    10L inspiration

    It is indeed. I came second in the competition but it all came down to facebook likes over the quality of the scape (my scape was rubbish compared to the standards on here!) However the two runners up still got £20 worth of aps vouchers on top of the tank that id won getting to the final stages.

    New Tank Cycling / Bacteria

    IMO most bacteria is pretty useless for cycling tanks. you are always best cycling them with ammonia. However some of the discus fanatics swear by biozym which they claim to be very effective.......I have not had experience with it but i prefer to do things the old fashioned way! ;)

    Is it Algae or ?

    Try reducing the lighting by two hours and increasing co2 in normal conditions you want the co2 to be a lime green. As yoube got no livestock bump it upto a light yellow :)

    Is it Algae or ?

    more information on the lighting could prove useful, however 8 hours seems a long time for a new tank, I usually start on 6. Also, what is your water change regime? you will need to do a lot more water changes in the first few weeks. Finally I cannot see any livestock in there it may be...

    Manzanita Wood

    As people have stated you can get it from tom barr over from the us. the cost works out at around £150 a box including shipping but they are big boxes.

    where to buy plants

    Best option is to pop in to your local p@h and ask them what days they get plants delivered. they are usually in great condition if you get them on the day. apart from that the green machine have an online store with superb quality plants

    couple of trial shots on manual...

    Excellent! its great to see people learning how to use a camera properly. what camera is it if you dont mind me asking? My two cents...... Tom is spot on with his advice, If you dont mind spending some money I would strongly look into a "going digital - get off auto" photography day lesson...

    Heater question.

    set it another degree or two higher :) i have a high tech led one that tells you if the tank is too cold or too hot or not enough flow and even that is never that accurate
