It won't be for a while I'm afraid.
When we're allowed to open then yes social distancing rules will be in place. We're in quite a tight space, especially when the shop is busy, so its important to follow all the social distancing advice.
Thanks for all the kind comments :)
I'll work on an updated video as it has been a while. And because of the shops temporary closure it would be a good way to virtually walk around the showroom!
Hope everyone is keeping safe and well.
Thank you Surya for your review. The team here are pleased to hear your feedback.
I’m very happy that we’ve been able to help you with your CO2 and choosing your plants. The Java Fern will look great in your tank! :)
Thanks again for taking the time to write a review.
CO2 is inline so you can't see any diffuser in the tank. We are running 2 x inline CO2 Art diffusers, 1 on each filter. The CO2 mist comes out of each glass outlet.
The filters are the Oase Biomaster Thermo 600, 1 at each end of the tank.
Progress pictures taken last week. Very orange autumnal feel to it at the moment, pink and reds starting to show.
A few close ups of the plants health - particularly love this Hygrophila Pinnatifida in these pictures, very orange! Starting to go pink this week too, will update more next week...
It’s coming along really well Jay :thumbup:
Picture below was taken last week (about 6 weeks old) when some of the stems are just starting to colour up. I will take some proper pictures this weekend and post more angles and close ups :) more and more colour each day!

What amazing service you received from our team! Really appreciate your feedback, it means a lot to get feedback like that so thank you.
We hope you enjoy the new layout you chose for your tank :)
All the best.
Thanks so much for leaving a lovely review about your visit and experience. It was nice to meet you. You were well looked after by Steve :) The hardscape you went away with looked great!
Be nice to see how your scape it turns out. Let us know if you have any queries or need any...
S is stronger than the E version (E - 55W, 3800 lumen. S - 65W, 4900 lumen). S has more RGB leds for better colours of plants and fish. Lastly the brackets on the S are metal, E have clear acrylic brackets.
Thanks for your visit Pedro and great to meet you :) You get ultimate choice picking your plants directly in store.
Good luck with your dry start, it’s great for carpet plants and getting them going. Make sure you let some fresh air in each day and a small air gap for the rest of the time will...
Take a look at the nature collections - particularly if you’re using wood and rock in your layout as it includes plenty of plants for attaching to wood/rock. I’d recommend the 36” collection. More plants makes start up easier and less chance of algae...
Thanks for the great pics all!
It was the best day with a really lovely group of people including many from UKAPS which was great to see :)
Will be sure to post some updates as things progress - once those stems pop up at the back it will look amazing. Filipes fertilization system will be...
Thank you for your kind feedback. I'm pleased to hear you found your visit well worth the 200 mile round trip. The pleasure is all ours helping you with your scape.

It looks great Rachel you've positioned the wood really nicely :thumbup:
I can imagine lots of Bucephalandra and moss growing along that wood. Perhaps some ferns on the left side.
Let us know if you need any help choosing the plants :)

The brackets are detachable yes, however putting it under the hood may cause problems from condensation/water damage to the light unit. I am not sure?
The brackets are around 11cm tall and 10cm wide.
I agree the light has just one setting and not suitable for everything. It measures 50 par in an Aquascaper 600 at the bottom of the tank and therefore capable of growing most plants. However as you say, not suitable for every type of set-up. I would recommend them in CO2 tanks with...
