I am pretty new to aqua scaping. But have kept tropical and marine fish for years. I work in the same building as George Farmer. So it was only a matter of time before I caught the bug for planted tanks. I have been advised to try the dry start method. All turning out well I should hopefully be looking at 3 weeks, then it's filling time! Specifications ADA 45F tank 3 pieces Unipac lava rock 5 small pieces Manzanita wood with Christmas moss attached 3 litres TMC nutra soil black. Plants:- Tropica 1-2-grow hairgrass and E. Tenellus The plan is to have a Crystal Red shrimp breeding tank, no Co2, hang on back filter, LED lighting and RO water. This is the various stages of the tank and as it stands now. 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) Although I would love to claim it was all done on my own, it wouldn't have been possible without all of George's expertise.
