    Have a new tank coming in two weeks – got everything sorted apart from the hardscape and plants. Tank is 58” x 20” x 30” deep. Saw some nice wood in lfs but it was £50.00. Got these rocks from local stone merchant for £5.00 but not sure how they will look , I need to introduce some wood as have a couple of large bristle noses.
    Dont want anything too ‘spiky’ in case my discus hurt themselves on it....


    Also does anyone have an opinions on the planted 'collections' available - (botanic garden)

    1. Re-size your images to around 800 pixels along the longest edge.

    2. Upload your images to a hosting site i.e. Photobucket or Image Shack.

    3. Copy and paste the URL provided, so you'll see something like this in your post...

    When you post the image should display.

    Up load them to something like photobucket, and they provide a link that looks something like

    please dont take this the wrong way, but if it were me i wouldnt use thouse stones, i feel they lack texture, something like mini landscape rocks from ae or tgm's blue stone adds that extra detail and really makes the scape look professional- just my thoughts
