Don't know :(

Have you put the pictures on the internets and linked to them in your post?

You can't just paste a picture into a post while you're writing it, it has to be a link to it.

Search the forum for "how do I post a picture"

Looking forward to seeing them,

Mark

When you uploaded the photo to imageshack, there should have been some text above a box that said ''paste this tet for forums'' or something along those lines, just pase that code into your post and the image should show up.

Failing that, just post the image URL (web address) so we can atleast view them externally.

Well done welshwizard, looking good!

You say it still has miles to go - what plans do you have for it?

I want to plant a few more mid ground plants to hide the stem growth from the hygro & iv tried carpet plants like cuba hc & glosso but with no joy, they dont seem to stay in the subtrate.

not sure what the 1 in the first scape is i just planted a load of stems, the 1 in the second scape is hygro polysperma, it grows fast but when trimed it ok, my fish love to hide in it because its so thick at the back, its an ok plant if you dont mind trimming every week at least
