NeilW said:I still love this tank, its just so lush and green! Lots of interest in it too with lots of different things to look at.
rawr said:This is one of the most beautiful and more importantly natural Aquascapes on here, well done you should be proud!
paul.in.kendal said:Yep, I think it's fab, too. So much detail and variety in just 60 litres of water! I'd be burning the dinner all the time if I had a beautiful distraction like that in the kitchen.
andyh said:Cheers Paul, i do get told off regularly for staring into the tank instead of doing the dishes! and remember this is my first planted tank, yours will get to this to!
George Farmer said:Congratulations, Andy!
This aquascape and its wonderful journal are one of the biggest success stories on UKAPS.
You have shown us all what can be done with the right investment in research, time, and hardware.
George Farmer said:Will you be keeping this going much longer, or do have a plan for a new 'scape yet? 5 months is very good going in a high energy set-up like this. Testament to your dedication and focus.
You must have learnt an incredible amount through this one 'scape (hard to believe it's your first!) and if you do a re-scape you have plenty of plants to choose from in there.
George Farmer said:If I may be so bold, for me it is starting to look a little too wild and overgrown, almost becoming a victim of its own success; for me there is no real focal point. However, I do understand that the natural-look is very appealing too and it does look much better post-prune.
Well done and keep up the great work!
Well, if you want to prove you can keep this going long-term then go for it. Some minor plant movements, pruning sessions, even the odd hardscape change can give you an entirely new look with minimal fuss.andyh said:Any ideas George?
Vito said:Hey andy the tank is looking great, I now have an inline diffuser and I was wondering how often do you clean yours and how.
chilled84 said:In relation to your defuser. Have you used any other kind before? I have just (finaly) got myself presurised co2 and am useing the supplied spiral reactor supplied by jbl. wich one would you think is the better method for administering co2 into my water columbe. my spiral reactor or your defuser?
NeilW said:Hey Andy, just enquiring as to how your rhinogobius get on with your CRS? Any shrimp baby eating, or are they pure algae eaters? Do you think one would be alright for my 15 litre nano?
flun said:This lurker wants to thank you for a splendid journal Since long added to the list of favourites!
Hope your next one will be as good! good luck
AdAndrews said:Have to been down to MA @ shirley lately? do they still stock the gobies? and how much did you say they were again?
NeilW said:Shame to see this one go. Out of curiosity would it be possible to keep a high tech set-up running over years? Is it just that it ends up being a beast to control with the accelerated growth which means you would be hacking it back and replanting all the time?
Any preview ideas for your new scape?
