cheers mate, it's a joy to keep tidy. it's making me want to use it again, but with the vast amounts of plants available for foregrounds, there's just not enough time to try them all.....what an exciting hobby eh? :D ......

very. i've been given the all clear to re-scape. i want to try and do something a long the lines of dutch maybe. to show off stems and to give me a chance to try out trimming techniques etc....

the stems fill the tank now, even after trimming you can see in the image how dense the back wall of rotala is.

you can also see the new tank just a little further down. considering it's just JBL aquabasis plus substrate, the growth is mega. :wideyed: it was supposed to be a long term scape too :lol: ....well hopefully longer than my home tanks at least 8)

I have to give a big, hand on heart thank you to George Farmer for his generosity in giving me a feature in the latest edition of PFK! i think i'd be safe in saying Jamesm too, is grateful.

To be asked in the first place was touching enough, but to actually see me and something i've done in a magazine is quite, well lets say...Nice!

if it was not for people like George and his commitment to the planted tank scene in this country the hobby wouldn't be where it is now!
