Quick update.

Tank and fish doing really well. Just got back from a 10 day business trip from Africa to see that my colleague at work did a really good job on feeding the fish and dosing ferts, first time I have come back to a tank in a long time with nothing to get pissed off about :) Got lots of trimming to do next week, which I will offer on the forum

Anyway, one quick very poor camera phone photo to show new growth, will take some more soon when the next addition to the tank arrives ;)

This is crackin mate.

It reminds me of an earlier Amano work.

The large stone works really well in this layout, along with its little brothers. The natural look of the grass type plants works great to.

I'm contemplating using large stones and wood together in the next layout. Iwagumi, with a touch of wood.

Hi mark, thanks, the stone is starting to nicely blend in now. The initial scape had weeping moss which was removed but a fair bit found itself in the foreground, since the last trim i have let it grow a bit and i am liking the natural softened look of the foreground
