my lad is 3 almost 4. i had my 60cm sat in the corner with a box of stone wood and substarte. i put the substarte in and left it. last night i let my little boy have a go at scaping and this is what he came up with.
ABSALUTLEY NO help from me, apart from adding the substarte.
So, it's time to get the 120cm out again, but the difference being, it's in someone else's house. my Aunty and uncles to be precise.
it's literally 2 minutes from me, so i can treat the tank as if it were my own. it's an impressive house, so i couldn't resist persuading them to have a 4 footer...
Well, my tank is here at last and im most pleased with it.
Its a 90x45x45cm optiwhite on a metalika stand from Aquariums Ltd. Had a wee problem with the original tank which was sorted with no problems by Ray at AQ and to say im happy with it is an understatement. The silicon on these tanks is...

Just thought I would post a few photos of my Juwel Rio 125.
I haven't been in the planted scene for too long, I have really started using real plants in the past 9 months, was using mainly plastic before.
Started reading the various forums on the web and also asked a lot of...
I'm collecting everything i need for an up and coming journal in my 60cm.
A change in substrate, is exciting.(thanks to Aquajardin :thumbup: ) I've used ADA in the past with tremendous results, I'm itching to get this into a tank :D
The [IWAGUMI] Project Scree aquascape has evolved after almost 7 months with the original plant layout.

Ehehei 777th Journal :)
That is what we have managed to do during LFKC meet on Sunday.
Huge thanks to all the guys for coming and helping with the hardscape. This would not look as it does without your help and advice.
Initially plans were very different but i am very happy how this turned out...
Llyn Peninsula (below) was stripped down this week with much regret but I wanted to have a go of using the black lava rock I picked up from a local quarry a while back.

Lots of prep...
Hi Guys, has some might be aware sometime ago decided to setup a shrimp only tank to see if I could breed some cherries and hopefully one day some decent Crystal Reds.
The Tank has been up and running for about a month and since over the past week I have noticed loads of little Cherries on my...
Hi, this is going to be a loooooooooong planning...
Some of you have seen my recent topic about bottom drilled tanks. Originally i wanted to go for 370L bottom drilled but decided that its a little to big and i dont have enough experience to pull it out yet and that its better to go for...
I thought i'd have a mess around with some hardscape this afternoon, ready for my new scape. The old scape will be shut down next week and i'm away on holiday for a week. I will have my plants on order over the week when i'm away and will be planting on the Friday when i get back. I have the...
Inspired by a recent mountaineering expedition to Snowdonia.
This is my third attempt at an Iwagumi, and I think it has potential. I think it's the strongest use of hardscape I've used in any design so far.
This dry run with the hardscape has been set up in a 60x30x30cm, but I will be...
Right, thought it was about time I finally start my journal especially after a few people pushing me to start it up. Brownie points to the first person to guess why I chose the name for the journal ( those who know are excluded).
Having had so much fun running high tech, there was one tank...
I dont know what to call it, its too early and i think I will only get a real feel of where it is going when im in the tank, bruising my fingers and getting angry at the tree stumps. Hopefully I wont get too frustrated about it and it will manifest itself with ease... hmm.
***WARNING*** This journal is likely to contain any, some or all of the following: mud, dirty glass, terrible typing, horrible crawly things, really boring fish, algae, piles of rotting crap, bad photography, drunken ramblings, non-existent aquascaping, total disaster and complete disregard for...
Following on from this last scape which to be honest got too grown in.
