so do it!!! :thumbup:
The lack of decent hardscape around these areas has put me off it, its getting better now with some stores stocking more varieties so we will see, unless you want to ship me some rocks :p

paulo if your looking for great hardscape go to aquatic design centre in great portland street central london.

they have AMAZING pieces of redmoor, from very large to nano, and they have seiryu stone but under a different name, and dragon stone under that name, and a stone called pagoda stone, all in big amounts and different sizes, they said they can get big pieces of stone to order too.

and its easy to get to from stockwell, 196 bus to vauxhall, then an 88 bus from vauxhall all the way to aquatic design centre.

Regards, Gus.

P.S would love to see some new pics.

They are lovely, I have lost a few over the months though, I am down to around 14 now. CO2 overdosing and EC the culprits!

Thanks for the suggestion, I have been shopping at ADC for a long time ;)

The tank has been just sitting there for the last 6 months or more, haven't done nothing to it, reduced the lighting to 2x24w, reduced CO2, dose whenever I remember, water changes once a month, its a sight for sore eyes to be honest lol

Ahh, i thought that one will last forever...
Enjoyed it a lot over past 2 years since i came to the hobby.
Thanks mate, its been fun and thought it would never end also, due to work load and a lot of neglect and a heater failure around xmas this tank turned to crap, so it was only fitting that I would finally get rid of the gravel lol

nelson said:
the end of an era :lol: .
looking forward to a new scape from you though :D .
All good things come to an end :p
Cheers, will see what I can pull out of the hat.
