    Goodness gracious me- that's intense.

    So now we have a skillfully executed scape with an equally eye opening In depth write up.

    It was a pleasure to write the analysis and I thank George for allowing me to do it. Before I knew it, I had 3,000 words down and had to stop myself.

    Warm regards

    Added a touch E. parvula and L. brasiliensis around the rocks.

    Those extra plants add a lot to the tank. They're going to soften the rocks up nicely. Lovely work, sir!

    Lovely as usual George. I have always wondered, how do you keep the other plants that spread by runners from growing out from underneath your HC?

    First off, thank you George for a wonderful aqua scape, pictures and video!!!! I've learned and been inspired a lot!!!

    Secondly it's been a complete pleasure reading all the comments and questions. It has been informative and enjoyable.

    I have never read a thread like this before. It is a perfect example of what a forum thread should be like!!!

    Just felt I needed to get that off my chest :)

    Regards, Jonathan

    Thanks, all. :)

    Apologies for the lack of updates recently. I'm currently in the middle of moving jobs and location so my hobby is taking a temporary back seat.

    I'm not going to run this set-up any longer but have decided to give it to a friend who will make great use of it.

    However, I will be continuing to run my NA 65cm, so keep an eye out. :)

    Cheers
    George

    I know i am too late on catching up with this but George the scape is amazing. I could only imagine the amount of time you would have spent daily on this tank to make it look this good:). Hope to follow your new work soon.
