Ok so those of you that where observant in scape corner post could see the left hand tank was just a kinda shell so this is what I have so far
80cmx40cmx45cm opti white tank
Co2 art reg and the new flux defuser (thats now in the 45p cause I managed to break the neo difuser)whent for the bigger one just because the misses says size matter
JBL 1500e brought from Jon on here with a hydro in line heater
Twin star 600 with dimmer on a suspension kit (Dave said this light will be more than enough coverage)
Some plants coming from ash donated on here may have to home them in sons tank for a while
So here is the hard scape kinda finished today wanted a triangle nature style (with sand I know some don't like but I do)
Let me know what you think please be gentle but honest as it's going to be long term
Thanks for taking the time to look
Jay

I like the contrast of the Redish wood and grey... I've looked at that much stone in the last year.. so many different types..

Oh yes it become a bit mind boggling the amount of stone and sand not to mention plants and substrate

Very nice scape - sand and stone transition is well done

Just make sure you’ve enough fast growing stems initially as tank establishes, maybe add some floating plants if you’re short on stems

Stunning fish once they settle in ... I had a shoal with chocolate gouramis, colours looked great together and lots of interesting activity in tank BUT they were speed eaters and choco’s are not :oops:
