This 'scape has run its course and I'm planning to tear it down in the coming days. There's a number of lessons I have learnt from this attempt which I plan to take into the next and I plan on reusing most of the plants currently in there but with some additions. What those additions are I am yet to decide.
I'll be adding a few more bits of rock in the new scape and and building up an area of substrate with some Tesco cat litter which I have laying around tied in the wife's tights and then topped with Unipac Limpopo sand.
I took this video last night which will be the last I take of the tank in this setup. I'll be sure to write a new journal once i have it figured out.
