cheers John, I'm pleased with the stone arrangement. i wish i had it at home.

I've been over to MA today. W/C etc. tanks looking good. the HC has now taken and i think i've lost what is to be lost, so I'm over the worst.

6 shrimps have been added to the 4 ottos. it's to stay like that for a couple of weeks then more shrimp and ottos.

i cant believe what's happening to the rotala....its going red! :wideyed: i cant get it to do that in my tanks. so i may end up with a wall of red....some may be thinking why put rotala in?....because i thought it would stay a pinky colour.

Re: The Henge part 2

i got some jigerypokery at the weekend. about 10% of the hc is lost. just died. the other 80% has taken :D (thankfully) so it's just a case of planting a bit more (the proper way) and letting nature take over.


what happened to the other 10% ;) ;)

Hi Mark,sweet mate really sweet,regards john.

thanks very much kind sir!

The tank's seems to be taking on a very different look to what i originally envisaged. In appearence, it's developing a summery look.i think this may be down to the colour of the rotala.

now some maybe laughing in there sleeves at the idea of putting r rotundifolia into a tank and that i was expecting it to stay green....well the fact of the matter is, i cant make it go red to save my life :wideyed: until now!

now theres nothing obviously different in this, my 60cm and The Miracle Mire....except for one thing!....

now all 3 tanks have r rotundifolia from AQUAFLEUR all the same dosing regimes and W/C (relative to tank size of course) co2 and filtration (all exceed at least 15 x turnover)

the one thing thats different is in this particular scape 1 of the 39wt5s has a colour temp of 5400K and the other 8000K. my other tanks also run @ 8800K. i'm wondering whether its colour temp that could bring such colouring? it's early days for this rotala, but it will go red for sure.

my 60cm contains rotala twice the size and is as green as sp green....almost

this image is well and trully PS'D but it gives the shape of the layout quite well...

and how the tanks is fitting in to the overall layout of the shop....

Thanks Mark, looks like a trip down there me thinks, we normally go to the MA @ The Duckeries, so a trip to East Bridgford isn't out of the way:)
