Here are a few photo's of my experiments with planting a Trigon 190 tank.

Also some shots of my Blue Diamond Discus in a previous setup.

I apologise for the slight fuzziness in one or two of the photos. Also for the lack of backing and appearance of cables (I was waiting for a tailor made backing to arrive)

Stage 1 semi dry scape.

A month later and the Glossistigma has gone wild.

My first attempt at creating a discus biotope in my previous tank using mangrove roots and plants.

I never saw cardinals looking happier.

You must spend a fortune on tanks and their setups!

Yes sort of but over a long period of time. I don't play golf, drive expensive cars, drink copious amounts of alcohol and if I had never started keeping fish and planted tanks probably would have paid my mortgage off by now!!

Still it keeps me happy I suppose.

ps my star sign is Aquarius, I wonder if that has got anything to do with it.

Cheers,

Steve.

Nice setup on the trigon 190, can I ask what your equipment setup is as I am currently trying a planted trigon 190 but don't think my tri spec led is strong enough to support plant growth
