As many others have said, the grass land look looked lovely. Wonder why you stripped it off. Ultimately, regardless of all scaping, if the ultimate idea is to give the fishes a place that they're comfortable with, then I'd think that the last scape with the driftwoods don't do justice at all.
On that line, I'm curious - did your tetras withstand all these changes over a short period of time? How many are you left with?!
Glad you too liked the grassland. I stripped it down because I was too tied up with work and algae had decimated the hairgrass! The situation worsened to the point of no return!
The school of cardinals in the first two setups are different from the one that I have now. All from the first two setup died - due to a freak accident! - this was way back in 2009-10
Well, cardinals tend to hide a lot - especially in a stem setup. They are accustomed to just hairgrass setup - so I assumed they'd be fine!
FORTUNATELY they are comfortable. They are not hiding in between the stems! :)
The school that I have now has cardinals - ~ two years - few months old....strange but i lost four in last two days! (The big ones - Could it be there time now?) - there have been no deaths in over a year now.

Jack, sorry about the recent losses on your cardinals. My pt. was exactly on your answer 2. Even in well established, well maintained tanks, I have seen Cardinals mostly hiding or playing around in the foliage. So I was wondering if they'll be comfortable in a sparingly covered tank (compared to the grass). It was more of a question to really know if they can be peaceful here. Thanks to you, I know, they can!
