    It’s coming along really well Jay :thumbup:

    Picture below was taken last week (about 6 weeks old) when some of the stems are just starting to colour up. I will take some proper pictures this weekend and post more angles and close ups :) more and more colour each day!

    Felipe lean fert recommendation appears to be going well so far. Soil is loaded with root tabs, and we have adapted our own liquid fert method using TNC Lite and TNC Complete (we normally dose TNC Complete daily). I will keep you updated with the results and effectiveness of this type of dosing. But I can say so far plants are looking very healthy and we have had very little algae. In this type of layout and plant choices its working well.

    We have also been increasing the light intensity over time. Currently running at 80%. Upping this to 100% next week :happy:

    Progress pictures taken last week. Very orange autumnal feel to it at the moment, pink and reds starting to show.

    A few close ups of the plants health - particularly love this Hygrophila Pinnatifida in these pictures, very orange! Starting to go pink this week too, will update more next week.

    Light now on 100% :D

    Wow, looking fantastic, you've done a great job growing it on.
    Are you still using Filipe's fertz dosing regime?

    CO2 is inline so you can't see any diffuser in the tank. We are running 2 x inline CO2 Art diffusers, 1 on each filter. The CO2 mist comes out of each glass outlet.

    The filters are the Oase Biomaster Thermo 600, 1 at each end of the tank.

    Nice opening in the middle and use of plants and wood at the sides looks very natural.

    Great timing @Jayefc1 I've just given it a trim. Before and after....

    When the stems grow back a bit to a nice height I will post another update :)

    Just epic, such a great scape superbly maintained. One of those tanks that looks great bushy or trimmed too.
