Hi, Everyone

I decided to set-up a Planted Tank in the kitchen!
Aquarium.
Dennerle Scapers Tank 35 Litre.
Width 400 mm
Depth 320 mm
Height 280 mm
Lighting.
AZOO Flex - Mini Nano Led Black.
Co2 Equipment.
CO2 Stainless Steel Cylinder Generator Carbon Dioxide
Reactor system with
Aquario Neo CO2 Diffuser
Co2.
Citric Acid mix.
Filtration.
Dennerele Corner Filter.
Switched to APS Hang on Back Filter 500l.
Hardscape.
Dragon Stone
Substrate.
JBL Dark Sand 5l.
Dennerle Nano Shrimp Gravel Sulawesi Black 2l.
Plants.
Bucephalandra sp Theia Dark
Bucephalandra sp Catherine mini
Bucephalandra sp Catrina

Anubias sp petite
Nymphaea zenkeri
Echinodorus Reni
Cryptocoryne sp flamingo
Cryptocoryne sp Green geko
Cryptocoryne sp Albida brown
Cryptocoryne sp Becketti
Rotala Macranda Mini Type 4


1. To increase the height of the hardscape I've made up a large Haggis with the use of a black pond filter bag, filled with Seachem Flourite substrate black.

2.
Intended to have a slope from the back left to the right but this restricted space for the filter so pulled the haggis into the middle of the tank.
3.
Added the JBL sand and built the ring of dragon stone.

4.
The hardscape will be glued with Bondic when it arrives!
5.
Bondic has been delivered this morning so made an attempt to bond some of the rocks together!

So using the Bondic worked reasonably well, time will tell if the Dragon Stone falls apart after I add water;).

6. Added some pebbles to block up the gaps around the stones!

7. Added some inert gravel with root balls/tablets ontop.

8. Plugged some more of the gaps with black filter sponge...then added more gravel.

9. Proceeded to attach Bucephalandra sp Theia dark to the 2 larger background rocks using superglue these will go back into the aquarium when 3/4 filled.
10. Tapwater added.... a touch of surface scum, so added a small skimmer.

11. Water a tad cloudy...think its mostly coming from the root tablets/balls:(
12. Added some stems as floaters...... Hygrophlia sp difformis to aid with filtering the immature aquarium.

14. No real issues with the water quality, probably need a bigger filter or add another Dennerele Corner Filter!:(

15. Okay, The Dennerele Corner Filter wasn't cutting the mustard!:(
Therefore was looking for a hang-on filter that will give me some decent flow around this set-up!
Stuck for limited space so opted for the
All Pond Solutions Aquarium Hang on Side/Back External Filter 500L/H
There have been mixed reviews on this filter regarding leaking etc.
I've set it up this morning, no sign of any leakage atm:thumbup:
I'm quite impressed with the price and the performance considering it's under £25.00 delivered!:happy:
