Any chance you'll be going to MA Crowland any time soon? Don't choose anything till you've been there, that place has loads of quality fish ;)

Re: saintly's "The Miracle Mire"

quick up date,

my e tennelus has at last started to show signs of immersed growth. it was bought in its emerged form.
the rotal rotundifolia is at the top now and is due its trim maybe sunday.
the rotal sp green. was a slow starter but is coming up nicely now (see image)
the m umbrosum is still staying low, just like hc would grow.it is coming up but REAL slow and bushing of its own accord.

minor crypt melt is all but over with new growth coming through.
mosses greening up
anubias,microsorum doing good. c helferi...thumbs up oh, and ive added blyxa ;)

im also tempted to put a black background on this set up. a bit like early amano work nature aquarium book 1

anyway a pic, not full frontal just a taster.

Do you know,I could hardly believ reading a thread from less than a year ago where Saintly felt less than qualified to offer advice.I had to double check the dates.

Your tanks rock!!

Looks really grown in already! I think a black background definately gets a thumbs up from me.

i started roughly oct 2007 ish.

. i just fell in love with planted tanks and was determined to produce a good looking tank. i started on TFF where i discovered the basics regards co2 ferts but that wasn't till march this year. the last 8 months ive just buried my head in books and the net. :D

i discovered ukaps (AAron north guided me, thanks fella ;) ) summer this year i think, and yes its changed my aquascaping tons. i found who to trust regards information on ukaps and never looked back. i think those guys know who they are (tips hat)
i feel happy that i now have another creative escape in my life.

thanks for the interest goody ;)

Your welcome, I found your first ever rock positioning in your Rena 300 the funniest, but that too turned out to be a decent scape (still great but decent by your standards now ;) )
