Hi, new to this forum 😊.Second attempt at a scape. Around 10 months old, Made lots of changes along the way I'm sure as we all do.
EA Aquascaper 900 - Twinstar 900E
Low tech setup/easy plants. Tropica tabs in innert sand.
No co2 input this time round.
Truth be told.. water changes.about every 2 weeks 😅.
Thanks for looking!

Thanks! It's called Black Mountain Rock. I got it from a garden centre 😅 Those two large ones on the left were 2 for £9 😄. It's fish friendly. Much cheaper.
Proper aquascaping rocks like dragon stone/seiryu stone can be pricy given they're £'s per kg.

Hi, very nice tank indeed 😊
I have some vallisneria in my 20 litre tank, but it grows and grows and can’t grow that tall like yours. It’s a dirted tank, Walstad method. My crypt is already perking up but not my vallis.

Thanks Paul. Yeah they don't actively hunt the shrimp. They'll give chase if a shrimp decides to dart like the flash 😄. But the cherry's breed fine anyway

Thanks cherries, yeah to be honest it was added at a later date. The background was empty originally. I'm surprised with the growth/runners
As I've only used Tropica capsules.
