It amazing how quickly you can go over budget especially once you start looking into lighting. Looking at those beautiful blue panda shrimp will take you over strait away:D I'. Love some of them.

My wife's not getting her ps4 until she gives into the 50"led tv:D I could be pushing it a bit all the tanks I've had this year. :(

I did this last time, it's annoying though when you can't create anything, isn't it!

You'll get there though, but being on a budget will limit the hardscape material you have to hand.

lovely piece of wood looks great only thing I would think about is burying the left stone more into substrate or maybe removing it altogether so none on left and swapping with right one but let us know what you decide mate

I struggle with my hardscape to the easiest way I found was to decide what plants you want, then you have an idea of how they grow, tall, short, bushy etc that way you decide where in the tank a specific plant is going once you decide that its so much easier to place the hardscape, atleast thats the only way it works for me :)
