So the summer ended and with it my vacations,
I decided to setup my new tank, and although some problems with the co2 hardware, here it goes.
Im still waiting for some plants to fulfill what i want to do with this aquascape.
Hope you guys enjoy it.

Very natural layout and clearly the fish love it :)! Same style as Troi's Tulgey Wood, but that's no bad thing ;)
The substrate on the left is banked very high, could this cause problems with anaerobic patches or substrate collapse/landslide? Is it supported in any way?

hi, i didn´t know the troi´s Tulgey Wood setup but must check it.
I was inspired by the setup of cliff hui - destiny you must check it cause its lovely

The substrate has supporting rocks on the sides and almost 70% is rock bellow also the grain is large enough for leating the substrate "breed" ....i think i wont have anaerobic problems

Ok good to know you thought it through, I can't wait to see this fully grown in and established!
just checking the Tulgey Wood, very nice indeed.
This is kind of boring sometimes because i have some difficulties in finding good plant suppliers around here.
You want anubias? there you have, many has you wish!
But, you want a simple glosso? it's not in stock, monte carlo? only one shop that i know have it and its not the cheapest one, i should have set a anubias tank instead!

Stunning scape Jo,

looks perfect! I guess that the stone on the left is only temporary (the one on the wood)?

Cheers,
Chris

Lovely healthy angels, that's a delight to see. I'm guessing that they are juveniles as well else it's a massive aquarium ;) to see such happy juveniles is very rare most I see in fish shops are always shabby with odd fins or nipped fins due inappropriate tank mates. Love the scape for them.

Thanks. I treat them the best i can. I try to varie the food, that and good water is the key for me. I have like 6 brands of food, including live food and they seem to love this method. Its like us, we dont like to eat the same thing everyday :)

They are amazing hunters and love live food! I used to keep a couple of large pregnant gupeys with mine. Even in a well planted tank they found the babies. Was amazing to watch them hunt. As close to the wild as I can get...
