Do you ever get bored with your tanks layout and think i could improve? There is always room for improvement yes, but do you ever sit back and think wow, what a good scape i might keep this for as long as possible. Or is it just me that thinks that as i have not yet produced a good one? :oops: :lol:

Thanks,

only when i look at some of the scapes on this site. it's still early days for me, learning curves and all things related etc... but the one thing that inspires me at the minute is the sense of excitement that i get when i think about producing a new scape. i'll never get bored of this hobby purely because it's an endless string of scapes, some good some bad.

im still trying to convince my wife that spending £30 or 40 on rocks is a good thing in her life :lol: cor blimey, she'd kill me if she knew i spent £6 per kilo on stone while she was away (says trembling)

the day i sit back and say "what a great scape" is the day i'll pack the hobby in.

BTW good post aaron, as usual ;)

Thats what i love, no2 tanks will ever be the same.

I suppose she will never ask, nobody would know a rock would cost that much :lol:

If I had a tank like yous LD the last thing I would be doing is hating it, your tank has always been a favourite of mine on here. If you hate it so much you could always give it to me :p :lol:

Thanks mate, but seriously its becoming an eyesore!!! also getting some algae, my 2224 is crap and the internal just about had it, might go for the Tetratec EX1200 since its the cheapest option, don't really want to spend too much on the tank (wanna get a car soon).

I've been happy with most of my efforts but know there's always room for improvement. I think my weakest area is composition. Growing algae-free plants is the easy part.
