    Hello, I'm new to the forum, though I've kept planted tanks for a few years now. Using this post to test out posting. Currently running this 3 feet tank (actually 35 inches, odd dimension due to old custom build). Still reading forum posts on how to attach pics/ or link to other sites.

    Very nice scape... lots of color contrast in the various plants used.

    Re: 3Ft Mound scape

    Thanks for the kind comments. I'm still reading up on how to post pics, I do have some closeups but need a hosting site, I have some pics at plantedtank.net but not sure if can link to there from here. The right side of the tank is still half-baked though, think the flow doesn't favour the plants at the back so I'm still changing things up there.

    the contrast makes the red look really awesome! great dutch piece!
    must be challenging working with so many types of plants. love the height build up from front to back.

    any fauna living in this beautiful tank?

    I have 15 CPDs inside, and a couple of Otos; I see some spawning behavior in the CPDs, but afraid the females may be overly stressed by the male chasing them around. They seem to be still feeding normally etc though.

    Oh yes, can see the dots reflected from the water. Its a BML fixture (from US), its their dutch XB fixture. However, I also have a warm CFL light on top because I think visually its a bit cool.

    Its barely 2 months old actually. I started on 25/7, converted some plants from this older scape, which deteriorated after I came back from overseas trip. The AR minis & rosenavig are from Fishy Business (really like that shop).

    It is Ludwigia sp. red, though I'm told its likely to be a variant of Ludwigia palustris, but I'm not sure if this has been confirmed or not. Yeah, there are RGB leds; there are 2 types of green if I'm not wrong, one green and the other is more cyan ? However, for this fixture I cannot dim the individual colors. It does produce pretty good Par values though.

    Re: 3Ft Mound scape

    Nice scape but you need to tune down and focus the red plant, currently it is all over place and become distraction. Red plant can be a friend but can also an enemy depending where you put it.

    Yes, i think this is very true. Its a bit fragmented, I'm thinking which clump to remove or replace. Luckily AR quite mobile

    Re: 3Ft Mound scape

    I love the AR sp Mini. They are my favourite plant. I thought the colour contrast was pretty good in terms of the graduating colours. Red and slight red. Maybe you can remove the plant at the top right hand column. Best to be a greener plant. That keeps the red focus in the centre. Just a thought. I like how you managed to bring out the reds. Not an easy task. I presume you brought down nitrates and then increase iron and of course your lights are pretty strong already in the first place.
