It'll look even better with a clean up! Thanks for the comments and it was great to meet another forum user.baron von bubba said:the tank looks bigger in the pics than it really is, it does look even better "in the flesh" tho!!
As long as you leave some leaves and runners you'll be good. The grass really needs cutting back though as it'll probably use more energy recovering than it would growing, so get rid of all the bad growth and it will encourage new healthy growth. Cut this almost to substrate level. Plants love being pruned mate!Superman said:I did try and take the grass to the substrate level but my scissors are a bit small and find it hard to reach some places.
I'll take the HC down a bit more then, how far would you suggest?
Thanks, I'll experiment with coloured backgrounds once I'm happy the growth for photo shots.flygja said:If I may, your fish don't stand out against the clear background and gray rocks. I think a black background will bring them out nicely.
Thanks John, I've got five in there now and that'll do me for a while. They're really active which is a good sign.john starkey said:Nice looking cherries Clarke,how many did you put in?
