It's what you like not what I like mate. I'll wait till it's planted, it does look a little confusing at first though as it's not the usual kind of scape you see and there's no definite focal point.

not much to look at really, most are superglued on, except the largest hence why it is looking messy.
thanks.

in a way i want to go against the "rules" of aquascaping, once planted i am sure everyone will realise what i am trying to achieve.

i managed to break the pump :oops: I took it apart for cleaning and when i fixed it back together, the pole that runs through the centre didnt go back into the tip of the pump correctly. Turned it on & snap. Tries uperglueing it but no good, but anyway i have another coming off ebay :rolleyes: That picture shows a metal pole which should be a bit more fool proof lol.

thanks everyone.

just about everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong today :(
replacement for filter still leaks, wood falling over, superglue everywhere, even on the light. Dont ask lol. No plants, cant get through to customer services... the list goes on.
These are the days that make you want to give up, i have been going since 10.30 this morning, and just filling the tank back up! A 30min job of replacing the filter this morning should of been it.

Hang on in there, Aaron.

We all have our bad days when events seem to conspire against us.

Stick at it and in a few days you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.

Thanks guys,
Yes they are Aquafleur plants through MA, i am sort of glad they havent come because of the filter, i am starting to notice some staghorn growing on the anubias aswell, they have done well to survive a week without anything except 2hrs of lighting and a dose of Nutrients :) so not as bad as i thought they would get.
Thanks.

I got some of the plants today - wendtii & beckettii, and also lilaeopsis novea-zealandiae. I also got some frogbit.
Parva wasnt on the list (tropica only species probably), the tenellus didnt come for some reason, and the balansae was out of stock but they are ordering it in again for me :)
I planted all what i had, except 2 pots of wendtii "green" so they are for sale if anyone wants them.
Here are a couple of pics, with a full tank shot later tonight, as it is just filling up.
Also tetratec ar sending me a motorhead out :D
thanks for looking and everyones support :)
Aaron.

excuse the spelling mistake on wendtii :lol:

This is slowly progressing and I can see it turning into something real nice! It should be nice seeing it evolve.
