Troo that mate :lol:

The last pic was taken a few hours ago after everything had a massive trim.. This is the last shuffle I'm doing on this tank I think... I want to change the horrible grey gravel to ADA Malaya or Africana and swap the oversized sand stone for mini landscape rocks. Not sure of planting yet though... There are so many styles and plants I want to try... I might just end up buying another tank tbh :lol:

Thanks gang, I've still loads to learn about how plants grow out, etc. and I still want to try different things. Its not easy to try a bit of everything in a 2ft tank, but at least I have an idea or two for next time.

Advice and suggestions are always welcome too :D

Thanks Paulo :)

Some updated pics, pretty much straight from the camera, apart from the borders. Obviously. :p

If you notice too, I've added some nice wood trim around the top of the tank to hide the braces. Fits in more with the decor we have too... I'm a big fan of real wood.

Cheers mate :)

Foreground plants are hc, glosso acicularis, p. helferi, riccia and a moss ball which is the feeding ground. Its a bit of a jungle upfront in itself :lol:

That has evolved so well, really beautiful! I like the close ups of the shrimps feeding near the moss ball. Well Done!

I gave the lawn a good trim today, including all other foreground plants. Took two hours to fish out all the cuttings :lol:

I wish I'd removed the spray bars and sorted the gravel line out for this shot, but I'm not really picky about stuff like that :lol:

I'm not sure where to go with this now, so I'll leave it grow another few weeks and see what happens...

Thanks for looking, suggestions and feedback always welcome :)
