Hello to all at The Hydra.
This is my 56 gallon column hitech birthday present. It will be 2 years old next month. I've been told October's birthday present is going to be something special. I have to admit I cheated and looked at browser history. If thats what I'm getting she didn't lie.
This is my first and only hitech setup everything previous was salt or low tech. One day I was researching why my Rotala Wallichi was losing all its needles after months of good growth. I stumbled upon another forum with a vast amount of information. I was instantly mesmerized. I scoured as much information as possible.
After seeing all the gorgeous hitech tanks, I decided I was going to do one. A year later I received my birthday present. I month early since it was on sale.

Before rescape. I wanted to bring the Aflame back out. Plus i didn't like how much space the driftwood was taking up.
After rescape. This is how i originally had the driftwood its just angled a little more for par issues.
