Looking good Sam Would be great to see it in the flesh!
I did try this but it doesn't work very well. I'll give it another go when I pop in there later in the week. I'll let you know if I get decent piccy's
I tried this and got the best results by using a tripod then measuring the distance from the tank and making sure the angle was 90 degrees from the tank. Still wasn't perfect though!!!
Just to say I popped into the GFB during lunch with camera firmly in hand only to find the battery is dead! Doh!
I chatted to Barry and 20 ottos and 30 amano shrimp will be going in soon, with some nerites in a week or so. There is some thread algae growing which these critters should deal with. The plants are generally doing well, the Hygrophila polysperma 'Sunset' is going mental, I can see even in a low/mid light tank I'm going to have to keep on top of the pruning. Some of the crypts have melted quite badly but thats to be expected from crypts.
I'll probably go in again later in the week to do a prune and general maintenance check when I'll try and get some more photos, if I remember to charge the camera!
No surprise where the Hygrophila is concerned! Shame I don't live near any good plant shops, no where in Sussex seems to be any good.
Just read through this Sam. I was already thinking of a reply saying it reminded me of John Starkey's tank when I read you r comment had beaten me to it. lol
Looks great in my eyes. will look better when it becomes a little less uniformed but very nice all the same.
Cheers Andy it needs time to fill in but thats the case with most tanks. It'll develop Im sure
Did you manage to get a pic?
Any updates? I'm dying to see how much this has grown in
Nice one Sam.
How do the Dennerle plants compare to Tropica?
Thanks for the interest. You're probably aware I've not ben very active lately, lifes been a bit stressful of late and Ive just been to busy to spend the time on here. Hopefully that will change.
I've not actually been to the shop for several weeks so I dont really know how these tanks are doing. I must get down there soon and will be sure to update this once I have.
As for the quality of the plants. Out of the box, they are as good if not better (in some cases) than tropica.
any updates? It has been a long time!
How are the tanks looking these days? I understand the Dennerle system is geared towards lower maintenance so hopefully everything is good.
what are the small foreground plants? i want some!!
Unfortunately these tanks were taken down a few months ago, for various reasons, not least my work situation that meant that I was unable to visit the shop for several weeks.
I was supposed to be redoing them in the new rena range but Ive not heard anything.
Shame it could have been good.
Shame indeed. Nice planted display tanks are shops' best advert for the hobby.
