I love the look of them @Jayefc1 and your new scape looks great! But I think I'd get bored too quickly with it (like I did with my iwagumi)

What I have in my head with this is a fair bit going on between hardscape and variety of plants, fingers crossed I pull off the picture I have thought up...

I like the stainless co2 tube connector glass always breaks on me
But I also like the look of the bending neo diffuser so no need for a connector

Cheers

That's exactly why I bought the SS ones as my last glass one broke on me @Jayefc1 the only thing that outs me off the bendy ones is the heating leaves black marks on the acrylic

Hardscape update, still need a journal title for this...

Thanks @Patrick Crowley thats always nice to hear and exactly why I decided to try and do a tank like this, something a bit different and it also gives me another challenge

I was finding myself in the same old mindset with each of my 3 tanks so have rescaped them to 3 different styles and it makes for much more interesting viewing and looking forward to taking a step back and enjoying watching them grow in

Nice tanks you have. Like those big pebbles. I want to ask sth.
Are your Eheim HOBs silent? Are you satisfied with them? I have Aqua Nova NF450 on my 12L and it has good feature - there is reverse valve so the filter doesn't get empty when out of electricity. Is there sth similar or what happens in case of power cut?

Hi @rjugas thanks for the compliment :thumbup:

They are quiet but do give off a slight hum, and mo they do slowly drain back into the tank when power is turned off
