Is all of that foreground Blyxa japonica?! In the fourth pic it looks like a huge field with some distant trees behind it. But in the full tank shot all the blyxa is a bit overwhelming. Perhaps remove the front row of blyxa and use a smaller groundcover to increase the sense of depth. Overall it looks very healthy and I like the mix of stems you've used. I think a bit more shaping of the stems at the left into individual groups would add to the overall look. You have some lovely fish in there. BTW, what size of tank is it?
Thanks. Its a 125 gallon. I am still not done with scaping. I have some HC I am trying to get growing, and once it does, I will clear some blyxa for it. Im glad you like the fish, I abolutely love my boesemani rainbows.
I use 2xT5HO Giesemann bulbs for my tank (1 Midday and 1 AquaFlora). Looks like the 12K is venturing into the spectrum that's more suitable for Saltwater Aquariums. You're saying that the plants are coloring up well.
They are on 12 hrs. a day. Like I said, I know it may be a bit much, but it is working out really good for me right now. If it becomes an issue I will cut the hrs of light back. If worse comes to worse, I will go out and buy some 8000K bulbs.
