Thanks for the info George, I will get rid of all my stems and just keep some of the plants I have, crypts and anubias will do well do I will keep those, have some bolbits coming too so that will be nice. Have to get my thinking cap on now and start planning something.George Farmer said:I would also recommend new plants if you can. Older plants can tend to struggle after long periods, depending on species. I had some new Rotala green in the same tank as some old Rotala green. The difference in growth rates and general health was remarkable.
Good luck with the new layout. For me the planning and implementing of new ideas is one of the most exciting aspects to the hobby.
Not sure about a good scape but I will try to come up with something that looks half decent haha and rest assured that when I enter a competition it will be as an UK entry and not Portuguese But I don't think I am good enough to enter any competitions hahaSuperColey1 said:However I can foresee an excellent new scape arriving on UKaps soon, with lots of knowledge gained, lots of confidence gained there is nothing to stop you here. Can't wait to see the 'new beginning'
Oh and you are a UK scaper and not a Portuguese scaper if you enter any comps. lol. Portugal has far too many good scapers already.

I am really excited and looking forward to see your new scape. You know it was this tank that in fact led me to the aquascaping "business".
Just out of curiosity, why did you ditch the Eheim brand for Tetratec? You could have chosen an Eheim 2080 with the same specs.
Thanks Mark, but its was pure luck until it run out LOLsaintly said:i think you'll find you are good paulo
Excellent scape mate , it's a shame you published the full tank shot, now you won't be able to nominate it to the ADA.LondonDragon said:Here it is my new scape, I call it "The Jungly Mess"
