    Dark Land (300l) - Now with FTS of the first days.

    Hi Pedro, Another great looking tank. The detail in it is amazing. Congratulations! I was wondering about the silicon you use. I was thinking to do something similar for an upcoming scape. Do you find it easy to remove when you break down the scape? CD

    And I've just seen that Takeshi Amano has died. What a shock and a real shame. Aquascaping genius aside he seemed like a pretty nice and interesting guy. His personal tank was the first scape I can recall seeing and what inspired me to do this hobby. It's still my favourite now. Goodbye Mr...

    Cheers chap! Thanks Alexander! Yeah they look pretty spot on. Well done. I'm going to go with the Arcuata on my description just because aquatic plant central says it is sold more widely. CD

    A couple of weeks have past since my last update and there's been a couple of significant changes. Here's a shot of the tank at week 7 (just before a hair cut for the Monte Carlo): I experimented with my camera set to vibrant which is why the colours are popping. You can see I added in a few...

    TOYS!!!! :D Looking forward to seeing this in action. Tried building my own a while ago using a small water pump but never got near it working.

    Sorry to hear that old chap. It's the worst when you're not sure why.

    Green Pekoe Pond - 40 litres

    Hi Mr Teapot, I'm not really familiar with salty tanks. What is that pipe contraption on top of the tank? Is that the inflow/outflow? Looks crazy (and probably a bit of a filth magnet)!

    Here’s a 6 week update. (Apologies for the grainy image. I’ve done something to my camera settings. Possibly ISO?) There’s not an amazing change in the overall look but everything in the tank has stabilised again and is looking healthy. There’s been no more melt and a fair amount of new...

    Since my nightmare last week, things in the tank have calmed somewhat. Initially the Ludwigia joined the party and shed a few leaves. I also noticed some transparency on the leaves of the Hygrophilia Siamensis. However, the reduction of photoperiod and the lengthening of the co2 period seems to...

    Thanks Sarpijk. Alto, thanks and thanks for the tips. Hopefully though I won't have to use them in future but maybe wishful thinking. This time though I didn't even get a chance to rescue them. I was at work. By the time I got home they were very very dead. I'm guessing it must have happened...

    So it would appear there is in fact a god of planted tanks. And I have royally p***ed him off! On Tuesday I was arrogant enough to say that I had two keys to success and that keeping planted tanks would be easy from here on in. Oh the hubris! Well someone or something, disagreed with me… big...
