    Paulo, This tank is no more. Enjoyed this while it lasted until the HC carpet lifted, then I used it to test out plant combinations. Now moved onto new bigger tank, with new bigger challenges. Cheers.

    120cm Planted Tank with Angelfish

    Thanks all for comments. Over coming weeks I'll be using the java fern plantlets to cover more of the wood. The Angels now prefer the more open area to the right, as I guess the adults do in nature.

    Thanks for advice, everyone I'll dump the vallis in the next week or so. Don't worry, I will break the news gently, 'its not working', 'its not you, its me' or something :) Re suggestion on pygmy corys, are they diggers? don't want to upset the HC?
