Just thought i'd share a few shots of my overgrown tank, which i stripped down, and rescaped for a new journal over the Easter weekend.

The tank is an Akva-Stabil Effect-line 720 litre, but more details will follow in the journal.

I did also remove a substantial amount of gravel, and believe it or not, there is 25kg of mini landscape rock in there too. :D

It took me about a day to strip all the pants out, seperating different stems etc into different garden tubs, and buckets. Then i removed some of the access gravel, changed the poly filters to clean up the tank. Also done a few scapes.

Next day, rescaped again, then started planting, cutting roots, the glosso hasn't been finished yet, will redo this when i get some free time.

This is original scape for the above pics, see, there were rocks.. :D

Hi,
Believe it or not, your tank looks bigger full of plants, than empty mate...

Cheers,

I like the wild look of the plants, never liked things too placed and un-natural. Keep us posted with some more photos :)
Great work, congrats
