I thought i would create a thread to post your finished aquascapes, as IMO seeing them collectively rather than in individual topics is better. If you do post your tank, then feel free to provide a link to the original topic if you have one, so that any questions can be discussed, to help keep this thread clean, no comments or questions please just your tank & specs!

You can copy this to use as a layout


Code:
  [b]picture -[/b] 

    [b]Name of Scape[/b] -
    [b]Tank[/b] - volume & size
    [b]Filtration & powerheads[/b] - Type, model & l/ph
    [b]Lighting[/b] - number of tubes, wattage, diameter (T5/ T8 etc), photoperiod
    [b]CO2[/b] - equipment, type (liquid/ pressurized/ fermentation), injection hour
    [b]Substrate[/b] - Type, depth, quantity used
    [b]Fertilisation[/b] - technique used (Estimative Index/ PMDD etc), quanities dosed & when
    [b]Water chemistry[/b] - pH, KH, GH, NO3, PO4, temperature (if you test)
    [b]Maintenance[/b] - water changes (percentage & when), filter clean,
    [b]Fauna [/b] -
    [b]Flora[/b] - preferably scientific names
    [b]Hardscape[/b]
    [b]Additional comments[/b]

I (or someone else) can create another topic for discussions, if need be.

thanks

Good idea Aarron, I'd like to see links to the corresponding journal though so that comment can be passed in the appropriate place.
