do you always use external lighting for your pics?

no, the lighting for this pic is the MH. it's more than enough to get a good pic, but i've been practising with the flash and I reckon in a few months after practise I should be getting some better shots.

thanks aaron, i must admit, this tank is the clearest i've had regards water clarity.

i'm treating this set up like no other i've had. after "prairie lands" failure, this HAS to work.

Looks great Mark. Very jungly or at least busy. Water looks superb. Reminds me I need to clean my filter. lol

Just a quick message to Sam:

Why buy 22mm copper pipe and spray it when you can buy stainless steel pipe from any DIY store for a reasonable price? That's my plan when I redesign the shelving and cabinets in my alcove but again Mark beat me to it while I am still waiting. lol. He makes me look so much of a copycat :lol:

All you need is the stainless steel pipe and a pipe bending spring to stop it flattening at the bends :)

Keep up the progress reports Mark. This is a new direction for you I think andits going well :)

andy mate, never would I consider you a copy cat, your more an innovator than many, your latest creation is the only one like it on here mate.

at the end of the day, we ALL are. just trying to mimic nature or our follow asian scapers :D

Very envious, Mark.
IMO, the perfect tank. Care to re-do mine for me? I still can't master growing the damn things (plants). :lol:
