Well that's a beauty!

Love this hobby! It's even more rewarding now that the internet allows us to so readily share in the pleasure of each others works.
thanks chris, have to agree about the internet for sharing, also without the knowledge ive gained from ukaps not even sure i'd still be in the hobby.

i'm now finding the montecarlo lifts in a few places while i'm syphoning the carpet, reckon itll be time for a replant soon, not sure whether to replant the mc or mabe switch it out for tennelus, any opinions welcome, cheers for looking.

bit of an overgrown mess again :) monte carlo is lifting now when i syphon the carpet, everything needs thinning to allow some flow back through the plants, so i'll be giving the tank some heavy duty maintenance and replanting next weekend, thread algae has all but disappeared, i have a small patch of BGA on the front substrate line hopefully get that cleaned up next weekend,
thanks for looking.

Looks fantastic :).
Thank you Neil
Looks great Tim. Is it microsorum Pteropus petite that's high up on the branches?
Thanks John, yes it's the petite Java fern from aquarium gardens, I've slowly been separating plants to add to the wood as a replacement for the weeping moss.

Awesome! You may say overgrown, but I love it. The ranunculus looks brilliant with the hydro. :)
Thanks Berlioz, the ranunculus, hydro Japan and penthorium sedoides is a lovey mix that I'll be using in future scapes, hydro Japan needs some taming though it's made its way all around the tank even in amongst the stems at the back :lol:
