    First, really nice looking scape and the reason I signed up after reading here for some time.

    Are these the correct plant species?

    Cyperus helferi
    Pearl Weed (Hemianthus micranthemoides)
    C. Wendtii
    C. Parva
    Bucephalandra (what variety?)
    Anubias Nana
    Rotala rotundifolia

    I bet the Parva grows SUPER slow in this tank right?
    Is there a bigger retailer for aquatic plants that sell Buca? (can't find it on Tropica) It's one of the best looking group of plants I've ever seen.

    Hi Dean. It will be in a PFK magazine back issue. I honestly can't remember which one I'm afraid. I will try to find out for you and reply on here if I have success. :)

    I read the article in December 2015 so it would probably be in January 2016, sure you can obtain back issues from PFK

    Out of interest, is it necessary to add a tap water dechlorinator if you just top up using small amounts, or does it become so dilute anyway that it doesn't make much difference?

    Great tank, looks brilliant!

    Yes. It doesn't take much chlorine to kill off your filter bacteria.
