How does it look?

What do you think of my newly rescaped 5gal. I want to get some more colourful plants in there, but for now i think it looks pretty good, and im getting some awsome plant growth.

I think it looks great!! I love the lighting.......its slightly overpowering but I still like it.
It makes it look like a sunrise shot.

Very nice.......what kind of driftwood is that?

That would be St. Clair River driftwood, lol.

As for the light, i really needed some higher light so i rigged up my hood to hold another bulb, it does look kindof crappy but it makes the plants happy. I think i have a total of 34w over this tanks, and its only a 5gal, so yeah, a little overpowered.

I didn't bother pruning when i rescaped because i plan on sending most of these plant for a trade for some CRS. I will have some more room for some red plants then too.

Thanks GlitcH, it means so much coming from you

Looks awesome! Use that tank as the inspiration for the 10 gallon in that aquascaping contest and you should be all set!
