    The Island - ADA 75P - Tropica Feature results

    This has been a few months coming after my barn find of a tank earlier this year, so I’ve been playing with ideas and stockpiling hardscape since and waiting till I had more time to get this set up. A return to high tech and my first proper attempt at a fairly high light tank. Tank – ADA 75P...

    Rivers Edge - ADA 45P - planted and filled

    After initially having my halfmoon rosetail betta in his own tank and moving him to a peaceful community tank I've decided while he seems happy, he definitely enjoyed being on his own more so this will be tailored to him, plus it satisfies my MTS.... Simple low tech mini jungle theme with...

    James Shallow Build

    Here is my diy shallow tank, it has the same dimensions as the ADA 60-F except it's made from acrylic and only cost just over £20 to make. Initial thoughts are that this is going to be low tech with a carpet of lilaeopsis brasiliensis covering most of the tank. Not sure what's going to go up...

    James' 4ft Rainbow Refuge

    Hi all, A relative was going to bin this tank, so I took it on. Didn't want to spend too much money so built the stand out of concrete blocks and plywood. The sides and back were painted black apart from one chunk of the back pane for some reason, so I decided to paint that bit myself rather...

    The Celestial Swamp - A voyage through a flooded forest fringe (Shallow Riparium)

    Well one year into planted tanks, I felt that I had to build a riparium after seeing some spectacular examples over the years by people on both sides of the pond... My first attempt has been very successful and has been a great learning experience, but it's diminutive size is lacking in the awe...

    Angel delight mark 2

    So here is my new project. Juwel Rio 240. Substrate so far is play sand, a bit of cat litter and a bit of columbo florabase. Hardscape is my lovely manzanita, and some seiryu stone. Didn't have as much rock as I wanted ideally, but one bit is being used to weight down the big bit of manzy. All...

    George's Hillside (new Signature layout)

    Hi all, I've recently re-scaped my TMC Signature so I thought I'd start a new journal on here. Not really a groundbreaking aquascape - re-using the moss-covered Manzi from my previous two layouts that you can see here - George's TMC Signature | Page 38 | UK Aquatic Plant Society Specs -...

    Tonys "Mojito's Cove" 200L - 4 week update pics

    This is a new scape I've just done to replace "Horatios Cave" which has now been stripped down. The scape is sponsored by Tropica, who kindly supplied the plants. For some time I've wanted to do a scape with Seiryu Stone and Manzanita Wood, with a sand foreground and centre section, so this...

    George's TMC Signature

    Hi all, I'm really excited to be aquascaping again for the first time since May last year. I have a TMC Signature 60x45x30cm (clear silicone) with gloss white cabinet. I need to cut out a half moon in the cabinet side for the filter hoses because unfortunately they're not pre-cut. I did...
