do you think it can be trimmed like grass and not have an ill effect on the plant?? to keep it short??

good question paulo. one i still need to explore my self. my guess is, the cut leaf would die, but I'll experiment. it's a slow grower so pruning may not be needed.

it's amazing stone samc, truly. and 20p a kilo, it makes me smile every time i look at it :D

there's 18 amano shrimp in there, and 5 lemon tetras, just for feeding purposes and to get filters running to full strength....i think it's done like that right?.....

anyway, for everyone's purpose, I'll be adding images to my site, so just check that on occasions for further updates ;)

i also think i have found the right stone!! a new shop has opened near me i noticed in the paper that sell rocks for garden, water features ect, so i looked on there website and they have a great looking stone not as cheap as yours but at £1.30 per kg its still cheap to me :D

I know Mark has many tips planned, its just a matter of fitting everything in to 24 hours :) Great idea though, I'm sure more suggestions, comments and requests can only be beneficial to all :)

Looking great Mark - love the look of the lilaeopsis 'lawn'. Looks like your tank doesnt need any PS work - I spend hours retouching all the algae out of my pics :lol:

Come on, give us a full frontal :lol:

They look pretty good. The hint of red/purple seems to suit the slight colouration of the rock :) I have read that Emperors can be quite fragile though, might be worth double checking :)

these little critters have settled in a treat. chasing each other. quite funny actually. i'm as green as the grass in my garden when it comes to fish. i didnt want to take the "cardinal" route. i'll just keep swapping until i find something i like.

thanks for the reply steve! :D
