    So since the festival I’ve been deciding on plants, co2 stuff, soaking wood etc - and this is what has transpired. First time I actually really thought about how to 'make the tank look' as for me it's always been s'long as fishes were happy........

    really love the wood! makes a lovely focal point that leads the eye along the scape :)

    get looots more plants though.. youll struggle keeping it together with such a low biomass, you then need to decide to do full co2, or no co2, and stick to it though. learn to be very good with your DIY co2, and you can pull it off that way, but its hard.

    great start!

    More plants and lose the airstone, as it drives off CO2.

    Nice start though. ;)

    Is that airstone still bubbling away? :lol:
    It's looking good, the moss really ages and softens the wood.
