I’m praying not
Should be a good one. Thought it would sell fast and apparently sold out within 4 hours!
See you there Ryan :)
Theres one by me that Ill probably use for my shrimp tank. As above they were previously trade only so Im glad they've changed now.
Nick Chan at Aquarium Cabinet Solutions does some very nice custom tanks and stands
weird size on the 120cm - 1200mm x 530mm x 490mm
Add 50% bicarbonate of soda to the substrate mix. It reacts with the super glue and makes the join like concrete [emoji1303]
We've got malm in our house and knowing how they are built I absolutely wouldn't put anything heavy on them. They even tell you on the...
Just a little tip Dave when taking photos with the iPhone. If you put some card on the top lip of the tank and rest it on the light you’ll stop...
Thats pretty rubbish service from them. tbh with that tissue paper it looks to me like you've been sent a shop display/second hand unit?
are they ever going to hit the market?
And safety glasses
Big hammer and rock in a bag so it doesn’t explode everywhere
Lovely hardscape and the plants have filled in really well with it. The Hue background looks great and its something Ive been wanting to try but...
Thanks. Might be a bit more difficult then as the lightstrip doesn't do 90 degree corners very well :( I might try a single side or 3 sides and...
Just to drag this one back up.
As there is no 120cm option for the ADA panel and Ive got a Phillips HUE lightstrip plus handy I was thinking of...
I’ve already done it! [emoji23]
Have you thought about getting some Ada hornwood from Tgm now it’s half price? You could probably fill a 60cm scape for a hundred quid at the...
Tom bar is in the US. Prices will vary depending on the size of box. I’ll have to look into the oase. Sounds like it has some good features
There is but it only becomes visible after so many posts. I’ll check with Paulo

You could contact Tom Barr directly on Facebook. He sells and ships big boxes of Manzi. You could probably make your money back by picking the...
They are closing the shop and business when it sells out of stock

Welcome back Dean. I am also back after a bit of an outage at home.
Currently designing a Dennelle scapers tank in my kitchen which Ill be...
Well. That’s your lot for Ada in the uk until (if ever) a new distributor is found. It’s Europe only after Tgm sell out their last stocks :(...
I’m not sure that the distribution company is closing. It’s just the shop
im popping in this week so Ill ask them if anything is staying open. They hold distribution for the UK through another company so if this closes...
Front looks nice but would benefit from more rocks to build it up
great photos Paulo. Lots of nice rock and uber cool lights :)
if you can afford it then get some aquasoil. Akadama is just too dusty in my opinion unless you are capping it.
Really like how that wood wraps around the rocks Tim :)
Before photo is a bit crap sorry as taken via Kessils.

Can't go wrong with these sponsors imo.
Should be fine to provide a circular route for the flow.
Where are you putting your outlet/inlet?
I would say increase as you've got a smooth flow around the outside of the tank
That looks really nice, will be a great tank
Pic doesn't show on tapatalk
Depends on how dense your stone is. E.g. Lava is lighter than seiryu so you'd get more. Also depends on how high you want to go in the tank and if...
Amazing scapes this year again.
Link here to judges comments of the top 27 -...
Innovative marine Sr-80. I'll be sticking a build thread up soon
The deadline for the AGA entry is tomorrow (sept 18th) so if you're thinking of entering then pop over there to register and get your scapes in!...
eg, this is from one of their posts so 6 euro per kg plus shipping
Materials: Ancient Stone
It was 50Kg for the 120cm but that won't be valid now. They were just starting out and have increased their prices since then. Their Facebook...
Yep thats the same people. Aquaman he goes by. I bought a complete hardscape but changed it was I was using wood.
I was a bit nervous about...
You'll need to check the ancient stone Facebook page as it depends on weight and postage as they ship from Poland. They have prices for arranged...
You'll never get manten cheap. Ancient stone is very similar but I think their price has gone up since I last bought some. Still cheaper than £10...
daft question but have you replaced the fluid in the drop checker as it can go off?
That's discus territory! Odd how there's no insulation as you'd think that would keep you cooler in the summer
Good to see you back Tom and looking forward to seeing your tank. Will you need a cooler there with those high temps?
Cheers Tim. Was hoping for a top 100 again (eventual aim is top 27) but dropped from last years 54 so gone backwards. Need to have a think about...
I'll be putting a build thread up soon
Some great works posted here. 335 for mine so not too good this year
Not many have used manten as you'd need to sell several kidneys. Don't think the stuff ae sells is manten as its more rounded. Should make a nice...
Got to be honest. If I see a thread entitled "Hi there" then I'm 99% sure thats a new member introducing themselves in the "New Members...
welcome along Ian. Lots of good advice and banter on here :)
if you can, get it in a big bucket of water now and flush it now and again until it goes into the tank. I tried akadama once and it was dusty as...
Eg from my current tank. Quick iPhone shots
I tend to bury the wood in the rock so it looks like the wood has grown through it. I find it looks more natural like this.
Impressive. Most impressive. :)
Looking forward to see this one running
Thats a beast and knowing EA's tanks the silicon will be perfect :)
Both of those would work great
Looks very nice. Smash that big right stone with a hammer and use the shards to build up the front edges. That gap on the front left needs some...
Soon I think :)
Thirder for the tropics soil due to no big ammonia release on startup
really like that :)
They'll be fine in the box in a cool room as long as they are shipping in good condition. Just give them a spray and seal the box
what settings are you using on the camera?
Can you see the lights above the tank through the lens? (if so try and fix it so you can't, i.e. flag...
Im coming :)
I think he meant the tattoos on the guy in the innovative marine video on the Sr-80 page.
I think I'll leave the tats! :)
freshwater planted. SR-80 with a rear sump and media basket for freshwater :) - http://innovative-marine.com/nuvo-aquarium/sr-80.html
Yep its down. Currently have an empty Innovative Marine from Nordic Reef UK which Im scaping this week :)
Yep there will be more photos put up soon
Thanks both. :)
Should have mentioned it got 13th on the eaplc 2015 too. Top ten next year :)
Thanks Mot, loving yours too :)
a detail shot of the tank
looks perfect! maybe a little moss tied to the wood and then trimmed when it grows would break up the woody part of the tank. Or maybe stick...
welcome along steve.
and don't forget that Mark was using his 135mm on a full frame body so it was actually 135mm. On your camera the Nikkor 135mm would be 202mm as I...

Hi and welcome. Stick a journal up for the DSM project. Would love to see how it turns out
Thanks, That tank was my IAPLC entry from 2012 and Im a new moderator from today with a bunch of others :)

perfect chance for a re-scape :)
stick em in a bucket and run your filter through it while you swap the tank with the retailer. Or better still...
take it back
looks amazing and Ill guess on a grand
Like bacms says. It's assumed you've got a pre seeded filter but if it's heavily planted it will kick in quicker. I used 5 bags on my 120 and it...
cracking video and nice to see the tanks close up and moving.
thanks for all the good wishes everyone. really pleased with my result this year...
Apologies. Thought this was the eaplc thread!!
It's a European only comp solcielo?
Results are up - http://www.iiac.com.tw/IIAC-2015.pdf
In case anyone hasn't spotted them the results of the French aquascaping contest were announced yesterday. Link below...
Im going to see if I can get down one of the days. Need to check the train times and prices :)
It's a Hozelock hose pipe with a tap connector one end and an inlet pipe on the other
Thanks all. Got my certificate yesterday so that's three in total now but sad to see no signature from Amano this year with him passing.
