    Thanks mate! I'm about to close down the edible scape so I can do another one but need to think of some ideas!

    It's been a while...

    Welcome back from your holibobs! 😁 Just a bit of this and that, and oh you know, slowly turning my dining room into a gallery...

    Tidy Jungle II

    Thank you Wooki, I think you hit the nail on the head! I'm far too modest for my own good sometimes 😅 Like you said, I feel like the videos really capture the essence of the scapes much better than stills can. I'm very appreciative to have been able to share it with you all. I didn't create...

    Pico Pond

    Just an update on the Pico Pond II Everything is growing really well, especially as it's only been 6 weeks. This was a very inexpensive build (with the exception of the lights). I really recommend it to anyone who wants a slice of nature in their home without the need for a filter!

    It's really really nice. Also great that it maintains good colour even with 'meh' lighting. Thank you Rosie! It was such a fun day and great to show what's been keeping me busy for the last 6 months!

    Tidy Jungle II

    15th August 2021: The scape is doing pretty well, and it's developed a shape that I'm happy with and maintaining. I even had a batch of apistogramma fry reach free swimming stage, and there are some survivors hiding away now they've separated from Mum. Just shows what can happen in regular tap...

    Back to T5, mistake ?

    I use T5 lights on my biggest aquarium and it grows plants pretty well. My only complaint is the heat generated but otherwise they're good!

    Like ecoustic foam?

    Oase biomaster 850 Pros / cons

    I'm wondering too as my 850 is quite audible and drawing in some form of gas (I'm not using a surface skimmer).

    The Edible Scape

    17th August: The first iteration of Edible Scapes is complete! What an experiment it's been. Short and sharp but it has helped to improve my horticultural, aquascaping and photography skills all at once! Can't argue with that. From a design perspective, I'd say I'm 90% happy with it, but from...

    Tidy Jungle II

    Thanks Natalie! I was definitely going for drama with this scape. It was originally a 'centrepiece' aquarium if you like but now it's just for me. 😁 Thank you!
