Sounds like you're stealing my ideas! Best of luck Mark, I'm sure it'll be another good one!

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:

Re: Saintly's 120cm latest scape

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?

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

I think you've mastered the rock + stems look. Time to go wood :thumbup:

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

The ball is rolling now. the nano resides on the cabinet thingy....temporarily :(
