It is a great looking tank. Plants look very healthy. Is it still looking as great as it did then? Going strong.

Cheers Lee..

It's a little overgrown to be honest Lee, it's not a great tank to work in as you have to either use a small hatch on top or dissemble the whole top and filter. I'm setting up some new tanks a couple of weeks from now, rehoming the fish and getting rid of this particular tank. It was a lovely scape for a good while though, enjoyed it

Shame... such a great looking tank!! Also great inspiration for people entering the hobby that you can achieve 'the look with low tech. Keep us posted on your new tanks :)

Thank you also for adding list of the things you used. I’m having a go at my first tank so trying to learn fast and not kill everything. Clearly you're very good at this and know what works. Really appreciate it. It’s inspiring
