    This pinned topic is for UKAPS members' to showcase the contrast between a newly planted tank and what it looked like as a fully mature finished scape.

    It is designed to be a high-impact and inspirational thread with no dialogue, discussion or feedback.

    For this reason only posts containing the following are to be submitted -

    1. Two full-tank shots, one of a newly planted tank and another of it fully mature.
    2. The aquascape's title.
    3. Aquarium dimensions.
    4. A link to the tank's journal - if possible.

    Posts not containing the above will be edited or deleted. If you wish to comment then you'll be able to do so on the relevant journal, or by PMing the member.

    Here's an example of the format.
