Just joined so here is a photo of my first planted tank. Started in around Sept last year and very pleased with how it's gone. Low tech but with a nice bright nicrew light on it.

Just starting a big project in a Roma 240 now so will be documenting that in a Journal.

Whats that piece of wood on the right hand side? Is it stuck onto the glass with the sucker? Looks like its floating.

Lovely tank.

Lovely tank.

I bought this piece from the LFS already planted, I think they were sourced from Dennerle. Yes, it has a sucker so stuck to the glass, I've used it as a continuation of the mossy piece sat on the substrate.

Thanks for the tank compliments, I'm a techy non-arty person usually so it's been really nice to find a creative outlet!

Nothing special, just a Maidenhead internal filter which I have customised with the addition of some medium foam and some alfagrog: Intention being to use the alfagrog to help seed the FX6 on my Roma 240 when I flood it.
