i've made a lot of changes to my fish tank, so i thought i'd just share with everyone.

here are a few progression pics of the tank since it started.

not sure of the date on this one, but its from the day i first set it up.

 -

a couple weeks later (i think) lol

 -

04-08-06

 -

05-06-06: rearanged the plants to be in groups, rather than spread out, and moved the driftwood focalpoint to follow the "golden equation"

 -

5-27-06: here i had a bout of algae and had to cut stuff back

 -

6-17-06: mostly beat back the algae. removed the heavy chunk of driftwood and replaced it with some branches from my maple tree.

That is so awesome.
What is the stuff growing up through the bottom that looks like grass?
(I guess you can tell I don't have an aquarium!)
It looks so nice!

its dwarf hairgrass, [Razz] that was a pain to plant. it comes in a pot in a big clump. its actually about 100 little bitty plants all stuck together on runners. i had to break them each appart and press them into the sand with tweezers. took about an hour and a half and i was soaked.
