    Hi,

    So I had the pleasure of attending this event yesterday. Was a really nice morning, and was great to meet George and Maurits.

    The tank looked awesome and had some really cool plants, my favorite being Bucephalendra (I think that's the name).

    Only got a few snaps because I had to rush off not long after but here they are...

    I dunno if you will be able to answer this James (maybe George can) but is the Bucephalendra (if it was Bucephalendra) a new introduction to the Aquafleur range?

    Regards

    Jonny

    Hi Jonny,

    I believe it is a fairly recent addition to the Aquafleur range. I think George said it would be available soon if it isn't already.

    And it looks awesome.

    Likewise George and Maurits. Would be great if you could get other maidenheads to let you do it in the future!

    Yes not bad at all! I had a look under the hood as I couldn't quite believe how well it looked given the almost minimal CO2 coming out the diffuser!

    What was the reactor you used on the George? I like the look of it! I'd imagine the tank is about 180L so I'm sure it could do a job in my aquarium!

    Stumbled across this thread looking for places to shop in Leicester...I must have walked past that tank a dozen of times or so without realising, I've always admired it and thought it was pretty good...now I know why:rolleyes:

    Anyway, the scape is still going strong; and by coincidence James was giving it some maintenance when I arrived. So I thought I'd post a couple of snaps by way of an update.
