    i only had the tank a few weeks.i got the echindorus red thingy out of my first ever tank. it was the only thing i could grow. it even had underwater flowers and often produced that ugly runner with new palnts.

    anyway, its been quite a year for me on the learning front. the setup took many shapes and forms over a short period. including the wonderfull growth of algae :lol:

    You sure have come a long way ;) We could use this thread to show our first scape and how it turned out ;)

    Here is mine back in April 2007:

    This was my first attempt at a carpet but it fell over before it got anywhere. Dec 2006

    LondonDragon, can you remember what that black fish with the red tail is, top right of first pic and left of second? I think it's a type of rainbow and I've been looking for it for ages but don't know what it is?

    First effort July 2005, inspired by "branch" :)

    I think this is as good as this aquascape got, it became an algae haven not too long after.
