Had a quick look through the post but didn't spot it, where did you buy this grass? How many pots used? cheers

I spent a fair bit on the hairgrass, in total 18 pots (I wanted to get as much plant bio-mass as poss from the off), Tropica from TGM (Looking back I could of did it with less if I was patient enough to split the plants a bit more)

Cheers

I was expecting Green Neon to be ... well green i guess. Is this just not showing up on the pictures or are my expectation of lime coloured fish a few yards wide of the mark?

They only look green if you look down at them other wise just blue and they are awesome!

Yep gorgeous looking fish, the pics don't do them justice....they have a green reflection off the surface aswell, looks great!

UPDATE:05/11/09 Week 7

Well it's week 7 and I went a bit mad with the camera so I thought I'd post the pics, it'll be the last pics on the journal....I was thinking of getting it photographed properly when it's around 6 months old and maybe try a competition (we'll see how it goes)

Thanks for looking

Mark

That's superb, Mark!

I'm loving these in-situ shots that give us a real sense of how the aquascape and set-up fits into the living space so well.

You must be really chuffed, and rightly so. Well done!

Shame you're so far away, Mark. I'd love to have come and do some studio-lighting shots of that beauty.

Wow guys...cheers....I'm sitting here with a massive grin on my face :oops: :D

It's great to get such great feedback especially from the people who have inspired me so much since getting into aquascaping and discovering UKAPS (which is one amazing forum with some very cool characters who have give me tons of help, tips and advice)

That would be awesome George, really wished you were closer...my pics are crap!

Your PFK cover looks amazing George :thumbup: you must be chuffed to bits with it!!

Once again many thanks for taking the time to look and write those cool comments

Just Echoing what other have said but that really does look very stylish in your living room, the cardinals look perfect. Love the wall paper too! Nicley done - Tom
