    I've always meant to do that, but keep forgetting I'll have to get a better pic. My camera wants to focus on the nana that is behind it. It's so tiny!

    Anubias pinto is really nice. It's cool that it is a cross. Tx for the link :)

It definitely needs a supplemental light in red and blue.
    I think the opportunity I had with the light had a few factors. First, Tim the toolman Taylor lives inside of me. Kidding, but more power is not always what is needed. I bought a Ray 2 because the more power side did not understand the light side of the trinity.

    I also did not really understand co2 concentration and how to maximize co2 with light

    Finally, I still donít really understand fertilizer. It is easy to use a calculator like Rotalla Buttery. It is easy to use a test kit and measure macros. My brain does not get how calcium affects potassium and manganese was impacting iron, let alone gluconate chelate.

    What I now understand in a limited way is too much light and no co2, or limited co2 is an algae disaster

    ^^Yes, I was surprised how much PAR the Ray IIs emit.

    I don't have co2 on any of my tanks. I believe that might have something to do with the fact that my Ray II fixture does not grow plants well. I have had success with dirted tanks avoiding adding co2, but only at first while the dirt decomposes in high amounts. I've tried filtering it, but it's still too bright I guess.

    Okay, here is take 2-- I lost sight of my inspiration video because I didn't have the nice branching pieces of Hornwood that would have made that aquascape work. But, Im kinda liking this one. The only thing that is throwing me is the Hornwood on the left, but I need some more weight over there. I do have another large Seiruyu stone-- I suppose I could play with that .

    Give all critiques and ideas-- good, bad, and indifferent :)

    Thanks @Riyadh. Im glad you liked it at least :)
    I do have Java Fren coming. The moss on the wood I will be doing too- but, didn't order it for this time.

    Well, here is round two.
    What do you'all think?

    I like two better. I canít tell you why other than symmetry. Small detail adjustments are not my forte. I either love it or donít love it
