    "Dutch something or the other" 120 Gal

    This is great. Starts to look like a beautiful reef tank with lots of corals. 8) Never thought I can have that feeling with freshwater tank colors. :)

    Re: 120 x 55 x 55 Iwawoody. Wow, impressive Mark :clap: (I just love the hardscape!) It will certainly be quite a setup. I do not see a problem with using a lot of plants as most of them here are carpeting or small growing ones. Using these together might help improve the natural look. Btw...

    Re: GA in-store display 120P Iwagumi We have one 2 kg bottle powering all three nano-s with T-branches and needle valves dividing the gas... We had to mess around a lot to keep them steady, actually killing two Festo needle valves in the process. Turned out they were not very happy with the...

    Re: GA in-store display 120P Iwagumi I've been long telling my friends to get some red neon tetras for this tank. ;) They will look lovely later if we switch on the last two remaining Sylvania GroLux pinkish tubes that you can see missing from the reflection on the first picture. It will...

    GA in-store display 120P Iwagumi - Fly above the giant cliff

    Re: GA in-store display 120P Iwagumi Issues with AM1000 are these: 1. Due to the 9-12-16 mm decreasing size of its ends, if you plug it to a 16/22 hose it is advisable to cut the narrowing ends to keep the flow, so you basically keep only the 16/22 diameter on both ends of the reactor. 2. You...

    Re: "Prairie Lands"...The return Are you sure Mate? Your FG looks like Lilaeopsis Brasiliensis to me. So it made me suspicios over the Tenellus thing, and I came over this image, which - if I can read right - says you have Lilaeopsis... ;) :crazy: :shock: :D

    You guys have achieved so much in such a short time. I guess the UKAPS has reached to a point where all (!) the biological, technical and spiritual info is present. Many have reached a level of true aquascaping professionalism here and they just do not know how to continue. It's natural. Like...

    Shrimp Tank - Juwel Rekord 60

    The spotless health of you plants always amazes me Paulo. Great tank you've got there Mate! Is that Anubias Petite in the middle of your last image? I've seen some at Interzoo, they look really fabulous. Great FG "spotting" plant or transition plant... And what happened to the Staurogyne?

    Tonys 'Peacocks Crypt' - The End

    Re: Tonsers 200L Optiwhite Why did you use the lens at the 70mm end? Did you aim for a strong 2D experience? My take - speculation really - is that it really helps the surreal impression of this particular super-clean scape that you accentuated the 2D feeling and avoided "bringing us into the...

    Sorry to hear about your Cardinals. Did you change anything in the tank maintenance regime? They were fine for months. I did not see you mention it anywhere - do you use CO2 in your tank? I guess not.
