Wow that looks amazingly identical. Very pleasing look too as the front rocks have a slope t it give it a settled look.

Not too sure about the background hairgrass actually... might destroy the concept in the end. How about raise the soil towards the back (especially the 2 back corners) and plant HC there? And hopefully the HC at the back will creep near the top of the rocks... nearer to your inspiration. I think it will further dramatize your valley too.

Nice inspiration photo.
It is good to see what you are trying to do and I think you were able to re-create it very well.
Now to see how it fills in.
I will be watching for updates.

Hi Jervis, thank you for your comment. I'm not so sure too.. the tank was planted yesterday.. that's why the HC is not spreeding along the soil.. But when i planted the eleocharis i thought it would steal depth. But i will give her a chance :) to see how she grows, but probably she will have to come off.

This Tank has a great potencial, i hope the HC grow fast and pretty :)

Thank you all for your comments, i'm very happy.. the HC cuba is growing already with only 4 days after planting. Well I have to admit, I have used ADA Green Gain, because as you know the HC takes a little time to accustom in the tank, so I change the water daily and i add 1 drop of green gain and a little portion of micronutrients, the plant says "thank you" and we can see her already spreading the leaves.

All plants love fresh water.. that's the key... :)

Here is the picture:





Best Regards
