Cheers for that Alan! There's masses of the stuff at the moment. It's a fast grower for sure.
Hey Ian, what fish did you stock in this tank ?
Hey mate, this was finally stocked with Rummy noses, black corries and a few pearl danios.
~Cheers mate, really like the 'Black corries' what they like to keep ? (sorry to jack your thread)
No problem Justin, they were easy to keep. I had them in ro water, however I know someone that keeps them in Lincolnshire water, which it really hard, with no problems, and they breed regularly. They can be expensive as an initial outlay though.
Yea most of my stock will be ordered online so the cost will be high! but I am used to paying crazy amounts for fish as I keep wild Tanganyikan cichlids which are pricey to say the least. Thanks for the info will look in to keeping them.
And this is how it finished

Stunning, again I am inspired and glad I have ultimately decided to go with the TMC tank for my first aquscape.
Just spent the last hour or so looking through this journal Ian and it was really inspiring! It has given me some ideas as to my next set up, so I wanted to ask a question or 2 first. Why did you go for the 30cm depth instead of the 45cm? I'm thinking better Co2 distribution?
I'm going to phone the gp in the morning. Due to The length of time I spent starring at the picture of the inside of the cabinet. Seriously though. Brilliant work,tanks amazing. Cheers kirk.
Hi Ian, been reading the journal over the last couple of days, from all the scrapes I have looked at on the web this is one of my faves. I'm so inspired by this scape! Its probably mentioned in the journal I probably missed it but, what species of moss is used on the Redmoor wood and how did you attach it?
Thanks for the inspiration!
I'm sure it's weeping .. But I'm sure he used Christmas moss also in this setup mate
Cheers Aron, any idea how it was attached? From day one it looked so natural like it had been growing on the wood for years
there are a few ways of doing it.. Fishing line (place a layer of moss on the wood and then wrap the fishing line around to hold in place), Super Glue (put small amounts of glue on what ever you like to cover and then stick the moss to that).
I would say hey used Fishing line/cotton to attach the moss here
Cool, I have some 3lb clear mono in my tackle box, this would probably do the job
Hi guys, thank you for your comments.
Aron is correct, this was Christmas moss. Well, it was a mix of java and Christmas. It was attached with green cotton.
@Brian Murphy I only chose this as it has the clear silicone. The rest have the black silicone.
I have enjoyed following this journal very much. Thanks for the journey!
Whats the distance between the led 1500 tile and the substrate?
Whats the intensity you have it on?
The distance was about 10-15 cm and it was on 100% for 8 hours.
The distance from the substrate I mean...10 to 15 cm should have been the distance from the water surface....how about from the substrate?
