What's the dimensions/volume of this tank again?
i too think the same, but one or 2 folks think it would be better with. personally i don't like it.ive taken it off and then put it back on now i think i will take it off again. :?deMastro said:But I think that your beautiful wood would be much stronger without the moss on it.

Hi Saintly,i know exactly what you mean,i used to fish the nelson fields strech in my day it was proper fishing,regards john,oh great scape mark it will look good when it fills out.saintly said:Thomas McMillan said:They're really nice fish - great choice for this scape actually.
thanks thomas. it was a conscious decision to get silver looking fish. you see i come from a background of fishing on the river trent and used to love catching roach chub and the likes. so it seemed obvious to get similar looking fish for a scape that lends itself to the river look. some may and probably do, that my scapes dont follow rules of fish from the same regions as the plants etc...i dont particularly care TBH if it looks right for me, then thats good enough.
within the last ten minutes ive fed them blood worm literally from the hand. i wish that happened when i was in fishing matches (eh mr stakey? )
To be honest I wouldn't put anything on that wood, its looks awsome on its own, if you try to cover it with anything else it just will hide its beauty which is the focal point of the tank. I had some Fissedens on my Redmoor roots and then took it off to place in the shrimp tank to get the algae cleared, and the tank just looks much better with the bare wood, so if you want a nice focal point don't cover it up. You can do something a the base but even then I would plant in a way as not to hide the tree trunk feel of the wood.saintly said:cheers LD i can allways rely on you for kind words whats your opinion on the moss on wood debate LD?
