    thanks clive, ive learnt soooo much from this setup. trimming being no.1 or lack of it! i started trimming too late. i'd never grown glosso untill this tank and i tghought you just left it to grow :oops:
    until i was advised to trim.

    after my wife comes bach from her 2 month trip(next week, she hasnt seen it likr this, she thinks i cant grow plants)i will either re plant the glosso, or just do a new aquascape :D not sure yet.

    haha yeah I started trimming it too late, I blame the late delivery of the UKAPS tool kit and still no curved scissors :p

    Superb scape :) I think you learn something every time to try a new scape and/or plants. I find its only by growing the plant myself can I work out exactly how it will behave (or not! ;)) in the tank.

    Keep us posted.

    Lovely tank Mark, looks almost other worldly.

    What sort of rock is that?

    cheers mate.

    the rock is slate! it has a slight green tinge to it. its ok, but not for a nature aquarium setup TBH. i wont be using it again.
