    Thanks, John!

    Not sure where I find the time either.

    I'm actually off to bed now (it's only 9pm) - I'm knackered!

    Sweet little tank George

    The equipment looks great in the tank, one of the best equipped nanos I have seen.

    It will look fab when its finished.

    Like the hardscape as well ;)

    hmmm now what could that plant be, a moss, a mini fissidens maybe?? next May, so long away..................

    I love the glass ware you have in the nano, they fit perfectly. Nice rocks too.

    I can't wait to see this new plant. If it contends with the likes of HC, UG or downoi then I'll sure be getting my hands on it as soon as it is released.

    Looks good already, especially the downoi between the rocks which is in a very healthy condition. Should be great to see mature.

    Hmm, seeing as the space is at the back I'm guessing the mystery plant might be quite a high growing foreground plant, but I know you wont give anything away.

    I also love all the glass wear you have in there, in fact I might get the same stuff for my nano.

    Nice, like the way the PH seems to be growing out of cracks in the rocks, very natural looking.

    Looks like the mystery plant is a background one.

    I might actually try HC and Donoi when I set my nano up, I like dwarf hairgrass but it looks a bit messy sometimes.

    Not yet mate. I'm running high CO2 and Excel ATM to boost growth and hopefully keep algae at bay due to low plant bio-mass.

    Thanks guys.

    It gets better! I can't wait to see how it comes out. I can't wait for this new background plant, it's still such a long wait!

    Hi mate

    Unfortunately I cannot make the Interzoo now, due to my full-time job (I'll be in the USA). Pass on my regards to the Tropica guys when you see them.

    The tank is coming along very nicely. The HC is carpeting really well with no die off or algae. The 'secret' plant is doing well to but has a little brown algae that some otos and shrimp will clear off in an hour or so, once I've figured out a safe CO2 level...

    I have some very special little fish planned, that I've never seen before. That will be another surprise for when I reveal the whole aquascape in May.

    Dan Crawford and Jeremy Gay saw this tank over the weekend. Maybe they'll give you an idea how it looks, without giving too much away...
