Re: sams 60cm (final layout)

It's nice to do new stuff :D I do think in the long term it'll take away some of the depth from your tank, but it'll also open more doors and allow you to play with various stems in the background, or similar.

Looks quality anyway :thumbup:

Very nice, Sam. Will look great once grown in, I'm certain. Reminds me of Mark's recent 60cm - which is a good thing...

What Anubias is that (petite?) and where did you get it from. It looks stunning!

And the glassware? I've not seen an outlet like that before.

Cheers.

I'm mightily impressed and flattered to some degree. re- the advice, your welcome, and it looks like the anubias sits well in the overall scape :thumbup:

Nice work. I like the backlit effect too. I have been pondering setting up one of my tanks with something like that for evening viewing.

i am so close to ripping this down now. so many problems in this its unbelieveable. first of all the HM was half daead when i got it and its just sitting there, ill probely have to replace it. the anubias is rotting from being sat in a bucket too long before planting and is just falling apart. i have been doing 50% water changes every other day and i have GSA diatoms and fuzz algae. half the nanjeshan has rotted for no apartent reason. and just to top it today 3 of my amanos have jumped out and died.
