well. That's right I can melt the crypt that everyone says doesn't melt! The affinis melted away, the wendtii green looks like it wants to melt away those last leaves, while the wendtii Mi Oya is happily doing away with all of their leaves. The wendtii green gecko is fine. Turns out that Lagenandras can melt too! Add all that to the C. tonkinensis and wendtii bronze that melted even before I got to the upgraded tank. I want upgraded from president to king. If I pull this tank off though I want known as the most patient man alive. I expected some difficulty, maybe not at this level, but some. It's still newly set up though and the plants are mostly new that are melting so I'm not worried. Except for the Mi Oya. We had a great time at first, now we hate each other. Don't worry my spite for it will live on long after it's gone...so maybe about a week.
