10l of JBL in, i have made an island shape with it so that you cannot see the 2 substrate lines at the front of the glass - much neater ;)

with the wood as it is I'm intrigued to see what you have in mind with the planting. :D

cant wait mate

i thought you might say that :p I decided against the more common theme of having a sculpture? like yourself had in the Miracle Mire, and it all pointing one way like my last tank and George did it in the crypt only tank as a better example. I shall still be having crypts, grasses & ferns in, but just trying a different approach regarding hardscape positioning.. :D

similar to Williams tank

Thanks everyone. :D

Ok, here is what i think my final plant list is going to be, with a bit of help from Mark
from aquafleur:

6 x C.Balansae
5 x C.Wendtii
5 x C.Beckettii
5 x C.Parva
10 x E.Tenellus

I shall be taking in a list tommorow, then hopefully hey will be ordered Sunday, to be delivered next Wednesday! :D

Also to go on is
M.Pteropus "narrow"
Staurogyne sp.
Anubias var.Barteri Nana

The last few are tropica, but i cant say on numbers as i am hopefully awaiting an answer on this thread Here

I might add some moss if anyone has some going spare too ;)

Thanks.
