Rip up that foreground, pour in some white sand and you'll easily get into the top 50 :hilarious:

Superb superb scape George. I wouldn't care what the judges in any competition think of my scape if I had one with your level of finesse. I do agree with Ady's comments though, was slightly surprised with the image that you submitted. Just looked a bit "plug and play" compared to the one Ady linked.

George, the scape is really a work of art.. maybe one of my favorite scapes.. I am copying that one.. :)

Love everything about it.. the rocks, the water movement, the moss, the fish position.. everything is so perfect..

Hi George,

Wow what a journey, well done.

What has been happening with this tank the last few months?

Any updates.

Hi George

I am a novice fish keeper with a (very) low tech planted tank. I am keen to up my game a bit for tank #2 which is on order, and would love to try the DSM and moss/yoghurt paste on some.red moor root. I am conscious that fissidens and riccardia are classed as 'advanced' on the Tropica website, and I was only planning on using easycarbo and tropica specialised. I thought flame moss might be a good alternative to fissidens as it seems slightly easier to grow, but are their any short/compact mosses you would recommend instead of riccardia?

This tank was stunning btw, a definite source of inspiration :)

Hiya. Regular Java moss, Xmas moss and spikey moss would all be ok too. Flame moss grows vertically so consider that depending on the look you're after.

You still got this tank George? I have one to setup and I’m debating what to do with it. Quite like lush green hair grass etc but also with some sand mixed.

Would one AquaRay tablet be enough a bit lower down do you think?
