Amazing hardscape!
Might I suggest using a little Utricularia graminifolia, it has a tendency to grow in a "flowing"
pattern which I think would suit this aquascape well.

Thanks for the suggestion and i thought of that too but i've grown it before and i think i'll be a bit big for this tank, it was too big when i used it before and thats why i scrapped it. I've got a little bit left and may give it a go, i'm going to be trying all sorts LOL

Woop woop. Some times your just plain and simply happy about putting your name to something. Me and Dan got way to excited about doing this. Dans face when I positioned the small peices of wood and the pebbles was worth taking a picture of.lol
Its down to Danny boy to plant this up like a true artist, easy peasy Lionel squeezy. 8)
Sweet little nano.
Its not the size of the ship, but the motion of the ocean....lol

Glad you lot are getting as excited as me and my Pal where.

FIltration: Fluval 105 with Cal Aqua pipe work.

Any thoughts and critiques welcome.

Cheers, Dan.

Are you sure about using glass, Dan? I reckon some nice green plastic pipework would be much better. :lol:

Dave.

It almost seems a shame to put any plant in there!
Thats what I was thinking too!! Some nice Sulawesi Cardinal Shrimp and Sulawesi Snails in there and it would be a perfect home for them.

Sweet,those shrimp are very very nice. Where did you get them from?
Snails look cool too. I wonder how macro those shots are though.Can you see all that detail with the naked eye?

Im sure dan has his own ideas though.
