Where is the seat/sofa looking at the tank ????

I end up quite often not looking at TV, but staring at tank, mesmerised by green and waying plants and shoaling fish.

Hi all,

At last I managed to get some time to take some photos of my home tank. I'm really happy with the progress so far. It's been trouble-free with no algae and I only spend about 1hr per week on this.

I'm using hard tap water which bugs me a bit with the scale build-up on the aquarium glass and glassware, but it's a minor issue and nothing a bit of elbow grease won't remedy.

I've switched from the in-tank CO2 diffuser to an inline diffuser (Up Aqua) on the filter inlet (Fluval G3). CO2 is almost 2BPS giving a lime green in the 4dKH drop checker.

I have plans to add a few more crypts, Vallis nana, and another carpeting plant to mix with the hairgrass - probably E. tenellus.

I'm doing 'scape after 'scape lately with work and I was worrying that my passion for my own hobby would suffer, but actually I'm more excited than ever about aquascaping. :)

Cheers,
George

"Hi I'm George, I scape tanks all over the country and still find time for sub 50min 10k runs, family and my own tank at home" you are quite a man and this looks fantastic!!!

Looking nice and lush mate. Glad to see you still have time for yourself and of course the forum too mate.
Im hoping that the "more excited about aquascaping" comment means lots more to come?? ;)

Amazing such a great looking tank takes so little time - looks lovely.

It’ll be great to see all the other aquascapes you’ve been working on - are AquaGro going to release any pictures anytime soon?
