    Ultra minimal. Will be adding more emergent wood at some point.

    George's One-Pot Iwagumi Challenge

    Just looked at this thread and love the general cleanliness of the execution. Some questions for you; how do you go about picking your hardscape? Do you ever purchase online or always see in person? Do you have an idea in mind before your selection? Keep up the excellent work.

    Stem plants in the wabi kusa have been flowering over the last week :)

    Added some more emerged Anubias to improve the composition from the front. Just attached with freezer bag ties until they take hold.

    George's "Crystal Palace" - now with HD video

    Looks excellent George, those shrimp seem happy too. The red really contrasts well with the green and seems like a nice alternative to the usual 'ornamental' fish choices.

    FYI have found that ADA Phyton Git is very effective at keeping Anubias leaves looking fresh over time. Has also given great results on the big rock. I'm afraid I haven't got a link as I found the tip in an ADA product catalogue. I just drained the tank and used a small paintbrush (like the kind...

    Wabi in the kitchen getting there; Loving the Do!Aqua concept of keeping things achievable and low maintenance. Cheers all :)

    Introduced 5 Crystal Black Shrimp yesterday that came in the post from freshwatershrimp.co.uk. Great fast service. Only went for low grades this time as this isn't a specialist setup. I'll be honest and say stocking looks a bit odd at the moment and wouldn't mind some advice. I currently have...

    Thanks Tim. I think this will be a slow grower so my next update may be a while :D The beauty of being attached to hardscape is I can change it all if I'm feeling different!

    Thanks very much Dave. Heres another shot of the tank in situ next to my desk.

    Cheers Gary, I'm liking the contrast in textures in the emersed bit and tempted to add some more branch wood to build it up. Camera is an iPhone 5S, I really need a full DSLR but end up spending money on plants and nice hardware first :thumbdown:

    Simplicity - Neil's Mini S

    Inspired from ADA's Do!Aqua concept I wanted to go for a back to basics approach and concentrate on growing easy plants well in a nice simplified composition. I also wanted an emersed element to the tank. I also liked the idea of a modular scape that could be easily 'unassembled' to make...

    Small Pressurised Setup Recommendations?

    Are the thread sizes interchangeable on the JBL reg and welding bottle? May be a good cost effective solution. Empty cylinders are easy to safely dispose at a normal recycling centre?

    Small Pressurised Setup Recommendations?

    Cheers Tim, the 600g may be a little large but I'll try find some photos for scale. Where is the best place for refills? Are they disposable cylinders?
