    Led strip light ? If not affordable options for a rack suggestions please?

    It’s all made in China and we don’t have a trade deal! So you won’t be able to buy them in the uk :lol:

    Got my new (to me) filter, do I need to buy smaller spray bars?

    Is it better to have the spray bar submerged or could it be just above the water line, thus in a tank with a rim / lid the bar would not bee seen?

    Aquasoil path with carpet or sand? That is the question. What are the pros and cons of both?

    I am in 2 minds now. Shall I go down the sand path route, or soil the lot and (try) growing a carpet along the front and the middle? Like this

    carpeting guideline....I need to know.

    I’m not going to put fish in my tank for month. At present I have no fish so I’m in no rush. Just been testing some hardscspe layouts today with a cardboard box some potting compost and 20kg if rock. I am going to let tank cycle properly, then add a clean up crew - followed by a small Shoal of fish.

    carpeting guideline....I need to know.

    I am no expert but from reading this forum. Start with 6 hours light. Do dose the tank. Change at least 50 percent everyday for first week. 50 percent every other day week 2 Every 3 days week 3 Then once a week there after.

    Critique my hardscape Trying to mix different roots.

    The simple answer is if you leave them like that and fill the tank with water, needless to say it won’t be very interesting. However if you add two mounds of soil. Add a carpet at the front and say a Dutch style behind, then you have a nice tank! So the question is - what is your ambition? maybe...

    I personally love the scape and my first looks the same. Cliche path down the middle But the people I Impress are my friends and not aquascapers. I do agree you should smash up some rocks and had some content into the parth in the small episodes. Add features and textures and deaf plants and...

    Photo lots of refection

    The main problem you have is hard light. Simple you’re shining a torch beam in a tank you are always going to get turbo shadows. First step, soften your light then follow other steps to increase coverage. If you want more tips I can go into depth
