Alright Rob,

Looks Boss your Tank! I like the High Grass plants you've got. Think I bought some of them for mine but their not as healthy as yours yet! LOL

Yano the carpet plant you've got. Does it grow on gravel too? And will it grow over rocks i.e Slate and large pebbles?

Found some stuff called Flame Moss on the internet that looks Well Smart!! Would that have to be ordered from a specialist?

Thanks again for the Help with my Tank and for the heads up on this website!!
Much Appreciated. :D
Nick

Cheers nick yeh its not looking to bad done abit of work on it over the past couple of weeks so ill post some new pics tommorrow. The carpeting plant wouldnt grow to well in yours because it needs brighter light especially with the depth of your tank aswell.
Its not a problem mate thats what im there for. ive put a post on your forum aswell mate.

Hi Jonesy the reason for the blyxa dying of was i had not trimmed it and it had started to pull the roots up and they had then dyed of. its been planted now for a little bit and its growing fine. ive heard stories of it dying of when being moved but mine got trimmed and put back in and it was fine. In the tank i have in work it was dying of from being transported but its started to grow back now. Rob

Hi Rob

It's Stephen, thanks for giving me the link to UKAPS, your tank is really good, very pleasing to the eye.. :clap:

I set up my CO2 kit last night and got it all working fine, got the buble counter set to 10 bubbles per minuite for now and will see how it goes for a few days. I also put it on a timer along with my two lights. The CO2 will come on half an hour before the lights do and go off half an hour before the lights.

Now that my angel has gone, i will be able to take out my only exsisitng plastic plant out of the tank and will need to have a new think about my layout and where to put my new plants..

Will hopefully post a few pics soon. :D

Stephen
