Looking forward to the next one with high expectations! (no pressure!)

This tank is one of my favorite. Three years ago, when I started with this hobby, I followed your journal.;)
Thanks for raising this back from the dead :) this was a great journey and kinda of wished I had been able to carry this on! I want my Bosemani back!! ;) but the current scape is turning into something that looks a little like this tank at some stage!

Brilliant read. Having similar HC issues myself so emphasised over that LOL.

Pheww, I'll have to read the rest of your journals now.

Many thanks :) this was a great roller coaster ride ;) the HC needs a fertile substrate as I found out with the new tank, also requires the right fertilizer, those Tobis fertilizers I tried were perfect for the HC.

I'd never seen this before so I'm glad it this thread got revived as it's a great read. Quite sad to see the empty tank at the end, every scape was fantastic as were the pictures.

Many thanks, still amazes me people read this whole journal :) if it wasn't for the heater incident that boiled the contents I am sure this would still be going today! Kind of lost interest in this tank since that empty picture, hence I want to retire it now and start again with something else.
