    NA style 45f

    3 month update I thought I would post a quick update to show people how this aquarium has progressed over the last three months. Overall this tank has done very well and the plants have grown in nicely. I added some hygrophila pinnatifida later on. I love this plant and have been encouraging...

    Cautionary Tales from an Idiot

    They are referring to the flow rate listed on the filter. I think you'll find the actual flow rate is significantly less (approximately half what is advertised) when the filter is filled up. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Chihiros WRGB2 height

    Have a look on Ebay, there is a seller selling brand new chihiros lights. Not if they have exactly the model you're after. Otherwise you can buy them on Aliexpress - with long shipping time and likely customs charges. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Floating plants not healthy

    Likely a lack of nutrients rather than co2 related as it will have an unlimited supply of co2 from the air. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Foraging for hardscape materials

    Thanks. It looks very nice, a lot like manzanita. The outer layer has started to decompose so I'm going scrape it off. Hopefully the gamble pays off Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Foraging for hardscape materials

    I've been foraging for dead branches in a local woodland and have come across what I thought (correct me if I'm wrong) is an oak tree with some cut branches. There were some dead branches beneath it. Do these look like dead oak branches to you? I've read that oak is an excellent choice for...

    Obviously not what you want to here but in my opinion rummy-nose need more swimming room than a 60p provides.

    First attempt

    I think it could benefit from one or two larger pieces of wood. A larger piece of wood and fewer small pieces will make for a more impactful scape imo. Lots of smaller pieces can be distracting and won't create the drama of a larger piece. You may even want some of the wood protruding, which...
