Plant list

Will be running this without co2 or liquid carbon so should be another slow grower.
Thanks for looking in.

Rocks are very similar to the Baltic rock I got from Aqua Essentials.

Great hardscape, you still have that knack of making a very small tank look bigger. That's an art in itself.
Thank you Ian, I was lucky with the rocks tbh perfect fit, comment means a lot mate.
Going to be another nice little set up tim.
thanks Al, liking low tech you've been a big influence mate :)

for 12ltrs that quite astonishing. Well done fella.
Buce's are awesome, the colours in submerged form are a treat.
Ive got a plan for a buce only tank, just a shame about the cost for a 120cm!
Will be watching to see this mature :thumbup:

Thanks Iain, a 120 cm buce tank I would love to see.

Very nice scape! Love the Buces, Ive got some to go in my 90cm this weekend
Thanks stu looking forward to seeing your 90 back on the forum.
Tim, this is great...I think we have an up and coming aquascaper right here! Everyone should have a look at this journal!
Ian thank you, you've been a massive inspiration on my journey so far.

The Buces look good on the rocks also, covering them as much as you can afford to.
They do well in the soil also. If you do this on the rocks, it will give a more aged look to the tank and make it look bigger than it is actually.
