    Hi everyone,

    I feel a bit embarrassed as I have been so quite for a very long time here at UKAPS...
    To fix that I decided to post couple of pictures of my most recent scapes:

    the 120:

    The Dennerle Scapers tank:

    Few close ups:

    Both tanks has been running for about a year now. Have been neglected many times, but endured :happy:
    Special thanks for the generosity and patience to Tropica and Living Aqua for sponsoring these scapes!

    A bit of an update on the large tank - it has been neglected for about 2 months due to other commitments and lost mojo... in this time it also suffered from a technical issue with the solenoid and the result was a great amount of all kinds of algae.
    Finally I have decided to sort it out. :angelic: Major maintenance, removing algae, plants, cleaning filters and glassware.

    When pressed for time: go low tech, everything slows down and the tank can be as beautifull as a high tech tank
