I think perhaps it's time for a rescape...Nothing too adventurous, I plan on using the same plants for a bigger project after I've relocated. I'll probably make a start tomorrow. Looking forward to pulling the Buce out just to seeing how big it's grown, it's hard to tell atm in amongst the tangled mess.

Thanks Jay, I've enjoyed writing it and reading other members contributions. I'm not sure it'll be over just yet, I'll have to see how the rescpe works out. I intend to reuse most of the plants, I need them for a bigger project I'm planning once we've finally managed to relocate. If it turns out completely different I'll probably start a new journal ;)

Finally got around to breaking this scape down yesterday. Still got a lot to do but here are some shots of the some of the plants I pulled out from the tangled mess, they've all been growing in either partial or complete shade for at least the last month or so...

Nice! Thats a good looking Buce there - and probably about £50 worth to buy new!

It'll be interesting to see haw many shrimp you have hiding in there!

Sounds intriguing the next chapter, look forward to the next instalment.

Thanks @Harry H I think I'm going to need them all though :)
Cheers @Jayefc1 and @Wookii. there was the usual myriad of shrimp, but they were all quite large, I guess the Scarlet Badis did for most of the smaller ones.

It was a bit full, the fish were almost pressed up against the glass :eek:

I got some of the same buce from p@h at the time you mentioned you bought yours. Mine has been in a very low tech under constant shade and still grown over half the size yours has in much better conditions. I'm impressed with how undemanding a plant it actually is as I have some thriving in areas so dark even anubias isn't impressed.

Very much looking forward to your next scape.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks @mort, @Deano3, and @Onoma1 Not sure how the next scape will turn out. It's more about just keeping the plants alive until I move. I'm hoping I'll have the space for a bigger tank at last :)

Thought I'd spend the afternoon doing a spot of baking while the wife is out...
It's worked out quite well, I'm pleased with the results and the place doesn't smell that bad either, although I might have gone nose blind in the process :D

Was that the soil that was baked?
