Love the texture on those stones :) I feel your pain on the breaking glassware, broke 2 pieces recently.

Hi guys I’m just pondering how my stocking levels are, perhaps be able to add something else. I have x10 rosy tetras/ x1 apisto macmaster male/ x2 netrile snails and x2 otocinclus .
I was thinking corys, perhaps pushing it a bit🤪 I am running a external more than x10 the filtration needed for my 100 litre...
Any thoughts on what if able , that I could possible add?!?

cheers. Oscar 👍

Not sure if i have an issue with Freddy my apisto male. He as picture shows seems to be spending time lying/hovering over either the sand or rock.

Any thoughts??

Oscar.

Moved my lily pipes to other side of tank, less distracting I think 🤔 .I also added some tropica capsules in sand/ soil just for a boost, as I already add all in one fert.
Was also thinking perhaps to move sand, to soil?! any advice/ comments most welcome.
Happy weekend guys 👍

Was inclined to re - scape, last minute decision decided to expand sand area/ add more plants.
What do you guys think, seems to have given more depth...happy - ish for now🤔

So a few months have past, plants seems to be establishing themselves in tank/ background needs trimming or it gets pretty invasive.

Hope all you guys are doing well ,

Oscar.

Whole tank/ cabinet view, aquascaper 600 still to me is a lovely footprint of tank. Just a pity it seems you can’t get your hands on them any longer online ?!?!
have a great weekend everyone,

Oscar

They have rebranded as D-D and are available again. The price has increased slightly and significantly for ‘premium’ cabinet colour choices.
Cheerio,

Hi guys,
Large water change also created larger sand area/ replaced it at the same time.
I’m also now carrying out water changes using a pump/ hose, soooo much easier than carrying buckets of water…. I should have done it years ago 🙄👍

Water changes so much easier with DIY hoses/ heater ‘holder’ 😆 and small pump.
Happy days no more sore back for me 👌
