i picked this up last saturday, the day before a trip to tgm to see george farmers aquascape demonstration. i've been working on setting up a 180 liter corner aquarium, but i never was particularly happy with hideous georgian (not farmer) style cabinet and trim, plus i wanted a few extra liters. it cost he same as the trigon 350 and fluval venezia 350 which i know are better quality, but i just fell for the minimalism of this discontinued tank.
i've kept planted tanks for 20 years now (apart from a few brief periods when it has been impossible due to circumstances), but have always been a dennerle devotee, but please don't hold that against me.
i have also fairly recently reset-up a tropica aquacube and a set up a new 30 liter dennerle nano cube, during which, while studying the internet, i came across this forum that has now changed my outlook, and caused me to re-write my history books!
as you can see the aquacube has developed bga over the last week or so, but i'm ready to re-fit this weekend with a different substrate other than plain sand. in the nano cube, the hc and p helferi are recovering from what i'm (and people on this forum) pretty certain was no3 deficiency.
as you will probably also have noticed, i'm not an aquascaper (the only artistic streak i have in me is of the liquid refreshment variety), so there really isn't much point in telling me "left a bit, 66% etc...." i just love aquatic plants and underwater gardening!
right back to the task in hand......
and back home another 230 quid lighter!
just testing as to whether i bought enough substate or not!
the first modification (butchery) to the hood, get rid of that crappy built in wet and dry filter!
loading the ammo!
second mod to the hood, get rid of the equally as crappy t8's!
next installment after the weekend!!!
