    Yeah, go Dutch Mark.

    The UK hasn't seen a great Dutch tank (yet) and you'll get to hone your pruning skills even further...

    Not sure what I'm looking forward to more - the 'scape or the photography...

    Looking forward to this one, whatever style you decide on.. Your scapes rock! I don't suppose I can persuade you to part with some stems when you tear the current set up down? If you dont ask and all that! :thumbup:

    nice one, sounds good with the mosses. Has your missus let you off with the 1 tank rule yet or is the smaller one already broken down? (120cm not as easy to sneak in as a nano!)

    What rock are you thinking of to go with the moss and wood?

    Re: Saintly's 120cm latest scape

    it's tempting mate. I may do a trial 60cm tank before going for it in a 120 though.

    there already claimed, but if there's some HM left i'll let you know. :thumbup:

    the nano is still running stu. I may just swing this if i play my cards right.

    Not sure. maybe ML rock.although lava rock is tempting. :D

    true sam, even a NA scape could keep me on my toes. especially moss!

    :lol: There's many for the NA style. I think it'l be NA style, maybe with a touch of dutch? :shifty:

    thanks Ceejay, i dont sleep at night thinking how to scape this thing.

    thanks andy :D

    Thanks matey :thumbup: there'l be plenty of those to come!

    have you been talking to my wife? o_O ....she wants wood too! miracle mire was her favourite tank and she's instructed me to use.... wood!

    So guy's, once everything is in place i'll update :thumbup:

    thanks everyone.

    we never master these things. :angelic: and TBH, I never even come close to amano's look. this is what I aspire to.
