  1. Well I was going to wait until this tank was sorted out properly, like better Java Fern, more established moss etc, but I couldn't! :rolleyes: I'm really pleased with the rocks, and will probably use the same layout for my next design, just changing planting and stuff. Having said that, fire away with any criticism! ;)

    So here it is:

    Mmmm nice :lol:
     
  5. :lol: It's actually a grey-blue (if that's any better!), but there's a flash and tank lighting on it. I think I'll have to invest in a white sheet for the next set of pics though ;)

    white would look cool but whatever colour you choose thats a fantastic scape mate, the more i look at it the more i like it...nice job :D
     
  7. Thanks :D It's still fairly new, so I'm hoping the Java Fern can fill out a lot more at the back. I was thinking about some Crypt balansae at the back left going over the surface but not really sure.

    Great composition early on, Tom. It's very nicely done.

    Will only get better too - you must be excited!

    It's got fantastic structure, love the contrast of the sand with rocks. It's almost a shame to put plants in it....

    :oops:
    Did I really say that?
     
  18. I know what you mean. At some point I'm going to get a shallow tank (24"x15"x2"H) and just have rocks and sand. No water or anything :D
     
  19. Ok I've attached my new nano lily pipes now, and have a Fluval 105 instead of an elite mini :D Added some of the plants Dan gave me too.
