Darrel should enter one of his tanks, I'm sure he'll have one with UK only plants that has been growing stable for years :D

I really don't know how you can do a UK based tank maybe this one?

I would have thought Alastair would have brought this up.

UKAPS seems to be a bit of a ghost town for older members these days. Not sure why...
Hi Andy

Sorry for my lack of presence on Ukaps as of late, I've had a couple of health issues ( sorted now hopefully) which took precedence and bee getting bits ready in the background for the next big tank which starts a week on Saturday.

I have brought this up don't worry, hopefully get it sorted asap.
Hope your well mate

That's understandable mate and I hope you are on the mend! It just seems that a thriving community has gone very quiet over the last few months which is a real shame. I just hope it's one of the lulls that forums inevitably seem to go through. I think UKAPS is a superb forum and I would really hate to see it dwindle into non-existence - especially as the aquascaping scene in the UK (in my mind at least) seems to be picking up pace (as perhaps increasing FB groups and this competition would suggest ).

Maybe it's just me? Maybe everyone else has a life!

Looking forward to this one!

I hope it goes well! Nice to see you involved in it. How long has this been in planning? The reason I ask is that at the Shrimp tour that Chris did your name did come up and there was a little wink, wink, nudge, nudge between Chris and Patrick (I think that's who it was) so I suspect this is what they were alluding too?

Hi all,
George Farmer's award winning Stickleback tank from 2009 is here <"Great British Biotope">.

I haven't.

I've got some that have been set up a long time, but theonly planting criteria is "any plant that survives in them" and the only category they could be entered for would be "benign neglect jungle".

cheers Darrel

Why would you need to know the company? They are one of the biggest wholesalers in the trade so we should not know them. To organise something like this takes a lot of work and lets admit the prizes are very good. First year will be trial and error but it should improve in the future. One thing for sure it will greatly improve the level of UK scaping which currently is extremey low :( . There are 3-4 people in the country only! If you look at hungary history of competition the standard skyrocketed over 3-4 years.
So no mater who and how tries to do it gets big thumbs up :thumbup:
