This is one of my favourite aquascapes of all time. The whole process was thoroughly enjoyable, from getting wet and researching the biotope, to executing it in my aquarium. All the decor, plants and fish you see here are very similar to what I experienced in the lake, that's about 10 miles from my house. The branches were collected from the lake. Elodea and hairgrass were growing in the lake, amongst sand, leaves, stones and rocks, just like you see. I remember phoning Dan Crawford on the day I did this. Apparently he was literally just chatting to fellow UKAPS members and they were saying how a UK biotope needs to be done... Here you go!
